Oscar-winning film composer Hans Zimmer has joined Euphonix's (Palo Alto, Calif.) Board of Directors. Zimmer is also an active board member for Steinberg Media Technologies AG.
"Although my primary focus is on composition," Zimmer said, "I appreciate the contribution of technology in the creative process and have closely watched Euphonix become a leading player in digital audio. Its experience in mixing technologies for music and post applications is second to none, and I can see some very exciting opportunities in the future for its technology that I want to be a part of and contribute my ideas toward. I am also searching out new ways to push the boundaries of the art when composing music. Euphonix has helped me do that in the past, and I believe that there is much more to collaborate on in the future."
Zimmer, who won the Best Original Score for The Lion King (1984) and a Grammy for both The Lion King and Crimson Tide, has scored dozens of movies as varied as Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, Thin Red Line, Rain Man, Driving Miss Daisy, and Thelma and Louise. He is also head of music for Dreamworks SKG and co-owner with Jay Rifkin of the Media Ventures film-scoring facility in Santa Monica, Calif.
