I cannot get over how talented some people are…
And I have endless respect for their work.
I am talking about music composers, of course.
What pool of endless creativity do they possess?
What kind of feelings do these brilliant people have?
This one, after 2:06 …
I cannot comprehend how someone thought of this amazing and brilliant piece of art.
And there are many other masterpieces out there.
This song… It transports you to another world. I cannot explain it.
How can such a monster of creation (it’s a Greek expression) be compared to modern songs, Lady Gaga for example?! Don’t you dare compare them to my face.
Such music like Eptesicus, is… epic.
And it is supposed to be so. It is supposed to provoke great feelings from inside you. But that’s ok. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that moment when you listen to the composed music, and it flows all around and within you, flooding you with all the feelings it wants to give.
Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Jeremy Soule, how can I ever thank you enough? How can I express my immense gratitude and respect for you? Movies would not be the same without you. I would not be the same without you. You have given hope when times were dark, a ray of light in the shadows. With you I have felt courage, and determination. An unseen friend.
Your mark will not go unseen or forgotten.
Unfortunately my vocabulary is not very rich, so I cannot think of anymore adjectives to describe my feelings for what you do and what you have created.
Credit should be given where credit is due. Eptesicus was written by James Newton Howard who collaborated with Hans Zimmer for the Batman Begins film score. And of course all my praise and awe goes to him as well, not only to the three that I mentioned above. This particular piece you created is a masterpiece.
Oh, how I would love to watch a rendition of such works of art in person. In a great hall, by an orchestra of course. Opportunities like these are once-in-a-lifetime.
P.S. Look at me. It’s 03:30 in the wee hours of the morning, unable to unglue myself from the chair and interrupt my reverie. I simply don’t want to, yet.
How did I stumble on this after so many years? The series Heroes has this very song in the first episode of Season 1. And if you ask me, they couldn’t have picked a better and more fitting song to start with. As soon as I heard the first notes, I knew it was from Batman Begins. 🙂
I will paste here what we first hear in the pilot episode. I like it a lot, so I wanted to share it with you. Of course it’s not the same reading it and hearing it, so I urge you to watch those first few minutes. You may end up watching a whole series. 🙂
Where does it come from?
This quest, this need to solve life’s mysteries,
when the simplest of questions can never be answered.
Why are we here?
What is the soul?
Why do we dream?
Perhaps we’d be better off not looking at all.
Not delving, not yearning.
That’s not human nature.
Not the human heart.
That is not why we are here.
