Scoring Sessions has revealed some details about the upcoming orchestral score for G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, composed by Alan Silvestri.  They’ve even got some neat behind the scenes images of the process of making the score, which is pretty fasincating.  Most interesting quote is as follows:

“Conducting a 90-piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony, Silvestri’s music contains strong heroic brass themes, big and epic moments, driving action, and even some contemporary rock elements with electric guitar, percussion and synths. The orchestral percussion was so loud that most of the time they had to record them separately from the orchestra, with different passes for the various instrumental groups. Eight French horns, two pianos and two harps added to the walloping soundscape.”
