There’s a new interview with music composer, Brian Tyler, on MusicFromTheMovies.com. It’s mostly about the psychological horror film Bug but there’s a couple of things about AvP2 right at the end:
MFTM: You’re now working on Alien vs. Predator 2. What are your impressions of the kind of music needed for AVP2?
Brian Tyler: It is going to be wild wild crazy wild! I really want to bring the world of Alien and Predator together musically. There will be references to the tradition of those classic scores. The music of the Predator is more organized and methodical while the Alien music is certainly extreme and frighteningly primal. The score will be purely orchestral.
MFTM: Will you be using actual musical motifs from Alien and Predator or using music in the style of those films?
Brian Tyler: There will be some homage’s to the music of the earlier films in there. But mostly it will be conceptually bringing the two musical worlds together. One thing I can say for sure, it is going to be big!
Thanks to John Chambers for the news.
