Something a little different from Transformers: Universe, the MOBA game by Jagex - an interview with the ears behind the music! Check out below some extracts from this interview with James Hannigan, who also scored the videogames for Lord Of The Rings, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Command And Conquer among others, on Examiner.com.

Let’s first talk about your recent work on the new “Transformers Universe” game. What inspired you to get involved with the project? What has impressed you most about working on this game?

JH: I enjoyed Transformers as a child and I’m just one of those people who finds it difficult not to get excited by large, warring robots. I particularly like how they’re partially organic as well and have such distinctive personalities. Basically, I’m a sucker for the mythic theme of ‘good vs. evil’; not to mention being a sci-fi and fantasy buff in general.

[...]

Did you also take some inspiration from the music that composers such as Steve Jablonsky and Brian Tyler wrote for the films and animated television series that would help make your score fit in the Transformers Universe musically?

JH: Not specifically, although I love the work of those composers. I was merely trying to, on one level, create music that fit into the wider world of Transformers (which is already very varied across film and television over decades now) but with a new dimension as well. Some of the music of Transformers Universe is pretty harsh, grinding and mechanical, yet at other times it can be quite minimal and ethereal. The team at Jagex have also been working on music, and their output is also varied, a reflection perhaps of the fact that the Transformers themselves have wildly different personalities.

[...]

What were the recording sessions like?

JH: Very nice and we recorded the Philharmonia at Abbey Road Studios in London for some of the music. It is always a humbling and breathtaking experience to have your music performed by a full orchestra and the level of musicianship among players in London is truly outstanding.

Will a soundtrack album be released?

JH: Very possibly, but I have no details.

Coinciding with and celebrating the release today of the Transformers: Age of Extinction DVD and Blu-Ray editions - and our exciting Seibertron.com/Paramount giveaway competition - entertainment website Comic Book Resources have taken the opportunity to have a chat with voice actor Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime in many of his incarnations. The clip can be found below, and more here.

To celebrate the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction on Blu-ray, Paramount Studios held a special “Behind the Wheel” press event in Las Vegas, where CBR’s Steve Sunu was able to get behind the wheel of some of the types of cars used in the summer blockbuster.

After tearing through a 7-turn track in an Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo Ip560-4, which he opened up to over 100 mph, Sunu sat down with Peter Cullen, the iconic voice of Optimus Prime, to discuss his legacy over the last 30 years of Transformers and how grateful he is for having the opportunity to bring to life a character who has had a positive influence over several generations of fans.

Sunu also spoke with driver Sli Lewis, who was responsible for some of the film’s dangerous stunts, about his earliest experience behind the wheel, and his father’s immediate pride at his son’s driving prowess.

We sadly report the passing of Buster Jones, musician, actor and voice talent for multiple animated series in the 70s and 80s, including The Transformers, where he portrayed the Autobot music enthusiast Blaster. The following excerpt is from this post, where multiple links can be found to interviews conducted by Jones through the years. He will be missed.

Transformers News: Voice Actor Buster Jones Passes Away


Buster Jones, popular cartoon voice actor of the 1970s-80s, passed away on 9/15/14. I learned of this because his neighbor kindly notified his Facebook friends list one at a time. Buster was not married and had no children.

In 2011, I had the privilege of interviewing him for my Super Friends blog series. It was the first interview he gave about his animation voiceover work. His interview was one of the most candid of that (or any of my) series—in fact, one of his stories in particular is flat-out ribald. Buster had been out of the VO business for a while and was desperate for work. That interview got him invited to a cartoon convention in Texas, for which he got paid—and the royal treatment.

When talking conversationally, Buster had a stutter. However, when he recorded, it went away.
