John Wick: Chapter 4 Soundtrack Composers
The soundtrack has been curated, and the score for the film has been composed by Tyler Bates and Joel J. Richard. The two musicians have worked on every film of the John Wick franchise for far.
Bates is also known for his work in Deadpool 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and The Darkest Hour, while Richard is famous for Books of Blood, Quantico and Billionaire Boys Club.
Talking about the experience of working on John Wick, Bates said, “The sound of John Wick was created by Joel Richard and me, starting with the first instalment of the franchise before it entered the pop culture zeitgeist. It’s truly amazing that it has grown into what it has become since its inception.”
“Joel and I are long-time friends and we share similar tastes in a vast amount of music so our JW collaboration is essentially a musical conversation. Once we familiarized ourselves with the martial arts culture in the context of what I consider to be a graphic novel-type film, we were encouraged by directors Chad Stihelski and David Leitch to experiment and bring the rock!”
