Composer Hans Zimmer Wants Your Voice for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     November 4, 2011


Today I’m very happy to bring you The Dark Knight Rises news that doesn’t involve grainy pictures of Christian Bale’s back. Composer Hans Zimmer is one of the best in the business, and he’s currently at work on the score for The Dark Knight Rises with James Newton Howard (the two also did The Dark Knight and Batman Begins) (Edit: Howard actually won’t be joining Zimmer on Dark Knight Rises after all). Zimmer is now turning to you, Batman fans, for help. It appears that they’ll be crowdsourcing audio to put into the finished film, and anyone with a microphone-equipped computer can participate. Hit the jump for the details.

Zimmer is organizing the crowdsourcing through (via, where he’s posted a brief message to Bat fans the world over:

“We need to hear your voices! Now and Loud! We are creating the sound of a worldwide chant. Everyone come and be part of it. It’s easy: There is no such thing as out-of-tune, no timing we can’t fix later. If you mumble, growl, scream or whisper, it’s all good. Make it yours. If you only get halfway through, no problem! Do it alone, bring your friends, but do it with energy and commitment.Let your voice be heard and be a part of our adventure!”

No word on exactly how this all fits into the film, but you may remember the first chant-enhanced teaser trailer for the film, so this might have something to do with that. Head over to Ujam’s Dark Knight Rises page to make yourself a movie star.
