Daniel Pemberton is an Ivor Novello winning and multi-BAFTA nominated composer who has credits include: Danny Boyle's (Steve Jobs), Ridley Scott's (All The Money In The World, The Counsellor), Aaron Sorkin's (Molly’s Game), Darren Aronofsky's (One Strange Rock), Ocean’s 8, Guy Ritchie's (The Man From UNCLE) and, in episode 1 of The Annotator he opened up his score for Ritche’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. Pemberton’s most recent score is for the feature film SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style. Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask. The film features the voices of Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin, Luna Lauren Velez, Zoë Kravitz, John Mulaney, Kimiko Glenn with Nicolas Cage, Kathryn Hahn and Liev Schreiber.
In this episode, Daniel Pemberton unties his musical web of themes; instruments and "Technics" he used for Into the Spider-Verse. He dives deep into his unique utilization of the hip-hop staple of record-scratching, where HE employs Londoner DJ Blakey and his multifaceted scratching abilities in a multi-layered recording process that may also be a first. He also talks about writing this score both in London but also, due to the ongoing collaborative nature of the project, in Los Angeles. There, he found himself in a small bit of space in the Sony Animation studio, from where he would complete the score as the production period of the film wound to a close.
