Academy Award, Grammy and Golden Globe-winning composer Hans Zimmer has produced an epic and sweeping orchestral score for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated superhero movie.
Said the director, “The challenges of creating a Superman score are daunting because Superman is so iconographic. I really feel like what Hans created is perfect. Subtle and stirring, epic and commanding. Honestly, Hans crushed it.”
In addition to his orchestral arrangements Zimmer has assembled a unique “drum orchestra” described by soundtrack co-producer Peter Asher as “some of the best drummers in the world all playing simultaneously in a space designed for a symphony orchestra – using not only rock drum kits but tympani and field drums as well.” The membership of this elite assembly consists of many of today’s top musicians including John JR Robinson, Jason Bonham, Josh Freese, Pharrell Williams, Danny Carey, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos, Jim Keltner, Curt Bisquera, Trevor Lawrence Jr., Matt Chamberlain, Ryeland Allison, Bernie Dresel, Vinnie Colaiuta and Sheila E.
Zimmer also assembled eight of music’s finest pedal steel guitarists who play classical string section parts. This collective, consisting of Chas Smith, Marty Rifkin, Skip Edwards, Boo Bernstein, Peter Frieberger, Rick Schmidt, JD Maness, and John McClung. Described by Asher as, “a uniquely new metallic orchestra” these talented artists add their own distinct and soaring musical stamp to the soundtrack.
