Following his Red Bull Symphonic concert, Metro Boomin and composer-songwriter Daniel Pemberton held a live orchestral concert for their Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack contributions. The invitation-only engagement was held at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles this past Friday.
The performance saw the duo deliver orchestral renditions of songs from the animated Sony Pictures film released earlier this year. Mashing a full orchestra with turntables and other electronic instruments the universe of the Spider-Verse film was brought to life.
Speaking to Variety, “Metro’s songs and Daniel’s score create a groundbreaking and vital aural portrait of Miles Morales’ world,” said the film’s screenwriters, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Adding, “Metro’s standout songwriting and production aims not just to be authentic but to elevate the struggles of Miles and his family to something lyrical and lovely. Ultimately, what makes Daniel and Metro’s music so memorable is its emotional intimacy. It draws us into the story. It falls in love, it says goodbye, it stands and fights. We love it because it loves us back.”
