Michael Giacchino scores Star Trek Into Darkness

Posted on June 7, 2013 by Dan Goldwasser

This spring, we were able to attend a scoring session for Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino’s music for Star Trek Into Darkness. The latest score in the prolific collaboration between Giacchino and filmmaker J.J. Abrams featured a 104-piece orchestra and 41-person choir. The film has grossed over $330 million worldwide since its release on May 16, 2013, and we’re thrilled to bring our readers photos from the scoring session!
