Though the final film proved to be a bit divisive, one of the best things about Man of Steel is undoubtedly Hans Zimmer’s massive score. Just as with his previous scores, Zimmer thought outside the box with regards to the Man of Steel music, and one of the more interesting tactics he used in crafting the score was assembling a “who’s who” of some of the best drummers to record some intense percussion sessions. A new featurette has landed online that documents said sessions, showing the composer getting together a group of 12 drummers to all play at once. The team of performers includes the likes of Pharell Williams and Sheila E, and it’s a lot of fun to see a big circle of 12 drum kits pounding at the same time.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette, and if you missed Steve’s extended interview with Zimmer about his work on the film, click here. Man of Steel is now playing in theaters everywhere.
