Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Jeff Bunnell (trumpet).
Audio Mixer: Kevin Manthei.
Liner Note Author: Kevin Manthei.
Just as sports writing is a great place to start a journalistic career (rarely, later on, will a reporter get many opportunities to use verbs like "crush" and "pulverize"), so writing music for animated TV series and features is a great place to start a composing career. As those anthropomorphic animals and hyperkinetic humans flit across the screen, defying gravity and sense, the composer can exercise his or her imagination to accompany them. Envy Kevin Manthei, then, already a veteran of numerous game soundtracks and 26 episodes of Invader Zim, who provided music for the basketful of superheroes in the animated feature Justice League: The New Frontier. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, etc., are members of the league, which goes off to save the world, and Manthei gets to fly right beside them. But just as sportswriters may be bedeviled by tight deadlines and foreshortened column inches, Manthei had his own constraints. In his liner notes, he proclaims his love of Edward Herrmann, Elmer Bernstein, and Aaron Copland (even if he doesn't know how to spell Copland's name), and dreams of a 100-piece orchestra to play his approximations of their work. Alas, "Because of budget and timing," he admits, "the score was realized with samples ...." Manthei did get to have a live trumpeter and woodwind player here and there, but the score still sounds like what it is, computer-generated symphony-like music. And while the onscreen pyrotechnics allowed him to flex his composing muscles, all those superheroes seem to have required a batch of stirring, soaring themes, which seem to get in each other's way sometimes. And the nonstop action doesn't give the music much time to pause in its pounding onrush to the climax, not when Superman et al. are busy crushing and pulverizing their opponents. ~ William Ruhlmann
