Hans Zimmer wants your voice in The Dark Knight Rises


While The Dark Knight Rises continues shooting somewhere in New York City or New Jersey (poor buggers), composer Hans Zimmer is asking fans to record their voices and help contribute to the music of the film. Zimmer said in a brief statement:

I’m shining the bat-signal up into the sky to call you all! 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. It’s easy: 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!

I seem to recall Peter Jackson similarly turning to a large crowd for The Two Towers — during a cricket match, he got 30,000 people to chant in unison for the Battle of Helm’s Deep.

You can learn more about this on the Ujam page for The Dark Knight Rises. Apropos of all your pretty voices, we’ve got a clip of Batman (the one and only Kevin Conroy) singing after the jump.
