After many attempts, I finally managed to cobble together some rambling thoughts on how John Williams’ Superman soundtrack compared to Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel soundtrack. Both are great works, worthy of acclaim in their own ways.
I’ve gotten pretty good feedback on these features in the past, but I always feel like my grasp of music theory is too rudimentary to deliver a solid explanation of what these soundtracks are doing. Still, I don’t know of anyone else that tries to explore and interpret film music in this way, using the media that I use. If you know them, please point them out! I’d love to get inspired and educated.
