This week at Comic Con, writer/director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) and film composer Nathan Johnson are scheduled to appear on “The Character of Music” panel to discuss the soundscapes of their upcoming film Looper. From the press release:

Looper is perhaps [Nathan’s] most unique score to date, featuring a host of indecipherable instruments along with intertwining rhythms and textures. In preparation for the project, Nathan began gathering a wide range of field recordings and then he and his team created a sort of playable, hybrid found-sound orchestra using those original recordings.

But just in case you can’t make it to San Diego, Ain’t It Cool News has posted this exclusive featurette on Nathan Johnson’s Looper score with a listen to the track “Time Machine”:

Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Emily Blunt, hits theaters September 28.
