The Legend of Korra (Original Music from Book One) by Jeremy Zuckerman on Apple MusicThe Last Airbender melded Eastern influences with Tolkien lore, and with Korra, DiMartino and Konietzko jumped ahead 70 years to see what it would all look like amidst an industrial revolution. Following the new Avatar, a year-old named Korra, the first season explores themes of class discrimination and totalitarianism through detailed art, fluid camerawork, and genuine-sounding dialogue. With most big-screen animation focused on the lives of anthropomorphic animals, Korra reminds that the medium can also boast emotional storytelling. And ambitious music, like the two tracks from the upcoming show soundtrack that Vulture is premiering exclusively. It utilizes instruments from around the world, including the dizi, a Chinese flute, paigu drums, the guqin, a seven-string zither, and the matouqin, a Mongolian stringed instrument. I wanted it to be sparse at times, have cues that are one or two instruments. Is it full on aggressive or is there a bit of sadness?
The Legend of Korra: Book One Soundtrack
I just love this so much. These are the cats who performed the original versions for the show. The "Beartrek" soundtrack is available today via all streaming outlets! This is almost entirely a synth score which was a super satisfying departure for me. For the tech-minded and ultra-curious, I mainly used two open-source platforms: the modular synthesis software VCVRack , and the audio synthesis platform SuperCollider.

The soundtrack's cover features a special design of Avatar Korra. For nine years, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko had struggled to create a soundtrack for Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra , a "bureaucratic impasse" having kept them from reaching this goal despite numerous online petitions with thousands of signatures for the release of an Avatar soundtrack. Cooperation with Nickelodeon as well as with people outside of the company resulted in plans for the first-ever Avatar soundtrack, The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One , with most or all of the tracks having already been produced and recorded for use in the series. The soundtrack has been described as jazz, but as if it were stylized in s-era China. Its tone has been described as being a bit more mature and adult like from the soundtrack of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Track Team wanted a more in-depth exploration of instruments and as a result, the music is a little more sparse in the number of instruments playing at once.
