McCreary speaks about the process of creating the perfect sound for such a unique series.
“Finding the theme for S.H.I.E.L.D. took a lot of collaboration between me and Joss and Jed [Whedon] and Maurissa [Tancharoen] and the other producers because it’s such a specific sound. We needed something big, that sounded like it belonged in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we also needed something intimate because these aren’t superheroes, these are regular people. These are the human beings that have to come in and clean up the mess.”
McCreary also gives hints as what to expect from Agent Coulson’s theme.
“So actually we have a full symphonic orchestra at our disposal for every episode. So it’s a pretty big canvas. And you know, really Coulson’s theme is the theme of the show. He is the leader of this group. You’re going to hear a lot of big brass.” … “And so a full section of brass that’s pounding out his theme when he comes out in his heroic moments. It’s pretty fun because as a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe he is a hero to us. We love him.”
