Quite an age we live in, when even film composers have "unofficial fan sites" out there. And while it might not look very impressive, composer Chris Young can indeed boast such a site, complete with a regularly updated news feature (you can see it here). According to said website, our boy Young has completed the last of his work on the score for the Nicolas Cage vehicle Ghost Rider. The initial score work was apparently done in June, and has since been put together nicely. Young had a good amount of instruments to work with, including 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoon, 8 horns, 3 trumpets, 4 trombones, 1 tuba, 4 percussion, 1 harp, 1 piano, 52 strings and 32 choir voices.

If you want to get a feel for Young's work, you can find some samples on the unofficial site. Trust me, it's good stuff and fits with the general "impressive, booming orchestra" thing most superhero/sci-fi flicks naturally favor. Odds are, you've already heard some of Young's work; he's been around for a while, having worked on films like Swordfish, The Grudge, and Wonder Boys, among many others. However, he seems to be angling towards the superhero gig these days (yeah, who isn't?), and after completing work on The Grudge 2 he's doing some scoring for another little project (which you may or may not have heard of) -- Spider-Man 3.
