Interview with Hans Zimmer
 
The music does need to stand on its own two feet. Hans Zimmer

Classically Speaking
Classical music in West Virginia and Beyond - Hans Zimmer: Angels, Demons & Men in Skirts


I love movies. I get so lost in them. Music is such a big part of the film experience -- it is «the wings of a film.»

When I had a chance to speak with Hans Zimmer, one of my favorite film composers, I was elated. His music is very distinctive and so deftly blended with the images that they become as one. That’s the mark of a great film composer.

Zimmer’s career is one the world’s most stellar. From The Lion King to Gladiator to his latest film with Ron Howard, Angels and Demons, Zimmer must be the busiest composer in Hollywood. I was a little intimidated talking with such a renowned composer, but Zimmer’s down-to-earth warmth and honest sense of humor made it fun for both of us.

Here’s part one of my interview, where Zimmer explains how he got his start and his unique process of working with a director.

Where does a composer get his texts if the score calls for it? For Angels and Demons, Zimmer takes an idea he used in Gladiator: make up your own, even if it’s not an actual language. Also, we learn what he meant by “men in skirts and sandals” and hilarious reason why the fanfare scenes in Gladiator were cut.

I could not resist asking Zimmer about his work for Hannibal, the follow-up to Silence of the Lambs. The music is full of delightful textures and becomes a separate character at times. Zimmer shares his insights about director Ridley Scott and some behind-the-scenes stories that give us a rare glimpse into the filmmaking world.

The live album, The Wings of a Film, is a great overview of his work. The cut “Journey to the Line” is particularly powerful, showing some minimalism influence. His somewhat experimental approach to this piece raised the ire of a few musicians. Hear his funny and honest anecdote about the performance of the piece.

The complete article is available here on wvpubcast.org, with audio-interview from Hans Zimmer.

Brad Pitt als Fein im zweiten Teil von Sherlock Holmes?
 
Brad Pitt soll in der Fortsetzung von Sherlock Holmes die Rolle des Rivalen Moriarty übernehmen. Der erste Teil startet hierzulande am 28. Januar 2010 in den Kinos.

Laut Cinemablend.com soll Brad Pitt im zweiten Teil den Bösewicht Moriarty verkörpern. Robert Downey Jr. als Sherlock Holmes und Jude Law als Watson wurden ebenfalls bereits für die Fortsetzung verpflichtet. Es besteht jedoch die Möglichkeit, dass Moriarty alias Brad Pitt bereits einen kurzen Auftritt in Sherlock Holmes 1 haben wird, da der böse Professor bereits am Ende des ersten Teil zu sehen sein soll.

Komponiert wird der Film von Hans Zimmer. Produziert von Guy Ritchie.

News By The Way: Sean Connery in Indiana Jones 5?
 
Kehrt Sean Connery zurück zu Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford)?

Laut Ireland Online soll der ehemalige James Bond Darsteller Sean Connery nochmals zu Indiana Jones zurückkehren. Im vierten Teil der Reihe starb seine Rolle zwar, aber es gäbe eine gute Story oder gute Gründe ihn wieder einspielen zu lassen, so die Macher von Indiana Jones.

Wieso Sir Sean Connery seine Meinung, die zur Absage seiner Beteiligung an Indiana Jones 4 geführt hatte, für Indiana Jones 5 plötzlich geändert haben soll, wird nicht berichtet. Aber er will zurück und Steven Spielberg und George Lucas empfangen ihn sehr gerne, falls er den Wunsch äussert mitzumachen.

Für Fans könnte aber Indy's Vater nochmals zurückkehren, was eine fantastische Nachricht ist :-)
