FilmCongratulations to composer Ludwig Göransson for his Best Original Score – Motion Picture Golden Globe nomination for Black Panther. The score was recorded in Studio One with Abbey Road Engineer Lewis Jones and Senior Recordist John Barrett, assisted by George Oulton over 12 days.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’O and Michael B Jordan, Black Panther has received world-class positive reviews since its release in February. The Guardian Said “The score, by Ludwig Göransson and Kendrick Lamar, combines primal beats with the growling purr of a pack of big cats. Cannily, and unusually for a Marvel picture, Black Panther unfolds in a pretty much self-contained world.”
