Christopher Lennertz scores "Agent Carter"
Posted on June 3, 2015 by Dan Goldwasser
Earlier this year, composer Christopher Lennertz scored Agent Carter, the Marvel/ABC Studios television series. Recently renewed for a second season, Lennertz recorded the score for every episode with a live orchestra, and ScoringSessions.com is excited to bring our readers photos from one of the sessions from the first season!

The session we attended was recorded at the Sony Pictures Scoring Stage, employing a 41-piece orchestra. Where possible, Lennertz infused the score with a post-war big band style befitting the period aspects of the show.

As he was conducting out on the stage, Lennertz relied on his trusty scoring team in the booth for feedback and guidance. On hand were scoring mixer Jeff Vaughn, score producer Alex Bornstein, orchestrators Andrew Kinney, Michael Lloyd and Marcus Sjowall, and ProTools recordist Adam Michalak.
