The Hans Zimmer Composer Round Table

The Hans Zimmer Composer Round Table

By: Spitfire Audio

Spitfire Audio presents a rare insight into the workings of some of the finest film composers. A round table discussion with (From left) Ramin Djaw.

Ten times Oscar nominated (1 win) composer Hans Zimmer has really come into his own as the great ambassador for film music. That’s not to say that other composers haven’t been doing the same for a very long time, but he’s certainly doing it the most recently.

The group of seven (from left) Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Pacific RimJacob Shea (Blue Planet II), Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class, Man in the High Castle), Hans Zimmer (everything, pretty much), Ben Wallfisch (Blade Runner: 2049IT), Zimmer collaborator Andy Page (Dunkirk, The Martian), and David Fleming (Blue Planet II) talk about every aspect of their current work.

They touch on several subject, like the bane of their existence (temp music), and the use of technology.

“Cool people don’t play loud,” Zimmer says, talking about studio performances from long-time players.  He’s full of wisdom and stories, and very much still approaches his chosen life’s work as anything but.
