Description

Hans Zimmer | James Newton Howard - Batman Begins

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard’s moody, intense score perfectly complements director Christopher Nolan’s dark world.

In Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan has re-worked the character and the gothic/art-deco land of the previous films has been replaced with a more believable world. Here, the composers have produced a perfect sound palette and have successfully tapped into the psychological aspects of the story as well as the psyche of the main character himself.

Hans Zimmer comments: “I really turned the orchestra basically on its head. In a funny way I made the orchestra more into the electronics and the electronics more into the orchestra. It’s hard to explain, but the orchestra never got to play the way a normal orchestra plays”

Reviews

Something of a landmark score thanks to the heavyweight composer team-up, fears of overkill are soon allayed: the result is an outright success. Admittedly, there’s no instantly memorable character theme à la Danny Elfman’s Batscore, but what there is in abundance is mood music - exactly what Batman demands.

The division is clear: Zimmer takes care of the action, dominated by his signature thunderous percussion and a thoroughly effective two-note motif that works a treat, while Howard’s luscious, string-drenched cues amply capture the film’s more intense, haunting moments. When Zimmer claimed this was “unmistakably Batman”, he wasn’t kidding.
