Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast
16: The Prolific Composer

Brian Tyler.

Recently nominated for Film Composer of the Year by the International Film Music Critics Association, Brian Tyler has composed and conducted for over 50 films. Born and raised in California, Tyler attended UCLA and Harvard before becoming an award-winning film composer. And while he is known for his scores from The Expendables, Rambo, and Frailty, his talents have also helped to bring to life the world of Star Trek through Enterprise.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, we look at this prolific composer, his already impressive body of work, and of course his contributions to Star Trek, both on Enterprise—where he has two scores—and the trailer music for the 2009 Star Trek film.
