Listen To The Main Score For READY PLAYER ONE From BACK TO THE FUTURE Composer Alan Silvestri
Warner Bros. wanted to give fans a taste of the music from Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, so they released the main title theme for the film. This theme was composed by Alan Silvestri, who also wrote the iconic theme for Back To The Future.
I really enjoyed the musical score of Ready Player One and Alan Silvestri brought a fresh and soaring sound that worked perfectly for this film that pays tribute to the history of geeky pop culture.
While talking to Entertainment Weekly, Silvestri expressed how excited he was that Spielberg invited him to come on this journey of epic geek culture.
"An invitation to travel arrived just about a year ago, not just to a place, but to a time. Actually, to a number of times — primarily the year 2045, along with a few stops in the ’80s. A rather detailed map had been drawn by Ernest Cline and the Captain of the voyage, none other than Mr. Spielberg himself. What could one possibly do or say? Pencil in hand, one firmly fastens one’s seatbelt, says ‘Sir, Yes, Sir,’ and prepares for the trip of a lifetime."
The score seems to have a classic and familiar feel to it, but it's completely unique. In fact, Spielberg said:
"While all sorts of culturally iconic references populate Ready Player One, the score that Alan Silvestri composed is completely and intoxicatingly original. It’s bound together by multiple themes that identify plot and character and is infused by such percussive adrenaline and soaring strings that Alan has made Ready Player One appear to fly."
