Watch Hans Zimmer's Inception Score Performed Live
Inception is a great movie, but itís made even better by Hans Zimmerís incredible score. Even if you havenít seen the film, the music from the trailer has almost certainly found its way into your brain. Those blasting French horns, the pounding strings, the pulsing beat which takes over your subconcious as the orchestra swells and then pulls back, only to swell again. Inceptionís score is so good, it can even make other things which are already really good, even better. For instance thereís what it does to the Dark Knight trailer.
What Iím getting at here is that the Inception score is really good. But how would it be performed live? Hereís your answer. Composer Hans Zimmer directed a musical ensemble in an amazing live performance of the filmís score at a premiere, someone video taped it, and now that video is right here online. Watch and listen:
Truthfully for me the score never works better than it does in short doses used in the movieís trailer. But seeing those horns blasting away live, hearing the entire score performed all at once in a single shot, really does add another element of greatness. If Hans Zimmer goes on tour, Iím there. Forget Lady Gaga, Iíve got front row seats at Zimmer.
