Hans Zimmer: Inception Behind the Scenes

By:  FandangoNOW Extras

According to Zimmer, the soundtrack for Inception is “a very electronic score”. Nolan asked Zimmer to compose and finish the score as he was shooting the film. The composer said,” He wanted to unleash my imagination in the best possible way”. At one point, while composing the score, Zimmer incorporated a guitar sound reminiscent of Ennio Morricone and was interested in having Johnny Marr, former guitarist in the influential 80s rock band The Smiths, play these parts. Zimmer’s reported inspiration was finding a synthesizer track that he had written similar to Marr’s guitar style. Nolan agreed with Zimmer’s suggestion, and then Zimmer approached Marr, who accepted his offer. Marr spent four 12-hour days working on the score, playing notes written by Zimmer with a 12-string guitar.
