Listening Post



For those who haven't yet heard this, Hans Zimmer composed and recorded what's essentially an updated version of The End from the soundtrack to The Dark Knight and released it as a tribute to those who died in the Aurora, Colorado shooting.

The source material was excellent to begin with -- it's one of the most powerful compositions Zimmer has put together in years -- but this is simply an extraordinary piece of music.

Here's Aurora.
