As a longtime lover of movie soundtracks and a huge fan of prolific composer Hans Zimmer, I eagerly anticipated the release of The Dark Knight Rises. The marriage of Christopher Nolan’s films and Hans Zimmer’s scores has again and again proven to be a match made in heaven (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Inception). The mood of each film is reflected brilliantly in every note of the soundtrack, and the latest collaboration between the director and composer is no exception.
This fascinating video offers a glimpse into Zimmer and Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Richard King’s involvement in The Dark Knight Rises: watch and learn about the origins of the bloodcurdling chant, the snarl of the flying machine, the Bat, and the distinctive lilt of Bane’s voice.[youtube.com/watch?v=QthReoB7YNo]
