Ant-man and the Wasp is out! Another unique action score from Christophe Beck for which I served as lead orchestrator and conductor. We recorded the score over a 6 week period at Abbey Road Studio One.
While it has become the norm to throw everything at action scores, multiple passes with the orchestra, huge percussion and relentless riffs, Chris’ score builds on the unique palette he set up for the first Ant-man movie, with even more pizzicato! While we did record some of the brass and percussion separately for balance reasons, there were no overdubs at all. The score could be played by a normal orchestra, albeit one with 12 cellos, 8 horns, 6 trombones and a cimbasso!
