Watch an orchestra play music from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack live from Abbey Road Studios

I mean, it was live when it debuted sometime yesterday afternoon, and now it’s commemorated as (probably) the first ever live broadcast of a film scoring session. Conducted by Tim Williams and composed by Tyler Bates (who both worked previously on the original movie), the piece is… dramatic? Yes, that works. Kind of melancholy too. Dreamy. Poignant. Even a bit ominous.

Oh, somebody is going to die, I bet. Or bang.

The film is being scored and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London where, as director James Gunn explains, the soundtracks for Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy were also done.
