"His voice sounds like it's from the future," Ludwig Goransson said of Travis Scott. Tenet's score composer sat down with the rapper to talk about how the Tenet end credits song "The Plan" came together in a new interview released by Warner Bros.
Göransson revealed that he and director Christopher Nolan sent Scott a snippet of the film and that La Flame was so excited by what he saw that Nolan invited him over to the studio to watch the whole thing. That meant that Scott was one of the first people in the world to see the film in full. Watch the full interview below.
Göransson explained that as well as being a fan of the film from day one, Scott's voice "works perfectly with the theme of the movie." For the composer, having Scott's voice at the end created the sense that the "voice of the future was talking to you." "It doesn't stop," he said, "the journey of the movie continues."
During their chat, Scott broke down the difference between making music for a film and an album. “Making music is like, personally, coming from me and my life experiences. I think specifically for this, it’s like embodying a feeling and a moment that’s been captured,” he said. “I feel like in albums, you take your life stories and you put them into lyrics, you spread them out across 16 songs. In this specific situation, it’s just like, ‘This is where we’re at, this is our world, this is what we’re planning. How do you feel? What’s the emotion?’”
