Some awesome behind the scenes footage for Man of Steel has been released. Composer Hans Zimmer managed to get a dozen of some of the world’s most renowned percussionists and musicians, and formed the most epic of drum circles for the soundtrack.
Zimmer managed to round up Matt Chamberlain, Sheila E, Josh Freese (of Devo and NIN), Jason Bonham, Pharrell Williams (whose previous soundtrack experience most recently includes Despicable Me 2, as well as the original Despicable Me) and Trevor Lawrence Jr to name just a few. Zimmer convinced them to play together, simultaneously. It’s quite the feat to watch in the video, even if you’re not a big drum fan.
Zimmer explains the effect he’s going for in the beginning of the video, and it makes perfect sense. The drummers achieve the perfect backdrop for the more dramatic moments of the film.
