Hans Zimmer: “Filmmaking Is Collaborative, Why Does It Need To Stop When It Comes To Music?”

by Peter D. Marshall

Hans Zimmer is one of the most in demand composers at the moment, and with that busy schedule, he’s called in collaborators to help bring his work to life. The forthcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” score will feature Zimmer working alongside Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski, Steve Mazzaro and Incubus member Mike Einzinger. That process can sometimes bring into question who is the real writer or author of the score, occasionally creating a minor controversy when it comes to credit (please see the “Inception” BRAAAM debate). But for Zimmer as long as it’s his idea, he believes who helps execute that vision comes secondary.

“Filmmaking is collaborative, why does it need to stop when it comes to music? Because the director doesn’t have the vocabulary? The musicians I work with speak English as well as I do, we’re talking about story, character, pace, editing. We’re talking about the film as a whole,” he told Thompson On Hollywood.
