Let's talk movie soundtracks

It's Watercooler Wednesday! Join the discussion!

Zimmer_studio95 Who writes your favorite musical score in movies today? There is one person that rises to the top for me...Hans Zimmer.  My all-time favorite movie soundtrack?  Gladiator...no question.  Gladiator is one of the Number 1 selling movie soundtracks of ALL time.  Hans Zimmer is different than most composers , like a Howard Shore or a John Williams...he is very closed off to performing his music in public and very rarely if ever does he conduct.  His background is Rock and Roll (which is why I love him, I'm sure). "I like working in a collaborative way," he says. "I'm not very ego-driven about being 'The Composer.' Whoever brings in great ideas should be welcomed."
