    Zimmer hasn't really written an old-school power anthem since the POTC theme. He also seems weary of it (he said so himself when I asked him this very question in Krakow a couple of years ago). But I AM expecting a few 'big chords', as Vangelis' original music also had plenty of those; the depth of the image mirrored in the depth of the chord leaps, not unlike INCEPTION.


    He doesn't write themes anymore. If you listen carefully and think about it, he writes chord-motifs. Bold, big-ass chord processions that sort of make a 'theme-like' impression at the end.

  1. Because there is always a recurring motif on top of these progressions. If you had three notes going alone while staying in one chord, that would be weird.

    But then you have Journey to the Line, which is exactly the technique you just described.

    The chords in the thin red line are the basis for the two wonderful themes , and all is hummable and memorable . He doesn't write like that anymore. Now its more riff driven rock style chords by orchestra , and other non orchestral instruments . Its orchestral Zimmer rock , a new genuinely his sound smile

  2. Are we talking about the same theme though?

    I mean, there are two similar chord progressions in Thin Red Line, one is Journey to the Line, the other one, a bit simpler doesn't quite get there (like in the first track). The other themes in Thin Red Line (the "dark march" for Nick Nolte, Witt's theme which is the main theme of the film, Christian Race, which is a bit of a theme for Welsh, if I remember well) aren't based on that at all.

    i am not talking about journey to the line, you are talking about that one I guess? smile there's are a couple of other themes that are prominent and hummable, like in THE LAGOON, another in THE LIGHT, and so on, the score is very romantic (as in the era) and classical (as in structure) with long pieces, like movements, very hummable, naturally progressing etc with clear-cut melodies. Only the journey to the line hints the new zimmer sound.

  3. Much more hints at the new sound, but there is a slightly more traditional structure to it, that's true. The Lagoon (especially the ending theme) and Light themes (and the second part is another hint at the "new Zimmer" as it's a descending motif repeated in chord progression, just like Journey... and it crops up in Hannibal, too) are not relevant in that those (if beautiful, Light is one of the most important musical pieces in my life, period) themes do not recur anywhere else in the film. The main (even central, if we consider Conrado Xalabarder's terminology) theme is Stone in My Heart, actually. Journey to the Line recurs, but the album gives it much more prominence than it actually has in the film. Other recurring themes are Colonel Tall's (the dark march-like theme at the end of The Coral Atoll) and Captain Staros' (reappropriated The Christian Race hymn). I'm trying to recall if Bell has a theme at this moment (the clarinet House of the Spirits-like theme at the end of The Lagoon is for the last letter he gets). And if Sergeant Welsh (I misappropriated Staros' theme as his in the other comment) has one.

    Well it's natural, it's Terence Mallick. He's the worst butcher of music when it comes to music editing in his film. Love his work, but man screw his musical tastes. I am talking about TTRL on album, the single score that I've heard the most times in my life so far and I don't think I will ever surpass it with another.

  4. I'm not sure the score was that much butchered as it was constantly revised. Light has about 3-4 variations which are almost identical, but as the not-so-official material shows, the structure of the score was retained.

    It wouldn't make sense for Journey to the Line to be the main theme of the film, come to think of it. It's what the title says it is: a journey theme.

    The best versions are on the album. A gorgeous, long, coherent and very well-built album. My favorite Z score to date, along with interstellar and gladiator.

    Jeff Danna wrote the score for the old TV adaptation.

    I love the book so much, I hope they don't ruin it.
    Bach's music is heartless and robotic.
  8. The film version. The original Canadian TV edit had different composers.

    Jeff Danna did a good score. It's not been released. Probably won't be if it was recorded in Canada.

    I might be influenced by listening to "The Golden Compass" yesterday, but I think Desplat could do a killer job on this movie.

    The dystopian planet they visit in the book is controlled by a single, regular rhythm (everyone moves in time to it). I could see Desplat's pulsating bass really accentuating that.
