Let's investigate some highlights from film scores released in 2013. Are there particular trends? Yes, it seems so. Lots of scores are musically simple and texturally complex. More and more scores are not traditionally orchestral. And moods are generally established with wafting waves of sound.
In this second of two parts, David Garland presents music released during the past year from science fiction and adventure films such as "Gravity," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "Ender's Game," "Man of Steel," "Europa Report," and several others. Part one in this series, featuring music from Indies and dramas, aired on December 14, 2013.
