Dark Knight Rises composer Hans Zimmer writes song for victims of Aurora shooting
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Saturday, July 28, 2012
In the aftermath of the Aurora theater shooting, the filmmakers behind The Dark Knight Rises are coming together to help. Warner Bros. has donated money and deferred publizing the box office results of their Batman film out of respect to the shooting victims and their families. Batman star Christian Bale flew into Aurora on his own initiative to visit the recovering victims in hospital, and DC Comics has delayed the publication of their latest issue of Batman.
Now Hans Zimmer, the composer of The Dark Knight Rises movie, has written and released "Aurora", an orchestral track of his own creation. Zimmer has released the music online and wants people to make a donation to the Aurora Victim Relief fund. People can make a donation anywhere between 10 cents to $25 dollars and they will get the full track.
"'Aurora' is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado," said Zimmer on his Facebook page. "I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization."
You can download "Aurora" and make a donation via iTunes or through the MoonToast app below.
