EDITORS’ NOTES

Composer Brian Tyler is matter of fact: “The Ninja Turtles music is straight-up fantasy film/classic sci-fi music—Raiders of the Lost Ark or Star Wars—with that John Williams kind of sound, which I love doing. Director Jonathan Liebesman and I grew up watching those films, which is the vibe we wanted to evoke. It’s actually closer to the original Superman style that John Williams used.” Tyler says those melodic traditions work for a reason. “Themes can really anchor the film,” he explains. “I use the term loosely, because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme has three different themes inside it. It starts off on the album in a way that feels like you’re hearing the origin to the story, where the music tells you about the characters’ struggles and the darkness they face with Shredder. Then that goes into a more heroic piece that you could call the ‘adventure’ theme, which has kind of a perilous old-school feel that’s a throwback to the old Saturday-morning serials, done with an orchestra and a live choir.”

Oh yeah!!

StompyWomper,

This score is FANTASTIC!!! What a great movie! And an epic soundtrack to boot!

Sounds very traditional

BruceBanner98,

That score is great, mainly because it has the sound of a Marvel score. I know it's because it's from the same guy that score Iron-Man 3 & Thor: the Dark World, but still.

About Brian Tyler

An award-winning songwriter, conductor, producer, and composer of an impressive array of film, television, and video game scores, California native Brian Tyler attended UCLA and Harvard before embarking on a successful career in music. A self-taught musician who proficient on myriad instruments including drums, piano, guitar, bass, cello, percussion, synthesizer, charango, and bouzouki, Tyler began scoring films shortly after graduation from Harvard. His early scores for films like Bartender and Six String Samurai helped him land his first big break with the 2001 Bill Paxton-directed thriller Frailty. Since then he has become one of the most in-demand film composers in the business, racking up accolades for his work on movies like The Hunted, Constantine, Rambo, Fast & Furious, Iron Man 3, Now You See Me, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Truth, Furious 7, the Disappointments Room, and XXX: Return of Xander Cage. He has also provided music for popular video games such as Need for Speed: The Run, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Far Cry 3, and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, as well as for television programs like Transformers: Prime, Terra Nova, and Sleepy Hollow. In 2014, Tyler co-wrote and produced the hit song "Shell Shocked" with Wiz Kalifah, Kill the Noise, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, and Moxie, which he released under the pseudonym Madsonik. ~ James Christopher Monger
