Henry Jackman Talks Composing The Music For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

You all remember the beautiful score composed from Henry Jackman for one of Marvel's best films Captain America: The Winter Soldier right? Jackman now tells us how he came up with the music and how it was a "real challenge." Hit the jump to check it out!

  Henry Jackman sat down with Comicbook and discussed how and what he did to come up with the music we heard in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, "That was a real challenge -- to come up with melodic and lyrical material that you need to be triumphant and you need to be in keeping with a superhero aesthetic," He then adds, "But placing it in a context where it feels contemporary and doesn't feel like you're harking back to a different era."

He then told what one of his main challenges was while composing the music and also told how he related the character’s personality to the music he was making, "That was an interesting challenge -- also some of the adversaries. I did something really, really radical for the Winter Soldier because when I first looked at the footage, I was like, he's a kind of mechanized, crazy, violent, unstoppable, rampant kind of half-being. I remember thinking to myself I don't want it to be just an orchestral piece of music.”

He then gets more in depth on what he did to make the Winter Soldier’s main theme in the film and how he thought he should do something radical. “I said, ‘I should make a record of the Winter Soldier's theme -- just a six-minute record. I should do something radical and just see what they say.’ It may not stay like that, but at least if I do that I'll come up with a musical identity for the Winter Soldier that's a long way from the expected and the orchestrally sort of generic."
