Teaser: DA VINCI'S DEMONS - Bear McCreary

DA VINCI'S DEMONS
Music by: Bear McCreary

The theme is currently available on iTunes, with a full soundtrack planned for this summer. 

For the historical drama DA VINCI'S DEMONS (airing on STARZ), composer Bear McCreary was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, who famously wrote backwards and forwards.

Said McCreary, "Leonardo’s Theme is a palindrome, inspired by the mirror writing (writing backwards and forwards) that he is famous for.  In music, this technique is an established trick called ‘retrograde.’  The theme is the same when played forwards or backwards."
