Posted on December 1, 2008 by Dan Goldwasser

Trevor Rabin recently reunited with director Renny Harlin to compose the music for 12 Rounds, from the new WWE Films action movie starring John Cena. Scoring took place at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Brothers, with a 36-piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony.

Conducted and orchestrated by Gordon Goodwin, the score features tense electronics and has a contemporary vibe that was accentuated by the live strings and brass.

In the booth, Rabin would give feedback to Goodwin, and was assisted by arranger Paul Linford. Scoring mixer Steve Kempster made sure all of the various elements were blended nicely, and ProTools recordist Erik Swanson and music editor Robbie Boyd were also on hand to lend support.
