    Hey @christianhenson. As a previous advocate of old skool "separate-tracks-for-articulations" - have you had a chance to play with the Logic 10.4 articulation mapping thingy? Any thoughts?

    Some of my favorite scores you have done are not the big action blockbusters but stuff like Green Card, The Preacher's Wife, It's Complicated, The Holiday & Hidden Figures. I am also a huge fan of Interstellar precisely because the music isn't what the average person would expect a Zimmer sci-fi score to be, yet it still plays a huge part in setting the emotional feel of the film.

    I never cease to be amazed at both the sheer volume and diversity of the films and music you are involved with along with the quality and integration of the "little bits" with the film, not the big bombastic bits.

    I don't even think Hans sounds like Hans a lot of the time - at least according to what many around here think he sounds like ;)

    The score to Rain Man was one of the reasons why I got into this.

    Christian, too bad about Infinite Jets but perhaps it's just one of those pedals you need to plug a real guitar into (and Leo) to get the best out of.

    Yup, I guess being kind of called a twat by one my favorite film composers and most listened to in all his variety for, what, 20 years, up there with Williams, Thomas Newman or Newton-Howard is something of, well an honnor ? :grin:

    As a non native speaking english I was a tad warry my post would be, hum, misunderstood, as I was rather genuily"defending" Mr Henson assertion about the "journey more important than the destination" or "method as essential than the result" and composers trying to sound like the New Bold Zimmer whithout sharing his A to Z knowledge of the craft to achieve such a sound.

    BTW, pling plong's The Weather Man never ceased to amaze me.

    But hey, that's the Interweb...

    Oh, and while I'm disclosing my fanboy side here, to my own disgrace, I must say how much I enjoy Mr Henson vlog : both tone (?) and editing and cinematography and, well, generosity and abundance.
    ps : "rant" has not the meaning I thought it had, ahah.Anyway...

    I don't see Hans responding or mentioning the Trevor Horn days much?

    We're completely OT here but if you do some research, Mr Zimmer mentionned something like he was ripped off back in the early Buggles days.

    Some of my very best friends are complete twats...and most the time I’m one, too! So welcome to the club of ludicrous assertions, profoundly unprofound and unproven theories, etc! We are hopefully Monty Python’s “The Pope and Michaelangelo’s” Michaelangelos. Now, there was a twat!
