Creating the Score for Star Trek

By David Goe

     

    

Spock may have mastered his emotions but it's a lot more difficult for us. If you've seen the new "Star Trek" movie you know that tensions run high throughout the film, and a big part of the emotional atmosphere is the musical score. Part of what makes the rebooted Star Trek movies so cool are the beeps and boops from the captains deck, the "beam me up Scotty!" transporters, and the "set phasers to stun" laser shots. Couple those space sounds with a full orchestra and  you've got a dazzling soundscape to match the stunning visuals from "Star Trek Into Darkness."

Check out this interview with the mastermind behind the film's score, music conductor and orchestrator Tim Simonec. Simonec works directly with director J.J. Abrams to create the tension filled score. This interview gives you a sense of what it's like to match music to the film footage and just how labor intensive movie making is. Pretty amazing stuff here.
