I love cinematic scores. Over the years there have been so many pieces that just define the genre of (typically) modern classical music. One of my (and I’m sure many other music fans) favorite composers is Hans Zimmer, and to that point, the score for “Interstellar” is possibly the very best. Even my kid... mellowdave.com

@mellowdave Indeed. To anyone who thinks classical music is dead, I would point to John Williams on one side, and Hans Zimmer on the other. And even for opera, there are Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd: the best opera of the 20th century) and now Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@miljko Such a good point with Sweeney Todd. That’s an underrated piece for sure.

@mellowdave Hans Zimmer is fantastic! The work he does for a Nolan film is always fantastic. Interstellar is a great example. I'm also partial to Inception myself.

@mellowdave @joelhamill watched Interstellar today with LOUD surround sound, and the emotions were turned up to 11. Also became clearer how Nolan used sudden silences in space

@warner its a masterpiece of sound manipulation. In the same vein, the torpedoing scene from Dunkirk, as well as the fishing trawler on the beach.

@mellowdave I so heartily agree. Interstellar’s score is so amazing…
