Vox releases short film explaining Hans Zimmer's music composition techniques
Vox Media and Ezra Klein posted a 6-minute video explaining the compositional techniques of Hanz Zimmer in some of his scores, especially the recent film Dunkirk, here.
The video explains some compositional techniques like the Shepherd’s Tone.
These are probably used by other younger modern composers. I sent the link along to the Metropolis Ensemble in New York City.
The music is particularly interesting in Christopher Nolan’s films, which often deal with ambiguities in time and reality layer.
