Sorry, Zimmerite, but the man doesn't get to redefine what an orchestra is, just to inflate what amounts to a lot of live percussionists. The orchestra is, by definition, instrumentalists combining string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections. Zimmer is a sound designer at best, but not a composer. ...Certainly not the best composer of our time. That title undoubtedly belongs to the man who scored the original Superman.
