Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduced us to Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, who discovers the boundless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where anyone can be a hero. The film’s thrilling score, composed by the acclaimed Daniel Pemberton, blends heroism and resilience with an infusion of hip-hop vibes. The soundtrack includes incredible contributions from industry heavyweights like Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Jaden Smith, and Nicki Minaj, making it a true auditory feast.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of my favourite scores I’ve ever written. Utilising a full orchestra, crazy electronics and unbelievable turntable scratching techniques amongst a million other things, it is so technically complex I never thought we’d ever be able to actually reproduce it in a live concert, but somehow, we have”, said Pemberton on the project.
