If it weren’t for Kendrick Lamar, composer Hans Zimmer would have had the best set at this year’s Coachella. Our own David Brendan Hall described it as “a distinct privilege to witness such a master in action.” Coachella’s organizers apparently thought so too, as they’ve now uploaded high-resolution video of his weekend one set for our eternal enjoyment.

Even in pre-recorded form, Zimmer’s performance is a sight to behold. In the video above, you can watch Zimmer and his massive orchestra perform a selection of material from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, including “Why So Serious?”, “Like a Dog Chasing Cars”, and “Bane Suite”. Below, check out a double dose of Inception tracks in the form of “Dream is Collapsing” and “Mombasa”, as well as music from the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Zimmer has been able to cram even more of his epic film scores into setlists for his proper tour, which continues this weekend in New Zealand. He’ll be back stateside come July, however, and you can find his complete upcoming schedule below.
