Michael Giacchino Tweets Images & Videos From Star Trek Into Darkness Scoring Sessions

Michael Giacchino is now recording the score for Star Trek Into Darkness. While some music was scored and recorded late last year for the IMAX preview, it actually wasn’t until last Friday that the Oscar-winning composer finished writing the full score for the film. The music is being performed by The Hollywood Studio Symphony who have done the scores for dozens of major films including JJ Abrams 2009 Star Trek. They also preformed some pre Giacchino Trek films including Jerry Goldsmith’s scores for Nemesis and First Contact.

Giacchino has also been sharing some videos and images that he has been tweeting from the scoring studio.

Giacchino’s score for Star Trek Into Darkness is expected to be released by Varese Sarabande, just like with 2009’s Star Trek. The soundtrack is not yet available for pre-order.
