I’ve worked with Stephen Barton before, so when he and his team asked me to help them out on the 12 Monkeys TV series, I was more than happy to do so.
It was a small and specific request, initially. A cue needed a variation on the, at that point, insanely popular shepherd’s tone concept from the Dunkirk score. I put something fun together in Omnisphere for him and his team, and then did a couple of variations.
What was actually a little more interesting, to me at least, was that Stephen came back to me and asked me if I could write a cue for the series. He needed a track for a nightclub scene, in the style of The Prodigy. And he needed it quick! So, I grabbed some loops and synth and plenty of compression and distortion and put together a quick little track.
Quite an unexpected “additional music” credit, I must say.
You can listen to the track below…
