Even though he composed the soundtrack of over one hundred films from the 80s to today, the name of Hans Zimmer is starting to be recognized only in more recent times, due to its contribution to the hugely successful movies like Gladiator, The Da Vinci Code , The Last Samurai, Inception, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He is now Christopher Nolan’s preferred choice for the music of his movies, always able to accompany those articulated stories with music which accentuates the tension of the images.
The latest collaboration between Hans Zimmer and Christopher Nolan was for Interstellar, gentle but with high-impact: a soundtrack with characteristics that you can miss when you watch the movie the first time. The video below provides a visual representation of the Main Theme of the movie and reveals its geometric harmony.
The video shows the exciting progression of music, with an increasing complexity that involves and charms. Through the visual lines you are able to grasp the humble and minimal character of the music, always contained in confined spaces, always careful not to get away too quickly from trajectories created step by step.
The video was produced by Patrik Pietschmann, a German pianist who performed the composition and has also programmed the software that produced the visual execution. It was uploaded to youtube a while ago and it’s increasing its popularity among social and magazines constantly.
