The Track Team

The Track Team works in their studio.

The Track Team is a duo made up of Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn. Together, they composed the music of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.[1]

History

Founded in 2004, the Track Team is a "purveyor of artistically and technologically innovative audio in the realms of television, film, commercials and video games".[1]

At the time the Track Team was beginning its commercial career, Benjamin Wynn was a roommate of Avatar co-creator Bryan Konietzko, so they became a logical choice to be in charge of the soundtrack for the series. The creators approached the Track Team with the request to write the music of Avatar, using a diverse group of instruments. Complying with this wish, the group of musicians used for the score consists of western orchestra blended with Chinese percussion, a mandolin, occasionally a Chinese flute, many other Chinese instruments, and sometimes a choir.[2]

There were very few times when a cue was completely rejected by the creators; Zuckerman stated in an interview that he and Wynn enjoyed a lot of creative freedom.[3] The uncommon understanding is due to the fact that Bryan Konietzko is a composer himself.

Together, the duo produced the music for the critically acclaimed series Avatar: The Last Airbender, and their work on the show earned them a 2008 Peabody Award. Their most recent work is the The Legend of Korra soundtrack, which has been produced alongside sound designer Steven Tushar and sound effects editor Christopher Nuno.
