The podcast where composers share thoughts and stories about their original scores. In every episode, a composer tells the creation story of their music used in some of today's top film, television and video game soundtracks.


Andrew Lockington - Rampage

Canadian-born composer, Andrew Lockington has composed original scores for feature films such as: ‘SAN ANDREAS’, the Golden Globe nominated “FRANKIE AND ALICE” starring Halle Berry,“PERCY JACKSON SEA OF MONSTERS”, “JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH”, and “CITY OF EMBER”, “THE SPACE BETWEEN US” and the Netflix series “FRONTIER”

He recently scored the 2018, American, sci-fi monster film, RAMPAGE - directed by Brad Peyton. The film is loosely based on the video game series of the same name by Midway Games. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It follows a primatologist named Davis Okoye who must team up with George, an albino gorilla who turns into a raging creature of enormous size as a result of a rogue experiment, to stop two other mutated animals from destroying Chicago. It is the third collaboration between Peyton and Johnson, following Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) and San Andreas (2015).

In this episode, Andrew lockington opens up his score for RAMPAGE, sharing with us how he looked to nature to inform his approach, specifically studying gorillas and other apes and the sounds they make. He also studied African music and choir which eventually lead him to employing the African Childrens Choir and, finally, he discusses how he employed electronic elements into his score to connect the film to its video game roots.
