Name: Derek Hammeke

Location: Olathe, Kansas

Birthdate: April 6, 1983

The Early Years:

I always noticed the music in movies when I was little but

thought everybody did. The first time it hit me that I really

liked score music was when I saw the previews for Armageddon.

They had track 3 from the Rock and the Launch theme from its

own movie. So I started liking scores because of The Rock And


The Middle Years:

For a while I was very stuck on Hans Zimmer scores and loud

military based scores. The Rock, Crimson Tide, Armageddon,

Peacemaker, Speed.

The NOW Years:

I'm more open today. I love all types now, soft, electronic,

loud, all goes.

Score Stats:

Needs: Good Themes - It's the character of the movie.

minute score than an Ok 60 minute
