Operation Kino released this interview with the Track Team today. They talk about Legend of Korra, of course, as well as A:TLA, Kung Fu Panda, and some other projects. They also released a few tracks from the soundtrack of LOK. The podcast is available for download at the bottom of that page, as well as on iTunes.

  • First up, at about 48:30, there is a piece by a string ensemble a an erhu. The instrumentation and melodies remind me of 50's film scores, but with a slight Asian twist.
  • At 54:50, a very ominous-sounding bit of music reminiscent of the A:TLA finale. The use of dissonance is pretty effective, if you ask me. Could this possibly be Amon's theme? EDIT: It's called "Amon in the Shadows", so pretty much confirmed.
  • Third, at about 58:20 there is is a pretty epic piece with taiko drums and a driving melody. Seems like a fight scene to me. EDIT: It's called "The Rally."
  • At 1:03:30, a rag. It's wildly different from what we're used to hearing from these guys, but it's quite interesting to hear their range.
  • An absolutely beautiful piece performed by a string sextet begins at 1:06:20. It brought me to tears.
  • 1:09:50 is the end credits music with what sounds like erhu and kalimba. This, along with the previous piece, was previously leaked.

Some news/infodump:

  • The Track Team is using elements of the music of the finale in the soundtrack for Korra.
  • Live musicians, including a Dixieland band, a string sextet, and a Chinese instrumentalist, feature prominently in the soundtrack. There will be more focus on solos instead of full orchestrations.
  • The LOK soundtrack is more mature and complex than that of TLA.
  • The fifth and sixth episodes feature "lots of bending." I see some Pro Bending here.
  • There will be fewer character themes, but more themes based on situations.
I would write about the Korra Nation prize tracks too, but just hit up the video below. Sounds pretty epic
EDIT: I was bored, so I strung the podcast tracks together here.

So, what do you guys think?

Oh, and click that http://sot.ag/NDA5NzM3/ pretty please?
