Composing for Heroes: Continuity and Emotions — The Beat | Soundtrack |

San Diego convention center, The 2nd Annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero: Bringing a Comic Book to Life returned. On hand this year was an impressive panel of composers: Tyler Bates, Christophe Beck, Blake Neely, John Ottoman, and Brian Tyler. You might recognize some of their work, like Watchmen, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Iron Man 3, and the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Each one of these men have had a hand in crafting fantastic scores for hit media, and are well versed in using music to sell a story.
