ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Composer Christophe Beck re-teams with Marvel Cinematic Universe to score ANT-MAN AND THE WASP – Film & Soundtrack out July 6
Award-winning composer Christophe Beck joinsthe Marvel Cinematic Universe once more to score ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, the sequel to ANT-MAN, which Beck scored in 2015. The film marks the third collaboration between Beck and director Peyton Reed, beginning 18 years ago with the romcom hit BRING IT ON. The new ANT-MAN movie opens in U.S. theaters on July 6, the same day Marvel Music/Hollywood Records are releasing the digital soundtrack of Beck’s score for the film.
In addition to recording with a full orchestra, 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. “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 which was in the odd meter of five. Most 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.”
