Hans Zimmer Needs YOUR Voice for 'The Dark Knight Rises' Score!

The Dark Knight Rises

Now here's an awesome bit of The Dark Knight Rises news to send your way. A post on mentions that there's a new page located on music site UJAM where Hans Zimmer is asking fans to record their voice and submit it to become a part of The Dark Knight Rises score. What?! Yep, this is real, and it's awesome, definitely something you will want to be a part of. "Composer Hans Zimmer invites you to take part in the Dark Knight legend," it says, asking to record a chant like "Bah-Sah-Rah" that, we presume, will be used as part of the Bane pieces of music in the score, or who knows. Read on for the site & more details!

To participate and submit your own recording, just visit this page on UJAM. The page features a few details and a message from Hans Zimmer: "I'm shining the bat-signal up into the sky to call you all!" As expected, there aren't any details on what this will exactly be used for, or in what ways even, as the secrecy is still on full for Christopher Nolan's final Batman epic. "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," Zimmer says. It's easy - so go do it and send one over right now! I love this part of the message, too:

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!

This is such a unique concept and I'm loving the interaction and fan-involvement. There's an "Example Recording" of a chant on the UJAM page and just listening to that, it gets pretty frickin' cool and imagining Bane riling up the hordes of Gotham and kicking Batman's ass while this is playing in the background is so awesome. This also reminds me of Tron Legacy recording a set of cheers and sounds from the "crowd" inside Comic-Con's Hall H a few years ago, which was recorded and integrated into the actual movie during the arena scenes. I hope everyone who wants gets to send a recording, otherwise I can't wait to hear how it all turns out next year! We'll keep you updated on any/everything The Dark Knight Rises in the meantime.

  • He actually did this just a few months back with the Assassin's Creed: Revelations soundtrack he's working on. While I think it's a cool concept I'm a little wary of the idea. I don't know the details for this particular competition, but for Assassin's Creed the prize money was ultimately pretty insubstantial, and seemed sort of like perhaps they were just looking for a way to cut their budget.

    Who cares if they're trying to cut the budget, I'd give my left nut to have my name featured in the credits of TDKR
    • Qrue3sixteen
      Yeah, that would be cool, but you do realize your name won't show up, right?
  • any speculation on the chat? It's Moroccan and means "He Rises"...sounds like a reference to Ra's al Ghul
