Composer Hans Zimmer has Changed Netflix’s ‘ta-dum’
Netflix has revamped its initial “ta-dum” with the help of Hans Zimmer, a composer who won the Oscar for his work on The Lion King.
As it is popularly said, “renew or die”, a saying that Netflix has taken at face value when it has wanted to renew its classic initial sound, that “ta-dum” that is heard when the application is started or a content of the platform, and for this it has chosen one of the best.
This is how the journalist Siqi Chen has told it through his Twitter account, who in a short 16-second video has shown what Netflix’s new “ta-dum” is like, special for movie theaters, which he has composed, nada more and nothing less, than the great Hans Zimmer.
“The” ta-dum “that serves as Netflix‘s hallmark is one of the best sounds in history, but it doesn’t work very well when it has to be played in a movie theater because it only lasts 3 seconds. So Netflix commissioned Hans Zimmer to spread it for theaters and .. it’s .. great, “wrote the journalist next to a video in which we can listen to the new 16-second version with the classic Zimmer crescendo and without losing the” ta -dum “which is already universal.
The Netflix “ta-dum” soundmark is one of the all time greats, but doesn’t work as well in a theater because it’s only 3 seconds long.

It is clear that Netflix is taking its career very seriously to also take over the cinema, and has not only added directors like Martin Scorsese, with his The Irishman, or David Fincher to its ranks, but it has also acquired Hans Zimmer, one of Hollywood’s most prolific songwriters who won an Oscar for his work on the soundtrack of The Lion King but has also put music to Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy or the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984.
