While the world of pop music has recently seen many top events cancelled
, it's business as usual for many of those composers who create the music for Hollywood blockbusters. In particular, Michael Giacchino is set for a busy few months as he has been given the task of composing the score to the next Jurassic movie.
The Oscar-winning musician has previously found success with composing the scores for some of the biggest movies in recent years. From masterpieces like Star Trek and Planet of the Apes to the Jurassic Park franchise, these movies have widely influenced popular culture, and other industries are seeing advantages too. Their storylines and themes have inspired anything from U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 model building kits and theme park rides like Jurassic World: The Ride to branded casino slots that can be found on sites like casinocountdown.com
. So even if you haven't heard his name before, Michael has already worked one some of the most influential classics out there.
But it looks like his music for the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion could be his biggest challenge yet. What Can We Expect From The Music Of Jurassic World: Dominion
Michael Giacchino will be collaborating with the director Colin Trevorrow to make sure that the music of Jurassic World: Dominion blends perfectly with the live-action. It will be the third time that the pair have worked together having previously worked on movies like 2017's The Book of Henry and the 2015 movie Jurassic World.
Jurassic World featured Giacchinos musical gifts in abundance with orchestral touches that recalled some of the more delicate work of John Williams while adding plenty of unique touches such as complex choir arrangements and haunting piano work.
Above all, Jurassic World's music showed that Giacchino could craft dark and powerful scores
that work perfectly with the themes of the movie franchise. This was something also witnessed when Giacchino returned to create the score to 2017's well-received Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Interestingly, Giacchino has a history with Jurassic Park that extends way back to 1997. This is because the composer created scores for video games based on movies such as The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Warpath: Jurassic Park. The former was notable for being the first video game to be recorded with an original live orchestral score. Other Notable Works From Giacchino
Michael Giacchino has managed to carve a strong reputation for composing scores for some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters over the past two decades. These have included creating the music for Mission: Impossible III, Super 8, Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
His breakthrough came when he collaborated with the director Brad Bird to create the soundtrack of the 2004 animated movie The Incredibles. This saw Giacchino receive Grammy Award nominations for Best Instrumental Composition and Best Score Soundtrack Album.
Giacchinos working relationship with Bird found further success with the score for Ratatouille that earned the composer his first Grammy Award, and he also received an Oscars nomination for his efforts. However, it was Giacchinos work to create the score for 2009's Up movie
that saw him claim his first Academy Award for the Best Original Score. Future Plans For Giacchino
Alongside creating the score for the new Jurassic movie, Michael Giacchino will also have his work cut out in writing the music for The Batman which is due for release in 2021. This will see the composer working alongside the director Matt Reeves.
Giacchino and Reeves have previously worked together on movies such as War For The Planet Of The Apes, Let Me In and Cloverfield. But by getting the job of writing the score for The Batman, Giacchino could be facing his toughest test yet.
Thankfully, the pressure doesn't seem to be affecting the composer just yet, as he has already been spotted enjoying himself by taking on the trolls of Twitter
over the next Batman movie. Interestingly Giacchino has stated that he has already finished writing the main theme, and it's going to be fascinating to see what he has come up with now.
