Tyler BatesCC: Let me ask you about another project - THE RISE OF THE ARGONAUTS. Have you completed that video game score?

TYLER BATES: That's a really cool project. But, no, I haven't finished it. It's probably going to take another 4 to 6 weeks to complete, but it's really fantastic. It's definitely the story of Jason and the Argonauts, so it falls into that sword-and-sandals genre of music. It's been a great deal of fun working with the people at Liquid Entertainment (the game's developers). It's been interesting writing music formatted for gaming. It doesn't work exactly like film music does.

CC: About how much music did you write for it?

TYLER BATES: I'm not exactly sure, but I think there will be 70 minutes or so used in the game. My orchestrator, Tim Williams, has also contributed some music for it as well.

CC: Do you think there will be a soundtrack release?

TYLER BATES: Actually, there is a major label who is interested and so it would be great to get the music out there. There's a lot great stuff in there and it is much more classical in its texture. It's going to be 98% straight orchestra and choir with a bit of color woven on top of it. It's not so much of an orchestral/electronic hybrid that I typically do for film.

CC: How was writing for THE RISE OF THE ARGONAUTS different from your work on the game 300: MARCH TO GLORY?

TYLER BATES: RISE OF THE ARGONAUTS was a much more open canvas, creatively speaking. For 300: March to Glory I knew that we were adapt a lot of music from film score.

CC: Let me finish up by asking about some of your big, upcoming projects: WATCHMAN and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. Have you even begun to think about or write for these?

TYLER BATES: It's going to be really interesting because WATCHMAN is so densely packed. Anyone who knows the book, knows its going to be a great challenge to do this film. The score is going to be hugely challenging, too and there is going to be a lot of music. I've seen about 40 minutes of the film so far and it looks amazing. I won't really start working on WATCHMAN for another 3 or 4 weeks though. On THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, they are still filming but they have cut a few scenes to me, so I have had a chance to get a leg up on working with various textures and some of the orchestral motifs for the film. I haven't really committed to themes thus far but it's really early. I am having a good time with it though. It looks great. The acting is good and it is shot very well. It's going to be a real pleasure to work on this one.

CC: It certainly looks like 2008 is going to be a great year for you. Thanks so much for your time today.

TYLER BATES: No problem and thank you.
