After analysing the soundtracks for some big superhero movies I had to find a way to make the soundtrack for 2020 have the same impact. The realisation I came to was that my soundtrack needed certain elements to give the right mood and to make the world seem plausible.

Here is a shopping list to take to your composer
- Busy string section
- Massive drums
- Synths that pan rhythmically
- Big build up
Have a listen! BTW Komplete 9 Ultimate is amazing!
