List of Hans Zimmer quotes.

I think this one has more electronics in it than anything else.. I didn't want to do straight orchestra because Batman, he's not a straight character. I mean where do you get those wonderful toys from and the technology? So I thought I could embrace a bit more technology in this one.. there isn't a straight orchestral note on this score. - about his score for Batman Begins (2005)


I don't drive, so one of my assistants drives me to my writing room, and I have a calendar on the wall telling me how much time I have left, and how far behind I am. I look at it and panic, and decide which scene to work on. And you sit there plonking notes until something makes sense, and you don't think about it any more. Good tunes come when you're not thinking about it.


If the secret should be known, which is not much of a secret at all, this is my hobby I love doing this. Anything else feels like work to me.
