Marvel’s Runaways comes out in two weeks, so it’s time for some more promo ahead of the new show. First we have an interview with composer Siddhartha Khosla in Variety. Khosla talks about how he composed some non-orchestral music based on the pilot script.
Reflecting on the sound of electronic bands that inspired him as a teen, such as Depeche Mode and the Cure, Khosla selected vintage synths, including the Roland Juno-60, the Oberheim DX and the 808 kick drum. … “It was nice to break away from what is commonly heard in that universe,” Khosla says. “It’s extremely synth-heavy but also very simple.”
Khosla has also worked on the music for the comedy Me, Myself, and I and brought a sense of “spiritualism” to the music there as well. For Runaways it was about layering and making sure that there are different themes for The Pride and for the Runaways themselves.
Khosla layered the electronic sounds, weaving an ethereal tapestry that emphasizes the characters’ complex emotions. The only organic elements used are vocals, which are run through a vocoder before being introduced to the mix. To further explore the action sequences, Khosla developed several themes highlighting the intensity of The Pride and the drama of the teen rebellion.
Marvel and Hulu also shared a set of character posters on Facebook detailing each of the powers of the kids in the show. They also give us close up looks at the Staff of One and the Fistigons.
Summary: After discovering their parents are super-villains in disguise, a group of teenagers band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents’ actions and to discover the secrets of their origins.
Marvel’s Runaways, created by Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, stars Gregg Sulkin, Ariela Barer, Lyrica Okano, Allegra Acosta, Virginia Gardner, and Rhenzy Feliz. It will stream to Hulu starting November 21st.
