I will speak about the score and the process that went into achieving what we set out to do. I will examine the process that went into designing all the creatures and aliens by working with Death Metal singers. I will talk about the Star-Lord rock album that I recorded during the production. Overall, it will be a frank discussion about this giant labor of love.
