Congratulations and Mazel Tov to showrunners Henry Alonso Myers and Akiva Goldsman, as well as exec producer Alex Kurtzman and the Secret Hideout team for putting out the best live-action Star Trek series in years! (I’m not biased at all!) Thank you so much for trusting me with the score. Can’t wait to start season 2 soon!
The Strange New Worlds score was recorded with 37 musicians at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at WB. I’d like to thank my amazing team, who made this all possible. First off, a big shoutout to my number one, music editor extraordinaire, Matt Decker – I’m so fortunate to have you! Huge thanks to Jeff Russo for the excellent talks and support! Many thanks to my rockstar orchestrator, Jeff Kryka, who was helped by the wonderful queen, Tracie Turnbull, both saved the day on multiple occasions! The score was recorded and mixed by the legendary mixers Dennis Sands and Brian Vibberts, who both pulled miracles and made the orchestra sound much bigger than its size. Many thanks to Natalia Goldstein who handled the ProTools sessions so perfectly, as well as Nick Cazares, Lisa Janacua, and Booker White who prepped the music so wonderfully. A big thank you to Whitney Martin and Gina Zimmitti for contracting the best musicians in town.Thank you to the Warner Brothers team, Jamie Olvera, Tom Hardisty, and Rich Wheeler for running the sessions so smoothly! Sandra Glagla and Khara Huhta, thanks for making sure we’re all safe and sound and not getting Covid! And a huge, huge thank you to the orchestra- I’m grateful for every each and one of you. Thank you for going boldly!
