FULL SCENES

Known as The Thanator Chase, this was the first Avatar scene I’ve rescored. The challenge was to make an action/chase scene that would slightly highlight some key points.

Scene 1: Run Definitely Run
Scene 2: Beasts Surrounding

With predominance of sound design, this part of the movie represented a challenge for me because, according to my read, the scene required a musical writing that is unusual to me. The experience was very rewarding.

Delicate and gentle, this “nature musical theme” was played for the first time in the movie.

I payed particular attention to the growth of the scene which culminates in Jay being covered by the seeds while the new heroic Avatar theme also appears, for the first time, at the end.

Scene 3: The Seeds of the Sacred Tree
Scene 4: Hunting Dragon

I felt that more than any other scene that I have rescored, Hunting Dragon was the most tribal one which required a percussive lead.

Scene 5: The First Flight

The First Flight scene is a rare moment in film music where the composer has an opportunity to fully express his/her main theme and its variations.

After Jay’s struggle to tame the dragon, I wanted the music sound bold and heroic.

Scene 6: The Alien Attack (part one)

The Alien Attack represents one of the most dramatic scenes of the movie. I tried to make the music follow closely this high drama by pushing the orchestra to its limit in range and expression.
