I audited a UCLA “music in film” class that my girlfriend was taking. The instructor, Paul Chihara, who is a very noted modern composer who worked frequently with Sidney Lumet, called Zimmer the “musical antichrist”, and I have to agree. You can’t just vomit notes, mix it to ear-bleeding levels, and calm that a film score. I do like PAPERHOUSE, but half the cues aren’t his

Hans Zimmer is the Max Martin of film composers. I cant go to the movies anymore without hearing Zimmer`s awful distorted bass drops. There are so many talented electronic music composers out there that can do a lot better than Skrillex taking a shite. Thanks for ruining Blade Runner`s classic score too BTW.
