Rodrigo Y Gabriela are proud and excited to announce a new musical venture. After months of hints and rumours they can now confirm that one of the summer’s most highly anticipated blockbuster movies, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” will features original music by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer and Rod and Gab.
The score for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 brings together one of the most respected and sought-after composers (an Academy Award winner with a further eight additional Oscar nominations for films such as Gladiator, Inception, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins to name but a few) and the premier guitar playing duo in the world – Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
Speaking on the creative process Zimmer recently said, 'The way we’re working, the three of us are sitting in a room, I play average keyboards and they play brilliant guitars and we’re writing cues together. There’s a force, a ferocity, about their sound.'
You will be able to hear the fruits of their labours when Walt Disney Records release the soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on May 17, 2011.
The movie, once again starring Johnny Depp as captain Jack Sparrow, joined for this outing by Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane, will follow in theaters on May 20, 2011.
Live At The Hollywood Bowl – August
Not content with one groundbreaking project this summer Rodrigo Y Gabriela are also limbering up for what promise to be two of their most unforgettable concerts ever. On Friday August 12 and Saturday August 13 Rodrigo Y Gabriela will perform live at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
In a celebration of the passion and rhythm of the guitar, this extraordinary concert brings the orchestra together with Rodrigo y Gabriela in the illustrious and famous setting of the magnificent Hollywood Bowl – site of some legendary concerts through the years. These two shows will surely be added to that list. Joining Rod and gab for the two concerts will be the blistering Spanish sounds of Buikaand Javier Limón.
