“Alien vs. Predator: Requiem” scoring session (2007)

It seemed like genius when Hollywood conceived the idea to do a crossover between the Alien and Predator franchises. Think about it: two “ultimate” alien species meeting each other, it’s potential movie GOLD! And to be fair, the first Alien vs. Predator did reasonably well, well enough for a sequel to be commissioned at any rate. Unfortunately, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem was….not so good (to put it politely). In fact, one of the few things praised about the film was Brian Tyler’s score (one of his earlier works).

If you haven’t seen the film, you’re not missing much. It basically picks up about five minutes after the first Alien vs. Predator film ends, with a hybrid Alien/Predator (known as a Predalien) bursting from a slain Predator, damaging their spaceship and sending it hurtling back to Earth. It sounds like it should be a great story (but trust me, it isn’t). Despite the film’s many, MANY flaws, Brian Tyler’s score does what it can to add some suspense to the story, and in the recording session footage that I found, you can hear the complexity that was woven into the material by the composer. I hope you enjoy listening to an example of Brian Tyler’s earlier work (he’d only been working on film scores for 10 years at this stage) and I apologize again for the blurry video quality.
