		The titles 'She-Hulk' and 'The house of the dragon' are added to the great canon of television

Fantasy movies and television have been the basis for some of the most memorable scores in history, and even more so with the release of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” this week and “House of the Dragon” on Sunday.

Disney + and HBO are, for the most part, keeping the music a secret until the premiere of the series, but they have a close eye on both from the composers themselves.

“I think every composer, at some point, wants to write that big action-adventure score and go to work with an orchestra,” says Amie Doherty, composer of “She-Hulk,” the Marvel series with Tatiana Maslany as a. a lawyer who can be a super green skin as well.

Doherty, the Irish composer who recently scored the animated film “Spirit Untamed” and has many episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” and “The Umbrella Academy,” has been secretly working on “She-Hulk” for the past year. . .

The challenge, he says, is to find a central theme that he can apply to both parts of the character, as well as creating music for the “really quirky characters” that are his clients. “It’s great to tap into that established Marvel sound while trying to bring something new and fresh and fun.”

Doherty says he’s not playing comedy: “He doesn’t need any help from the music, comically. It’s all on the screen; the music doesn’t support him.” It is being performed by a 65-piece orchestra in Vienna, although he also describes the score as “hybrid” for its many synth and band elements “to give it that modern feel”.

Ramin Djawadi, the seven nominated Emmy nominee who won two of the statues for his music from “Game of Thrones,” re-score “House of the Dragon,” set prequel 200 years before and mainly about The House of Dragons. .

“Sonically, it will be like ‘Game of Thrones,'” declares Djawadi, “I wanted to create a continuation, an extension, of the music,” he says, and as before, he is using Prague orchestra between 32 and 50 years old. pieces of his recordings. The overall sound will be a little different, since you’re adding woodwinds to the strings and brass that dominated during “Game of Thrones.”

Executive producer Miguel Sapochnik, who directed some of the most memorable episodes of “Game of Thrones,” including “The Long Night,” asked the composer even before filming began for continuity of mood and ensure musical ideas. “When I was sent the first episode, I immediately felt at home in that world again,” says Djawadi.

The question of starting fresh with new music or sticking with the original “Game of Thrones” score was “definitely a big discussion,” he says. “We are in Westeros. There are familiar places. Yes, we have all the new characters, but we wanted to keep the DNA. Some themes that we know from the original will appear, but there will be many new ones . themes, new content.”
