Official Press Release
La-La Land Records will release the Green Lantern: The Animated Series Original Soundtrack. The album features original music composed by Frederik Wiedmann (Hostel: Part III, The Hills Run Red), for which he earned his first Annie Award nomination.
Based upon the DC Comics super hero, Green Lantern: The Animated Series follows Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, who is used to being in dangerous situations — but he’s never faced anything like this! Set in the farthest reaches of deep space, the series finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion from the Red Lantern Corps.
“The score for the Green Lantern series is a big and epic orchestral score, filled with themes and world instruments,” said Wiedmann. “Since most of the story takes place in space, the musical possibilities are endless. I get to write a blend of sci-fi, heroic action, adventure, utilizing all kinds of worldly instruments. It is a rare opportunity for a composer to have this much variety in creating music for one project.”
Born in Stuttgart, Germany, Frederik Wiedmann came to Los Angeles in 2004 to become a film composer. After three years working as an assistant to veteran composer John Frizzell, Wiedmann scored his first feature Return to House on Haunted Hill for Dark Castle Entertainment (Warner Brothers) in 2007.
Since then, Wiedmann has written the music for a wide variety of feature film and TV productions including Hostel: Part III (Sony Pictures), Mirrors II (20th Century Fox), Hellraiser: Revelations (Weinstein Company, Dimension Films), and The Hills Run Red (Dark Castle Entertainment, Warner Brothers). You can also hear Wiedmann’s musical contributions for TV shows including Moonlight (CBS), Reunion (Fox), Frost Giant (Syfy), Triassic Attack (Syfy), and others.
Wiedmann is also teaching a music technology course in the highly acclaimed Scoring for Motion Pictures and TV graduate program at USC, where he is sharing is extensive knowledge of music production and writing music for the movies.
