All these great people went on Reddit and did the greatest Ask Me Anything (AMA).
And me, the idiot, missed them out :(
So turned out, the great HZ secretly lurked Reddit and Youtube... and he loves cat, just like the rest of netizens! He dropped out of high/middle-school and completely self-taught (If there is a Superman in music, this dude fits for it!). The great HZ is critical to his own awesome music. He doesn't even know why his music is superbly epic (so humble :). And this made me smile, proves that he's just as cool dude as your bro!
Then... probably loved the circlejerks of Reddit so much, Hans Zimmer came back for the 2nd time. Which I also missed out. >:(
Some fun fact of him:
- One of his favorite soundtrack is from There Will Be Blood by Jonny Greenwood.
- No wonder his music is so warm but also so dark. He loves the cello.
- He once created sound by destroying a piano with sledgehammer, for the movie Sherlock Homes.
- He drinks MexiCoke.
- And he got something to say about ABBA. Lol.
- His favorite superhero and villian.
- He cannot read music. Instead he learns by listening. Awesome!
Some tips from him on music composition:
- Translating real orchestra sounds to virtual music programming.
- Using deadline to push yourself beyond the limit.
- Some great tips. Another one.
- Virtual vs Real Orchestra mastering.
Rumor he's gonna do another AMA next year... This is the first musician on IAMA done giant AMAs twice. I'm sure not gonna miss it or I'll kill myself!
If you're an American, Canuck or English dude who love horror, sci-fi and thriller novels, Stephen King is someone you must know of!
