Couldn't find a thread on this score in the search engine. So apologies if there's one that already exists.

The movie is about to be released in US theaters in three weeks, but there hasn't been any mention if there'll be a score release. Haven't seen any listings for it on Amazon, etc. Though there's going to be an inspired by/song album. The score will most be released digitally if at all.

Childish Gambino Producer Ludwig Göransson Talks Black Panther Musical Score
http://thesource.com/2018/01/24/childish-gambino-producer-ludwig-goransson-talks-black-panther-musical-score/

If you haven’t heard name Ludwig Göransson before, odds are you’ve heard his music.

Ever since the Swedish implant hooked up with Donald Glover on the set of of NBC’s hit sitcom Community, they have created amazing music that has taken them from TV soundlot to the Grammy doorstep. As other half of the multi-Grammy nominated act, “Childish Gambino,” the group can now be mentioned comfortably in the same sentence as Jay-Z, as both are up for the coveted Album of the Year award. However, this is just a stepping stone for young producer. After scoring music for shows like Community and blockbuster boxing movies like Creed, his next ambitious undertaking will be Marvel’s highly anticipated, Black Panther adaptation set to premiere in February 2018.

Some fans felt Göransson was snubbed for his work on the Creed soundtrack in much the same way fans felt director Ryan Coogler was snubbed for his work on the film. With the all of the anticipation for Black Panther, the dynamic duo will have a second chance for redemption this time around. Göransson took a very similar approach when he started the research process for scoring the upcoming flick. For Creed, he went to a local boxing gym and recorded the background sound and noises that would become melded into the soundtrack and score.

To tackle Black panther, he had to go deeper so he traveled to Senegal and South Africa to create the framework for the sound of the upcoming film. For Ludwig Göransson it was as special task creating the music that would fit the fictional country of Wakanda. As many Marvel fans know, what makes Wakanda unique is that in the Marvel Comic universe it is the most technologically advanced country and civilization on the planet, and it’s king T’Challa has the genius IQ enough to head to head with geniuses such as Tony Stark aka Iron Man.

The other part to note is that it was a country that was never colonized by European powers, so Göransson had to create music that represented them accurately. Yet it is worth noting while recording and meeting different African musicians he also made respect the importance of African music. Since most sounds, songs, and drum rhythms all their own context thought has to be used on how to use them in the score appropriately.

With the help of a 150 piece orchestra the Childish Gambino producer set upon the awesome task of creating a rich undertone to support the grand scale of the film.



Black Panther premiere’s in America February 16th, 2018.

Thanks. I'll just post my comment from here over into that thread then.

Let's try to avoid what happened with the previous thread.

Having gone through the score there are not only touches of Goldsmith's Ghost in the Darkness (Track 2) there's also a similarity between the opening of Track 3 and the opening of Fenton's Cry Freedom (Göransson uses a male rather than a female vocal). Male vocals seem to be similar to Doyle's Rise of the Planet of the... in Track 6.

While I enjoyed the orchestral moments, something about them was very Matrix-y to me...

There was also a semi-Goldsmith moment with the echoing trumpets as they mention the villan’s past military endeavors.

I though the score worked really well in the film.

I dig the percussive soundscape/base of this score. Very infectious. Can't keep quiet while listening smile
Will see the movie later today.

Fantastic score. The more I listen to it the more I love it.

I'd love to listen to it but since I would have to buy it as mp3 I'm hesitating. No need to start a debate about the mp3 only topic though. Just a question to those of you who are experienced enough to gauge it: Is there a chance of there being a physical release anytime soon? (CD, not Vinyl).

Thanks!

Qobuz hs it on lossless FLAC, if that's an option where you live.

To makro. In the recent past, a big, high profile successfull film would eventually get some form of CD release.
But since Guardians of the Galaxy 2 opted out of a physical score release, despite Intrada trying to sort something out, I would say this will probably become the new norm.
So, no ( but I'd love to be proven wrong).

Thx Kev,

guess I'll have to go for the download then although I will probably forget that I owe it again like with so many other scores I bought as mp3 and eventually forgot because I don't have a physical reminder of them.

A shame especially since the pop-songs apparently got a physical release. Shouldn't it be the other way round? 14 year old crack addicts or whoever listens to this sort of thing (being cynical here, love myself some good hiphop track) won't buy CDs anyway but old farts like us would.

No. The Kendrick Lamar album will move way more units than the score release, so it makes sense for that album to be given priority for a physical release and the score album to take a backseat to it.

I didn't want to give up on the score after listening to one long cue, so I samples some more (including Busan Car Chase and Killmonger).

I like the idea of using native percussion instruments give the score a special flavor. I don't like the electronics, at all; some just piss me off (I'm turning into Richard Band ;-).

I can't say it's a bad score, but I just couldn't connect with it. If this is, as some said, one of the best Marvel scores, Marvel still has a ways to go on my opinion.

All I got as a sample is the amazon 30 sec previews but already it reminds me so much of creed that I really want to get it.

Assuming you are in the US, you can get the lossless Flac version from http://us.7digital.com. Price is $13.99, so not much more than Amazon/iTunes.

Also, the running time of the album is 95:20, so any CD release would have to be 2 discs.

maybe I SHOULD get the download. I hate 2-CD sets since I never know which CD to listen to and I don't want to switch CDs during listening. 1 score has to be 1 CD. I NEVER listen to BOTH CDs of my Tron Legacy or Interstellar stupid illuminated starlight edition, just one of them on repeat because I'm distracted/in the car/whatever so I'm really missing out on the other half.

The score is nothing short of amazing. Anyone should get it.

Also, this video of Göransson talking about how he created certain tracks is fantastic as well.
