Jeff Russo is the official composer for CBS’s new Star Trek, however he wasn’t the one one within the operating. At one level, Star Trek VI composer Cliff Eidelman was in consideration, and although it didn’t work out, he stored working.
As revealed in a Fb Stay chat earlier this week, and reported by Trek Film, Eidelman, who composed the rating for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Nation, was at one level final yr in talks with Discovery co-creator Bryan Fuller to work on the present.
“After I got here in [Bryan] described what they had been doing and he was so eager about me presumably scoring this collection, he requested me if I might write a theme,” Eidelman stated. In keeping with Eidelman, he initially linked with Fuller on the advice of Nicholas Meyer, Star Trek VI’s director, and a consulting producer on Discovery. So Eidelman wrote a theme, after which one other piece, for Fuller’s consideration.
However when Fuller stepped down as showrunner, the deal fell aside. “New individuals got here in and so they went in a special path,” Eidelman defined. “The rationale I used to be there was due to Bryan Fuller, and when he left I form of went with him and wasn’t stored on. I used to be not signed on. I used to be by no means employed or engaged formally. I used to be simply inspired.”
However regardless that his official work ended, Eidelman was enchanted with what he’d made, so he added to the 2 items he’d already written and developed a full EP known as Into the Unknown, which you’ll be able to hearken to now on Spotify (hyperlink under). The tracks are an intriguing glimpse into an alternate universe the place Fuller full imaginative and prescient for Star Trek got here to fruition. A pity it didn’t work out.[Trek Movie]
