The music suite “Music Of The Spheres“, which had been written by Martin O’Donnell, Michael Salvatori and Paul McCartney to serve as a companion piece to the soundtrack of the video game “Destiny“, was recorded during those four days at Abbey Road.
Paul McCartney only joined the sessions on Wednesday 21st ; which is the likely date when the orchestral overdubs for “Hope For The Future” – a song which would appear in the end credits of the game – were recorded.
From Mark McKenzie, orchestrator on those sessions:
Working with Paul McCartney at Abbey Road Studios on the music for Bungie’s electronic game DESTINY was rewarding. Both his musicianship and humanity were refreshing. After conversations about the Beatles, family, the concerts he was doing, USC football, various Beatles songs, Paul put his arm around me and told my composer friends Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori “We’re mates!” I admire this man for more than his music. He loves people and has absolutely no air of self-importance. When I asked how it felt to have such a legacy he said: “Sometimes I wake up in the morning and tell myself “Hey, I did pretty good getting into that band called The Beatles.” Always quick to laugh, no wonder we love him and his music so much.Mark McKenzie
