SDCC 2017


Interviews from press room of the annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel opens Comic Con, Thursday July 20, 2017


I sat down in a roundtable setting with the composers of Musical Anatomy of A Superhero Panel to chat about their work. Here is a partial transcript

On scoring Black Panther and incorporating African sounds and rythmns

Ludwig Gorransson (Black Panther): And actually yeah I mean If you read the story all of Wakanda it’s basically a fictional country called Africa Central Africa. There was and it sits on a mineral that’s like the the most highly technological mineral in the world. So so the civilization is our highest technical innovation in the world. So there during the conversation they were able to protect themselves. They were never discovered by any other cell. So what would happen with any country in Africa over there and they were never call in. And so the options of music and one Doors are so open you can do it. I mean you can do anything but I have to obviously start with Africa and there’s so many different types of over 1000 languages now and all of them have their own instruments and their own music.

Brian Tyler (Avengers Age Of Ultron): We connect strangely enough. The first scene in Wakanda that I scored in Age Of Ultron. So in the end the mind of the way so yeah it’s interesting because with literally it was you know some of the previews of the vibe that it was going for. We actually kind of landed in a similar spot where you tried to reflect different parts of Africa and use it as percussion but there’s a lot of tuned instruments too that are interesting in there. And but there’s also a mystery about it because of is storyline where this. Idea this material is coming from that’s being mind. That of course it ties in with Captain America and ties in with all sorts of things so it’s it’s a cool thing. And I’m really interested to see where it goes because it was like one you know 10 minute scene and I did it seem like there’s like the whole like this entire movie you know springs from that is similar and there are some characters that are in common as well.

More to come

So how strange is that we’re connected on this because the of what kind I scored many years Age of Ultron. So in the end the mind of the way so yeah it’s interesting because with literally it was you know some of the previews of the vibe that it was going for. We actually kind of landed in a similar spot where you tried to reflect different parts of Africa and use it as percussion but there’s a lot of tuned instruments too that are interesting in there. And but there’s also a mystery about it because of is storyline where this. Idea this material is coming from that’s being mind. That of course it ties in with Captain America and ties in with all sorts of things so it’s it’s a cool thing. And I’m really interested to see where it goes because it was like one you know 10 minute scene and I did it seem like there’s like the whole like this entire movie you know springs from that is similar and there are some characters that are in common as well. When you were down there did you record voices as well or

Speaker1
Did. I didn’t. I spent one week in a studio outside the car and basically had a musician there that hooked me up with it. I was like I want one day with one one day with a bar and sambal and Thriller vocals coming and up the Kushan use and then I kind of just layer them on top. I mean they already know you know if you play their music and if they play separate and they bring that into something really all writers. But I was able to record them on separate so I have control over it control later and then by then the challenge is how do you put all this over that and still make it feel Africain soon as you try to put an orchestra over these rhythms and these kind of this stomp sound in African.
