A Place Among The Stars (Happy Birthday Hans Zimmer!)



Born on September 12th 1957 in Frankfurt am Main West Germany, Hans Zimmer took a few weeks of piano lessons before he decided he was against the discipline of formal lessons. Mainly self taught thanks to computers, he has integrated classical music with electronic music and has created a sizable and otherworldly sound, thanks to his longtime partnership with the great modern director Christopher Nolan.
His work from the '80's to today range from just about every genre in film. From dramas, comedy, animated, period pieces and genre film. He's created rousing pirate anthems for projects like The Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise to soaring superhero epics like "Man Of Steel" and The Dark Knight Trilogy. His scores for Christopher Nolan's original features like "Inception" and "Interstellar" are as sublime as any great piece of movie music.
For all of his amazing work for any and all genre of film, I would like to point out his underrated horror scores for films like "The Ring" and "Hannibal," the sequel to the horror masterpiece "The Silence Of The Lambs." They're usually not mentioned among the great horror scores, but they can easily be included to any great Halloween scary music playlist and give the collection a touch of class.
Thank you Mr. Zimmer for an outstanding output of great musical soundscapes. Truly one of the greats of film composers.
