Brian Tyler scoring Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

Based on the bestselling novel by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians was one of the best romantic comedy films of 2018. The film follows Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she travels to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick Young to attend his best friend’s wedding and discovers Nick comes from an immensely wealthy family. The score for this film was composed by Brian Tyler to accompany a soundtrack full of songs that mostly speak about money (which is a major theme of the movie).

This behind-the-scenes video shows Brian Tyler in the midst of a scoring session for the film. As I’ve said many times, it’s always fun to watch the composer at work, and Tyler is a particular favorite to watch, as you can always tell he’s completely into his work. The pieces covered in this video are “Text Ting Swing” and “Love Theme from Crazy Rich Asians.” I enjoyed listening to both of them, they each feature Brian Tyler’s signature flair and actually made me want to listen to more of the soundtrack.

I hope you enjoyed this brief, behind-the-scenes look at the scoring of Crazy Rich Asians. Let me know what you think about it in the comments below and have a great day!
