Composer: Harry Gregson-Williams

Director: John Favreau

Year: 2011

A monster of a film that Harry asked us to provide sound design textures and work on the shape and rhythmic propulsion of some of the cues. A highlight for us was taking recordings of traditional western instruments and mangling them into tense and spooky alien textures. One of the space craft battle sequences in particular was tremendous to work on, seeing wild west riders on horse back pitted against alien craft is to be seen to be believed..

Synopsis : A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys are all that stand in their way.

Stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde.
