Zimmers Tamborine   Thursday, March 14, 2002 (4:17 a.m.) 

My favorite score by Hans Zimmer! I really really love the Japanese percussion.
(Where the Japanese spy is talking on the phone: "Do you have any air tours to the Valley of Oahu... You do!?") & in the track "Attack" on the CD. I really like the single tamborine sounds that Zimmer used in both Gladiator & Pearl Harbor. But it is used much more in PH. It has been a Zimmer trademark for a while now. This tamborine sound is clearly heard when one of the American Admiral is saying something like: "I wonder if i should put the Paciffic Fleet on full alert". But it exist on other parts of the film too.

My highest wish for the moment is that WB Records will realease
a "More music from the motion picture Pearl Harbor" CD.

I really hope that there is more poeple who like what i said
above so that i am not alone.

//Mike

Yep! And what's up with that "MMFPH" CD now?   Thursday, March 14, 2002 (11:28 a.m.) 

hi, i sent You a message a few days ago where i asked You "is it true that this "MMFPH" CD shall be produced?" (You didn't really understand my question as it was a short message from my self-phone where i can't write with the full sentences. i didn't receive a complete response from You too ). anyway, i ask You it 'coz it seems You're a Zimmer's fan who's "well informed" 'bout his scores. so, please, let us know if You get some new information 'buot this producing...

bye

For the track, "Attack," I am not entirely certain if that is a tamborine. If it is, it shouldn't be, not if Zimmer intended it to be ethnically accurate. I do know there is a similar japanese instrument that it may have been, although its name eludes me at this moment. You are right, however, in that it really adds to the music.
