Article Excerpt:

Anne Mariehere with an observation: Hans Zimmer's studio is incredible.The ten-time Academy Award nominated composer has furnished his studio in a manner that fits the man who wrote the dramatic scores toInception,Gladiator,and the Dark Knight trilogy.The walls are deep red,and lined with dark wood bookshelves bursting with books,albums,candles,and knick knacks.Light filters through stained glass-covered hanging lamps.Overstuffed couches and chairs sit on a raised platform.Clashing with this rustic scene are the walls of musical instruments,blinking sound equipment,and Zimmer's high tech work station.It's a lot to take in.

When I'm led into the room for an interview,I'm still recovering from car trouble.I'd been listening to Zimmer's Oscar-nominated score forInterstellarin the car,which had somehow led to my car stalling on the highway.Miraculously,I'm not late.When I meet Hans Zimmer,he is deservedly proud of his workspace,and immediately launches into conversation.Zimmer speaks animatedly of his decorating philosophy,decades-long partnership with Chris Nolan,the trouble with organs,and why he loves the Academy.

Anne Marie: This is an amazing room.This is quite possibly the coolest room I have ever been in.

Hans Zimmer: No,but hang on.There's a reason.There's a pragmatic reason: If you had to spend 98% of your life in one room,you might as well have some fun with it.Do you agree?

Anne Marie: Iabsolutelyagree!

Hans Zimmer: And you know what,sometimes we just move the furniture out of this way and let the musicians come in,and we just start playing,and wow!Music!

Anne Marie: Oh my goodness!Talk about a great creative space.

Hans Zimmer: And that was,that was partly why I did it.I was sitting with this wonderful editor,Richie Marks,y'know [he] worked onApocalypse Now,and all the Jim Brooks movies,Penny Marshall [films],The Godfathertoo.I'm sitting on the couch in his cutting room,I'm sort of leaning back,and I'm looking at the--what do you call those,y'know the ceiling with the sort of… they look like cottage cheese.

Anne Marie: Ceiling tiles I think?

Hans Zimmer: Right?It's horrible!And the walls,which have this y'know horrible hospital color,and I'm thinking,"This great man is trying to create art!"and y'know the bad linoleum floor.Y'know?And this is,this is,this is,every day he has to go to this horrible room!So,Richie doesn't actually know this,but it was really partially because I thought,"Poor Richie,in this horrible environment!I'm going to do my own!"

Anne Marie: Well from such an environment,I can see where something dramatic likeInterstellarcame from.I have to admit,my car stalled on the way here while I was listening to theInterstellarsoundtrack!

Hans Zimmer: [Laughs]It'll do that to cars!
