Pixar’s Up Soundtrack

Up Soundtrack (Pixar) (Music Score) - Listen To It Here
Michael Giacchino is a busy man. Hot off the impressive Star Trek score, he’s dived into Pixar’s Up soundtrack. This is his third feature for the best-studio-in-the-world, after scoring The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

The Up soundtrack offers quite a bit of standard action music but cleverly blends in classic Glen Milleresque pieces which suit the story perfectly. It’s loaded with 23 cues plus three very odd “sound effect” tracks from Skywalker Sound tacked on to the end. Not sure what to make of that, but I guess it’s pretty neat for the hardcore Pixar fan.

Hype has been huge for the movie. It might be a little too early to be claiming Oscar worthy, but statistically it’s one of the best reviewed Pixar movies to date. The soundtrack may not be up to that level (The Incredibles is still his best), but Giacchino once again proves that between Pixar films and J.J. Abrams projects, he can still keep things fresh.

Here he is talking ‘Up’ –

    I love any movie that has a sense of, and a flair for referencing, film history. By all accounts Pixar have done a great job of that visually and musically in this film.

    The music/movie was fantastic, but give credit when credit is due; Bizet and especially Satie are all over that soundtrack!

    What is the piano theme played throughout the majority of the movie? (eg when Ellie dies it plays really slow)

  • Bryan said

    I agree. I really want to know what the piano song is that Brandon mentioned, and who composed it.

    For some reason Grieg popped into my mind, but that can’t be right.

    In the soundtrack, its called Married Life, but…

    Who is the real composer?
    Thank you!

    I agree, I really like the really slow piano (when ellie dies). i think what you’re looking for is “The Ellie Badge.” It’s like the slow version of “Married Life.” However it isn’t a piano solo, it has the orchestra in the background as well.

    Dear Fx, I think it’s “Habanera” from Georges Bizet’s opera CARMEN. Hope this helps; it bugged me too, not remembering !
