What They’re Saying:

  • Matthew Margeson and Dominic Lewis: “The two of us had always wanted to write something together, ever since our additional composer days at Remote Control. The stars aligned on this one, and we were able to really push each other to come up with the best modernized version of a ‘throwback’ orchestral score we could think of. From the onset, we focused heavily on the importance of strong melody and how those melodies could travel through the movie with traditional sweeping orchestration, all the while being cognizant to Mr. Vaughn’s modern, visceral sensibilities. We are both so very proud of this music, and hope listeners are taken on a memorable musical journey, just as we were during this amazing process.”
