[UPDATE: Now with 4 clips + Soundtrack now available for pre-order]

UPDATE 2 : Giacchino Tweets Star Trek Into Darkness music clips
On Wednesday April 2nd composer Michael Giacchino did some live tweeting from the final day of recording the score for Star Trek Into Darkness. In all he tweeted out four different clips via Telly. TrekMovie has compiled the four clips into a single YouTube video (below).
While the music bears a strong similarity to the end credits for the 2009 Star Trek movie, there are subtle differences and TrekMovie has confirmed this is from Giacchinio’s score for Star Trek Into Darkness It appears that Giacchino is capping off the new movie in much the same way he did the last one, including the touches of Alexander Courage’s original Star Trek theme.
After TrekMovie put up our first article, the composer also went on the record about the clips, via a tweet to @TrekMovie…
@trekmovie – yes folks – that was live tweeted – just finished recording today. What I tweeted was from the end credits.
