NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) - Hans Zimmer, the composer for “The Dark Knight Rises,” has composed a song dedicated to the Aurora, Colo., shooting victims.

Zimmer posted the track, “Aurora,” on his Facebook page on Friday. Zimmer said that he recorded the song in London in the days after the theater shooting last week. All proceeds are being donated to a fund for victims of the shooting that killed 12 people.

The eight-and-a-half minute song is being sold for donations from 10 cents to $2,500.

Zimmer has scored all three films in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
