Christophe Beck's Ant-Man And The Wasp
Marvel Music/Hollywood Records have released Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man And The Wasp digital soundtrack, featuring a score by award-winning composer Christophe Beck (“Frozen,” “Trolls,” “Ant-Man”). Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and The Wasp opened in U.S. theaters on July 6.
Beck’s diversity as a composer is evident in his body of work ranging from comedy (“The Hangover,” “American Pie,” “Hot Tub Time Machine”), documentaries (“Red Army,” “Waiting for Superman,” “We Are Marshall”) to romantic comedies (“American Made,” “The Muppets,” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love”). Beck scored the Golden Globe®- and Oscar®-winning animated film Disney’s “Frozen” (its soundtrack album has sold over 4 million copies and won a Grammy® for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media). Beck’s breakthrough success came via composing music for the TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” for which he earned an Emmy®.
Beck explains that he was excited to create a theme for The Wasp, Ant-Man’s partner-in-crime, as well as incorporate more musical elements than the previous film. “For example, I had previously created a theme for the Ant-Man in the odd meter of seven which means seven, beats per bar. I created a theme for The Wasp that was in the odd meter of five. Many songs and scores are written in the more traditional 4/4 or 3/4 meters. But, when more beats are added to create a complex meter, it brings a dynamic, rhythmic effect to the music, which fits in with the multifaceted character of these two superheroes.”
