EXCLUSIVE: Interview with composer Jack Trammell on 'Mortal Instruments' trailer

There are a few components of a great movie trailer: quick, catchy one-liners, fast paced, stunning imagery and a track that sets the mood so that viewers will be on the edge of their seat waiting to spend their dough for movie tickets.
With the new Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, we have all those aspects and so much more.

With the release of the new trailer and the news from Constantin and Republic records that the official movie soundtrack will drop August 20th, Shadowhunter fans are eager to find out anything they can on the music played in this full theatrical trailer. For that, I go to the source: Jack Trammell, composer/producer of the song "Echelon", one of the two songs featured in the TMI trailer.

"I'm honored to be a part of the project," Trammell said about the TMI trailer. "The studio loved 'Echelon' for the backend of the trailer and had me make it even more exciting for the usage. TMI will surely be a wonderful film. I'm sure 'Echelon', or maybe some of my other music, will be used in promo spots for the film. Fingers crossed."

Trammell has been a musician for about 20 years now. He owns Fat Cat Recording Studio in Sacramento, and does a ton of composing for many projects in LA. "Such a wonderful career. I'm so thankful! There are some more Big Projects I'm working on coming up this Spring/Summer, super secret right now."

Trammell will be finishing his third album in a few months. His first two albums Pillars of Creation and Behemoth are available for listening on his site. Here's the full version of "Echelon", featured on Pillars of Creation, so you can check it out!

Trammell's music has been featured in some top film trailers: Cloud Atlas, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Resident Evil: Retribution, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, Oblivion, Olympus Has Fallen, GI Joe 3D, Looper, In Time, Underworld: Awakening, Die Hard 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray, and the list goes on and on! It's clear that his musical depth is a great asset to the TMI world.

You can check out his website, for more samples of his work.
