"I’m hoping to give fans of this beloved trilogy the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the soundscapes and atmospheres of the world of the Dark Knight. This new app allows users to be part of the film in a way that goes beyond the movie screen—it’s the difference between looking at a photo of a river, and being able to drop your hand over the side of the boat and feel the currents of the water tug as the river takes you on a journey."

Hans Zimmer

"Hans sets creative goals for every film that are higher than you ever thought practical ... or even reachable."

Christopher Nolan

"A CD has tracks that are frozen in time. A Z+ app has musical worlds that evolve and adapt to the listener. Hans is making full use of these new possibilities."

About This App

This app was created by Hans Zimmer and RjDj with the goal to create a cinematic sound experience for your real life. The Z+ augmented sound format synchronises the music with your real life in the same way that the sound of a movie is synchronised to the plot of the movie. If you move the sound changes and adapts to your movement. If you are in a quiet environment it plays music specifically designed for that situation.

Christopher Nolan, Hans Zimmer and RjDj have previously collaborated on Inception The App which uses a similar technique and was downloaded over 5 million times. It was the #1 free App in many countries word wide and has a rating of over 4 stars.

Over the next weeks and months we will be making more content available through this application. We love cinematic music and we hope the Z+ format will attract many new listeners and enrich the experience of all existing fans.
