It seems the trailer will feature a piece from Immediate Music’s album QUANTUM, described by them as…
“… our edgiest and most modern Live Orchestra and Choir release yet… a combination of Epic Action and Drama making a grand debut as our most unique hybrid orchestral album for film trailers and advertising… loaded with layers of ground breaking sound design accompanied by dark, edgy guitar melodies combined with our signature sound of lush cyclical strings, huge swelling brass, and massive booming drums.”
We can’t wait for the debut of the second Hobbit trailer! We can confirm that one of our Epic Dramatic Adventure pieces from Quantum will be featured in the upcoming trailer for Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This classic will follow Bilbo Baggins as he journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves. We are thrilled to be a part of Warner’s marketing campaign for this series.
So while it seems highly unlikely that the trailer will feature a Howard Shore composition, it looks like we can expect some breathtaking music nonetheless.
