About this album

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl soundtrack is the official soundtrack album from the film of the same name. The album was released on July 22, 2003, by Walt Disney Records and contains selections of music from the movie’s score. The music of the film and this album are both credited to composer Klaus Badelt. The score is mostly famous for its quick and mysterious production, as well as its considerable departure from the genre’s traditional musical style.

Composer Alan Silvestri was originally hired to write the score for The Curse of the Black Pearl. However due to creative differences between him and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Silvestri left the project and Gore Verbinski asked Hans Zimmer, whom he had worked with on The Ring, to step in. Zimmer declined to do the bulk of the composing as he was busy scoring The Last Samurai, a project during which he claimed he had promised not to take any other assignments. As a result he referred Verbinski to Klaus Badelt, a relatively new composer who’d been a part of Remote Control Productions (known as Media Ventures at the time) for three years.

Zimmer however ended up collaborating with Badelt to write most of the score’s primary themes, many of which are featured in an all-synthesized demo credited to him (available to listen to from a link about halfway down this page. A slightly shorter version of this cue is also included in Pirates of the Caribbean: Soundtrack Treasures Collection.
