In a new behind-the-scenes video Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales composer Geoff Zanelli speaks about how he entered Jack Sparrow’s universe when Hans Zimmer and his team were approached 14 years ago – to score the first film within two or three weeks.

Now for Pirates 5 it was the first time for him to be the main composer and this time he had four, five months to score the feature. He also speaks about why a larger than life sound is needed while not losing sight of telling the story of a person as well as how rock and Martin Tillman’s cello have always played a big role in the score’s creation.

Enjoy Geoff Zanelli speaking about the creation of his score for Dead Men Tell No Tales below and feel free to check out our extensive review of his score as well.
