ORIGINAL MUSIC


From 1986 to 2002, John Eric Alexander helped define a new genre of original music scored specifically for Theatrical Trailers. Alexander’s scores are still considered to be some of the most recognizable and memorable. The trailer music for “Lethal Weapon” (1, 2, 3 and 4), and “Die Hard” (1, 2 and 3) are considered the “Anthems” for those blockbuster film franchises, and John’s trailer scores for “The Fly”, “The Mosquito Coast”, “Predator”, “Silence of the Lambs”, “Se7en”, “Broken Arrow”, among others set the standard of the day and are often referenced for their innovation.

John Eric Alexander has begun scoring original music once again! Stay tuned - new tracks will be posted here soon!

***Note that I get many requests for the original recordings of my trailer scores, particularly for Lethal Weapon and Die Hard.

Unfortunately, while I retain all rights to the musical scores, I am unable distribute recordings to the public, even if it’s just for “personal use”.

I love my fans and appreciate your enthusiasm, but please do not email with requests for the original recordings unless you would like to use the music

in a legitimate production, and are able to negotiate a contract and sync license for use of any music. Thanks!!
