Hans Zimmer's Upcoming Projects

First off, I've totally seen him live - he's so much fun! Second, I love that he's out there advocating to keep projects moving forward so other musicians are getting work as well. Finally, I LOVE that he's bringing light to " a Black Music Matters More Than Ever orchestra" through his Lion King sco...

Let's Celebrate Composer Ennio Morricone - What a Legend

Saddened to wake up to read the news in Deadline that Ennio Morricone passed away. He is a legend and one who truly influenced cinema. Let's celebrate him here. Has his work influenced you in any way? My favorite work of his was Cinema Paradiso.

Julia Petrisor

super loss for music in film - this guy was a true legend indeed!

Allen Lynch

A true legend. He will be missed, his music and legacy will never be forgotten.

Tony Germann

From the classic Spaghetti Westerns to The Battle of Algiers, The Untouchables and Cinema Paradiso, his compositions helped make these films true classics. I'll be raising a glass this evening.

Vladislav Savvateev

We love you, Ennio! and so many songs that we love. Ok, this one takes me back to my childhood days: "Le Professionel" https://youtu.be/gWm_xFuM5ZE

Remixes: Love 'em or Leave 'em?

Grace Yee Right?! It's hard for me to not get misty with that African thumb piano as Aang's theme. So touching, no matter what beat you put it to.

Composing in the time of Corona Virus

Hi everyone,

I'm sure I'm not the only composer who's worried about how the next few months will affect work.

I've been considering how to have a perspective shift on the situation. Rather than thinking, "I don't know when the next film scoring job will come along", instead I'm trying to focus on the...

David Obaniyi

Yes. I think we should all be really worried trying to write music that's really emotional and serve the project's vision while also worry about the financial risks that come with planning a few months or even the rest of the year down the road. We're in unusual, uncertain, weird times. haha

Short film soundtrack

Hi guys, anyone here who can help me with some music? I’m currently writing a script for a short film, a drama about 2 close friends, about death, grief and that feeling when you lose someone. I get very inspired by all sorts of songs when I’m writing something, it helps me a lot. Can you help me please? Thank you so much! :)
