The Instrumental Heartbeat of Cinema

When a story is so unique and stellar, it’s difficult to let it go.

Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer are film making BFF’s (perhaps not the bonding phrase these reserved movie maestros would use). The many collaborations with Mr. Nolan writing and directing and Mr. Zimmer composing powerful accompanying movie soundtracks have left audiences in awe and amazement in the theater and in the years beyond the film’s premiere. The video below has been featured on this blog before, yet its story of how the score of the emotionally-driven Interstellar (2014) evolved from a rather ambiguous note is remarkable.

And Throwback Thursday seems like a fitting day to showcase the kind of random spark that creates movie magic.

That’s why we go to the movies…

and it’s inspiring that there are movie-makers who know why.
