Zimmertime – Time – by Hans Zimmer from #Inception – on the Modular

Patch notes below. It’s a shame there’s no ‘bought it’ button when these ‘masterclass’ commercials play just before any youtube video. I just can’t seem to watch a video without mr. Zimmer talking about dodgy questions and answers. I took his course because I am a huge fan of his work, and he taught me this : if you find a rule, go break it. And even more important: don’t be like me (hans), be like yourself. I will try. But not today. In this video I’d like to thank my Jedi Master and be a bit like him.

It’s not very obvious, but the theme of ‘Time’ is only four notes: C, G, B and G flat. There’s another B one octave higher. That’s also what I love about mr. Zimmer’s work. You don’t have to study music for ten years to play his compositions and they’re perfect for playing them on a modular. I am definitely going to try the BatMan theme next because that’s just two notes for the bass and two notes for the huge brass. Wouldn’t that be fun on a Shared System with the DPO! There are two reasons why I share this track: 1) i love it and 2) it helps you discover the potential of your modular.
