9 Soundtrack

9 is the Tim Burton-produced feature version of the Oscar-nominated short film. It tells the story of an apocalyptic future where burlap sack dolls hold the last essence of humanity and must stay ahead of giant mechanical creatures seeking to destroy them. The 9 movie soundtrack is credited to Danny Elfman and Deborah Lurie, but while Elfman created the themes (see ‘Burial’ and ‘Winged Beast’) it’s young composer Lurie who’s responsible for everything else. 9 is her chance to shine, after ten years behind the scenes providing additional music for the likes of Spider-Man 3 and Wanted, heading up smaller films, and orchestrating /arranging for composing giants John Ottman, Mark Snow and Elfman.

The 9 soundtrack is primarily an action score, and Lurie brings the large-scale orchestral sound of Spider-Man and Wanted to an animated movie, somewhere it’s not typically found. ‘Winged Beast’ and ‘Slaying the Beast’ in particular are epic battle themes, using warring choirs for battle cries. In places there’s a noticeable trace of Elfman’s Terminator Salvation score, not surprising perhaps as 9 is set after mankind has lost a war with the machines, and Elfman was probably humming it when he came over to check how things were going.

The final track on the album is the heavy rock song ‘Welcome Home’ by Coheed and Cambria, as featured in the trailers. The New York prog-rock band is no stranger to the film’s genre, since their albums are concept albums, gradually revealing a science fiction storyline called The Amory Wars.

    Um, Transformers is ridiculous, childish crap.
    Be thankful Coheed & Cambria’s epic work was chosen/allowed for a really good film.

    Transformers is the best! Its one of the most popular things out there! Thats also your opinion, but you dont have to say that, and I agree though I dont think Coheed and Cambria would have been good for TF
