There is no question that Alan Silvestri's score to Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' is one of our favorites. From referencing his own music from 'Back to the Future', to quoting music written by Max Steiner, Wendy Carlos, and Akira Ifukube, the three cues featured in this scene are an example of the incredible dynamic range Silvestri has at bringing action, emotion, memory, and stillness to what unfolds on-screen. Enjoy!
