Hans Zimmer

Modern Composer By: Dustin Alcon

Early Life

Hans was born on September 7th, 1957, in Frankfurt, Germany. He had no musical education prior to high school. He attended high school in London. He was self taught.


Hans has composed the scores for some of the most famous movies, video games and TV shows in recent history including The Dark Knight, Inception, Assassins Creed and The Walking Dead.


I think Hans has stayed relevant because he is one of the only real composers of the modern age. Some of the most memorable compositions form some of the best movies are credited to him.
