TRAILER GIANT

 

 

When we were first asked for help by  friends to work on a trailer campaign for a big movie several years ago, we had no idea what it was and how creatively challenging and fun it would be. We took everyday sounds and mangled them beyond recognition, setting up rises, hits and atmospheres in hopes of scaring the bejeezus out of millions. 

 

They became an integral tool in our musical endeavors, an extended arm of the modern orchestra, a palette beyond col legno, glissando and clusters. An expansion on what Cage, Messiaen, Boulez, Stockhausen and so many others started during 20th century and what composers like Hans Zimmer, Marco Beltrami and Junkie XL, explore today. 

 

Trailer Giant is a collection of elements that are based on these inspired principles. We ran around recording  whatever was in sight - tape guns, toilets, electricity poles, anything. There were a lot of happy accidents and with time we started recognizing the keepers and cherishing them. Slowly Trailer Companies took to it and started using our material in their projects. Bourne Ultimatum, District 9, Terminator Salvation, Quarantine, Die Hard 4…The listgoes on. 

 

When we decided to let these sounds out into the wild and share them with our colleagues, Spitfire was an obvious choice: we have been fans of their work and their spirit since the first time we used their software and heard Christian and Paul’s compositions. We're proud to present to you our first collaboration with hopefully many more to come.
