Shadowhunters, you know by now how big of a music fan I am. Needless to say when The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones trailer came out, I just about lost it when I heard Radiohead's song "All I Need" playing in the background. So I fangirled even harder! Not only that, we have a second song I'll get to in just a few:
We just found out yesterday that the TMI soundtrack will be released on August 20th, so the countdown begins! We can only guess what music and artists will be on there, so in the meantime I wanted to share the lyrics with you for "All I Need" (in English and Spanish), so you could get an idea about the complete song.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Radiohead, these guys have been around since 1985, and were heavily played in the indie/grunge college stations with songs like "Creep" and "High and Dry" having some success on the airwaves. A little movie called Clueless picked up their song "Fake Plastic Trees" for the soundtrack, and that's when I became a huge fan gobbling up everything I could find on them.
Composer Jack Trammel's song "Echelon" is the second track featured in the trailer. Take a listen to the complete song:
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Total Recall (2012), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Underworld: Awakening, In Time, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and Soul Caliber V, all have one thing in common: Jack Trammell. Jack's unique music, a balance between aggressive, percussive sound design and dark electronic dubstep has quickly launched him into the forefront of the movie trailer world. He's also most recently had music in trailers for Cloud Atlas, Batman: The Dark Night Rises, Olympus Has Fallen, GI Joe: 3D, Looper and The Amazing Spiderman.
A producer by trade, Jack's BEHEMOTH was the perfect creative outlet to meld his unique production skills with sounds he envisioned would be associated with machines, space exploration and warfare in the distant future.
Upon releasing the album through Position Music, he found his blend of music was instantly slotted into major trailers for films and video games. He's now one of the go-to composers for high budget trailers and his music is heard by millions around the world.
Take a look at the official trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to see how both songs were featured.
