The Hunger Games Music Project

Guys, I have some links to share with you. I know I've mentioned the highly talented Matt Bukaty to you all before—he blogs, he composes, he's excellent. And now? He's collaborated with another composer, Edward Underhill, and created an unofficial score to the upcoming Lionsgate film, "The Hunger Games".

And it's really good. I mean, really good. These guys have some serious talent.

Personally, I've read The Hunger Games—the whole trilogy, in fact—and the music these two musicians have composed fits perfectly with the way I envisioned the scenes. But it doesn't matter if you haven't read the book. The music is still fantastic!

There are a few different places for you to check out The Hunger Games Music Project. Never fear! I am linking to them all.

First, their website. Here you can listen to all the tracks. If you've read the book, the titles will make sense. If not, it's still great music. You should really check it out. You can also read about the composers and learn more about how this project came about!

Second, their Facebook page. This is a great place to interact with other fans—we're ready for you to join us! It's also a place where you can share your feedback. Don't forget to take a second to 'Like' their page!

Lastly, you can check out their YouTube page. Here you'll find music and promo videos.

These two guys are truly talented. I think you'll enjoy what they have to offer. :)

I saw your tweet about them and fell in love. I absolutely love what they came up for Rue's song. I truly believe this should be the soundtrack. It's absolutely stunning.

Oh, wow! GREAT job, Matt! Music to MAKE the movie! Jeez. I choked on my swig-o tea, I was so caught off guard... Though it's better, I suppose, than getting one's lip stuck in a fork. Again...

I love me some Sarah. Boo on depleted savings accounts. But just you wait! Summer of 2012 shall be ours! Muaha! MUAHAHAHAHAHAAA! Haaa.

Wow! Interesting. I'll have to check these links out. I recently completed reading the series! Love it. I really want to listen to them on CD (might have to go to the local library and check the audio section!) now and play the music with it :)

@The Reading Bear—Oh, me too. I think it's fantastic! Rue's lullaby is great.

@Bennett—Such are the hazards of eating with a fork! I cannot wait for Summer 2012! I might have to visit earlier than that! Since I'll be graduated *knocks on wood* by January!

@Maggie—Thanks so much! :D

@Samantha—I love that idea!
