Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's the Dark Knight : A Film Score Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's the Dark Knight : A Film Score Guide Paperback / softback

Part of the Film Score Guides series

Paperback / softback

Description

Christopher Nolan's caped crusader trilogy-Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises-is considered by many to be one of the finest translations of comic book characters to the big screen.

The second film in the series, The Dark Knight, was both a critical and commercial success, featuring an Oscar-winning performance by Heath Ledger as the Joker.

The score-by Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer and eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard-also received accolades, including a Grammy.

Intricately interwoven with the sound design-and incorporating Mel Wesson's ground-breaking ambient music design, -Zimmer's and Howard's music gives the film an added layer of ominous tones that makes palpable the menace facing Gotham City. In Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's The Dark Knight: A Film Score Guide, Vasco Hexel delves into the composers' backgrounds to reveal the many facets of meaning in the highs and lows of the score.

This book also highlights the working methods of Zimmer and Howard and how they collaborated with each other and the filmmaking team to create such a memorable soundtrack. By drawing on unprecedented access to some of the key creators of the film, the author provides unique insights into the score's composition.

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's The Dark Knight: A Film Score Guide will be of interest to cinema and music scholars, as well as fans of both composers.
