Composer Frederik Wiedmann is proud to announce that he will be composing the music for the upcoming Warner Bros. Animation series Beware The Batman, to air on Cartoon Network. Additionally, the film Company of Heroes, featuring music by Wiedmann, was recently released on DVD.
A fresh, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware The Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues’ gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what viewers have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.
“Creating music to complement the unique look and vibe of this show is an exciting process, with lots of experimentation,” said Wiedmann. “I’ve spent weeks digging deep into the world of sound creation and synthesis, exploring new techniques in the world of digital audio, just to give Gotham the right atmosphere and to give the villains in the show their own unique musical character.”
Wiedmann also contributes original music to the all-new Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Original Animated Movies, produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox on July 30, 2013.
“The score for this Justice League story really has everything, from subtle emotion to all-out action, from intricate tension to epic dramatic themes,” described Wiedmann. “It truly was a challenging and rewarding project. This score was recorded in Los Angeles with a wonderful 30-piece orchestra conducted by Hyesu Yang.”
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox will be released on DVD and Blu-ray July 30, 2013, and Beware The Batman will premiere on Cartoon Network later this year.
