Goldsmith Talks Stargate DVD Scores

Joel Goldsmith, the longstanding composer for SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate SG-1, told SCI FI Wire that he used different approaches to creating the scores for the two feature-length Stargate movies arriving on DVD.

Stargate: The Ark of Truth, now in stores, used some of the themes Goldsmith set up in the series for the Ori and the Replicators, while the upcoming Stargate: Continuum allowed him to be more expansive in his approach.

"First of all, I could use a symphony orchestra rather than electronics that simulate an orchestra," said Goldsmith, who worked on SG-1 starting with the pilot in 1997. "And because the Ark movie wrapped up some of the stories so well, I reached for a few of the familiar themes from the Ori and Replicators and then created different situations and new themes for Teal'c. Of course, everything was more cinematic."


Continuum, which arrives on DVD in July, is more of a stand-alone film, Goldsmith said. "It is a great, old-fashioned SG-1 film," he said. "It is more retro-Stargate, and, without giving away too much, it's going back to some more things from the past."

Meanwhile, Goldsmith continues working on the spinoff series Stargate Atlantis. "This will be a fantastic season," he said. "People will be really happy with it. They did a great job."
