The Incredibles is the soundtrack album for the 2004 film of the same name. It was released through Walt Disney Records on November 2, 2004, and composed by Michael Giacchino. It is the first Pixar film to be scored by Michael Giacchino. Brad Bird was looking for a specific sound as inspired by the design of the film — the future as seen from the 1960s. John Barry was the first choice to do the film's score, with a trailer of the film given a rerecording of Barry's theme to On Her Majesty's Secret Service. However Barry did not wish to duplicate the sound of some of his earlier soundtracks; the assignment was instead given to Michael Giacchino.
The completely orchestral score was released on November 2, 2004, three days before the film opened in theaters. It won numerous awards for Best Score and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Music used for the film's trailers but not available on the soundtrack album includes "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", from the Propellerheads album Decksandrumsandrockandroll, as well as excerpts from the David Arnold project Shaken and Stirred. The animated short Jack-Jack Attack, which accompanied the film's DVD release also features the "Alla Turca" movement from Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 11.
Giacchino noted that recording in the 1960s was largely different than modern day recording and Dan Wallin, the recording engineer, said that Bird wanted a very old feel, and as such the score was recorded on analogue tapes. Wallin noted that brass instruments, which are at the forefront of the score of The Incredibles, sound better on analog equipment rather than digital. Wallin came from an era in which music was recorded, according to Giacchino, "the right way," which consists of everyone in the same room, "playing against each other and feeding off each other's energy" Tim Simonec was the conductor/orchestrator for the recording of the score. All tracks written by Michael Giacchino.
