20 Billion-Dollar Composer: For Hans Zimmer, ‘The Real Risk Is Playing It Safe’

7 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Composer Hans Zimmer — the first creative to raise Variety’s Billion-Dollar milestone 20-fold since the series was introduced in 1993 — likes to take chances.

Who else would have:

» Recorded a London brass section, electronically processed their sounds, then played them back through speakers placed in the studio’s stairwells for an even stranger soundscape in “Inception”?

» Solicited choral contributions from fans via the Internet to create a 100,000-voice chant that would eventually appear in “The Dark Knight Rises”?

» Traveled to Eastern Europe to record Roma gypsy violinists and accordionists to incorporate into his music for “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”?

» Defied comicbook, heroic-music tradition by creating “drum circles” of renowned percussionists creating grooves that he could then employ in his “Man of Steel” score?

Avicii, Armin van Buuren for Disney Edm remix album Dconstructed

13 March 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Avicii and Kaskade are among the DJs who have reworked some of Disney's classic songs for a remix album.

The LP, called Dconstructed, includes 14 Edm mixes of tracks such as 'Circle Of Life' from The Lion King by Mat Zo, Frozen's 'Let It Go' by Armin van Buuren, and 'Derezzed' from Tron: Legacy by Avicii.

"I feel incredibly honoured to have remixed an Oscar-winning song - though I didn't know that yet when I started," Van Buuren said on his version of 'Let It Go'.

Avicii added: "My first remix of Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy was so long ago, but it was a significant moment of recognition in my career. It's great to be a part of it again, to refresh the track, and to let everyone hear Negin's voice."

Other tracks on the collection include a house version of 'Baby Mine' from Dumbo by Kaskade »
