First sample from WWZ is now available at Kraft-Engel Management's website!
http://www.kraft-engel.com/clients/marco-beltrami/


Beltrami can write a melody. Sounds very promising.



The World War Z music is very good.

Director Marc Forster( "Quantum of Solace" ) appears to be totally wrong for this type of movie, or any kind of movie, indicative of his past efforts. Also the film had loads of reshoots which does not bode well for "....Z", but time will tell.

I cannot believe how many times I have listened to the track from Beltrami's Agent's website over the past few days. It is a very powerful and beautiful cue.

I think the World War Z soundtrack is going to be one of Marco's strongest to date!

Read six posts above yours.

I wonder if there are long stretches of the film unscored?

I guess we have become so accustomed to long releases (expanded) that the shorter album form of previous years has become a suprise (that might frustrate some).

While I appreciate the expanded re-issues of scores because I was disappointed before by tracks left out (which i wanted to have) I´m warming towards album presentations more and more. Sometimes it´s really just underscore that is left out because it distracts from the listening experience.

And really, in this case, 44 minutes of score don´t seem to be insufficient in order to represent the composer´s ideas.

This interview was published earlier in the year; it was recorded at du Festival Musique et Cinéma d'Audi:

Marco starts talking about World War Z at 8:36. It sounds like he included some really innovative sounds in this score.

Does anyone know how Marco came to score World War Z?

I know that he did not have any history with Plan B (Brad Pitt's production company) before this, so I was curious if there was a connection with Beltrami and anyone else in the creative team.

Less than a month away!

Someone told me (And this could be wrong) that there is a 40 minute section of the film that has no score in it) this could also be a case of good spotting and holding the music back until it matters to have it there as a opposed to a wall to wall approach.

Less is more...

I hope it's true. I prefer there's not too much music, instead of having too much music, and with lots of unreleased cues.

The question is how much was actually composed and recorded for the movie...
If I remember correctly with about 1500 separate tracks recorded for the mixing, this one set the new record.




btw, if anyone cares, the score will be also released on LP.

1500???

Still, I believe the movie could turn out pretty well, despite its well-documented troubles. And Beltrami is definitely one of the great "new" composers.

It is such a fundamentally different way to think about putting music to film than, say, how Zimmer & Friends approach things.

A refreshing change.

All those CGI zombies swarming looks pretty ludicrous to YOR.

But another Beltrami score is welcome.

For those interested, WWZ will also be released on vinyl, which is presumably why the release is so short(ish).

I am with you on this one YOR.

I saw the ad twice this weekend and it cements my lack of interest in this film. The whole apocalypse genre in general is really tired. The other one coming out with Will Smith and his son also looks really tired and been there done that. And we just had Oblivion with Tom Cruise, there is not really that much of an audience for such downer material. Hollywood gets stuck in these trends that are just awful, are we out of the teen vampire / witch angsty thing yet? Geez.

Other than that, yeah, Beltrami has a Goldsmith young-ling, is always interesting
