More teases from the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack

Latest today one of Star Trek Beyond's premiere screenings, held at the San Diego Comic Con, will come with a twist - The soundtrack will be performed live by an orchestra, and choir!

The composer, Michael Giacchino has been sitting in on the rehearsals over the last couple of days, and posted a bunch of snippets on his Instagram, teasing us at some beautiful new music to come from the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack. Continue below to have a listen.

First up, my favourite of the samples, a beautiful and quiet piano version of one of the main nuTrek themes:

Next, a little bit of the choral section:

Something a bit more bombastic:

And finally something that sounds grand and wonderful (I'm inclined to imagine this will play over the introduction to Starbase Yorktown's beautiful vistas):

These aren't the first snippets from the soundtrack we've had, Giacchino posted similar teases during the recording of the actual soundtrack, all of which you can find in a previous report. Star Trek Beyond is due out imminently, and the soundtrack album will be following very shortly after - I can't wait to drink in all the new music!

Michael Gianchino has nothing on Goldsmith and the others who scored the prime timeline movies!

For some reason the soundtrack has been delayed from 22 July until 29 July.
