Academy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer is to collaborate with Irish-based Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela on the soundtrack of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

This will be the first time the two artists will be working together. “We’d always felt it a creative necessity that the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 4′ score have an original sound all its own and to distinguish itself from the first three films. With the inspiring addition of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s unique artistry under the direction of maestro Hans ‘Long John’ Zimmer, this iconic score franchise take its next step forward with an imaginative, fresh and individual new sound,” says Mitchell Leib, President of Music and Soundtracks for the Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Group and Disney Music Group.

Zimmer is one of the most sought after and respected composers with over 100 film scores under his belt. To name a few: Inception, Sherlock Holmes , Gladiator, The Prince of Egypt, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins (impressed yet?)

Rodrigo y Gabriela are considered one of the top guitar playing duo’s in the world. They have sold over one million albums, have sold out arenas and headlined festivals worldwide, and in 2010 they were invited to share the stage with Beyonce for a state dinner at the White House. Their unique style and amazing guitar technique sets them apart from other musicians (anybody that can cover ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and make it sound even better than the original has my vote!).

The soundtrack is scheduled for release May 17 2011

Tech it or leave it ;P
