Check it out.

On “Star Trek” — the biggest minefield of his three summer films, because of the baggage and fan expectations — Giacchino started composing a year ago and quickly ran into a creative wall trying to write “space adventure music” to match the classic themes of five TV series and 10 movies.

Only when “Star Trek” co-producer (and “Lost” show-runner) Damon Lindelof suggested that Giacchino reset his thinking to the idea that it was “a story about two guys who become best friends” was the composer freed to come up with themes. For Kirk he offered “a sense of building, and of inevitability,” says Abrams, and for Spock “something sad,” says Giacchino, “with a voice that felt alien, not of our place,” that led to the choice of the Chinese stringed erhu as lead instrument.

This summer Michael Giacchino will be in Spain attending the V International Music Festival in Úbeda, Spain. The festival runs from July 16th to 19th. While his level of participation is still not totally clear he will at least be holding a workshop on composition, as well as a CD signing. The event will also include a live performance of the Star Trek soundtrack Giacchino composed, and it is possible Giacchino may step in to conduct it himself.

The festival put together a video trailer for the planned concert:
