MovieScore Media: The Game [2014] - Daniel Pemberton


The Game (Original Television Soundtrack) will be available in digital stores exclusively in the US and Canada from November 4 onwards. The album will then be released on CD and digitally in the rest of the world in the first quarter of 2015.

Co-inciding with the November 5 premiere on BBC America, MovieScore Media releases the original score album for BBC’s high-concept spy series The Game composed by Daniel Pemberton (the upcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E, Ridley Scott’s The Counselor) in digital stores exclusively in the US and Canada. The album will then be released on CD and digitally in the rest of the world early 2015.


The Game is by writer/creator Toby Whitehouse (Being Human, Doctor Who) and director Niall MacCormick (Complicit). The six-episode spy thriller reignites the Cold War as the head of MI5 codenamed Daddy (Brian Cox) sets up a secret committee to investigate a Soviet plot. Operation Glass, which is revealed by a leaving KGB officer, involves a sleeper agent in Britain who is about to be re-activated as part of a secret mission. Each episode of the series follows the investigation of a possible traitor / sleeper agent; the possible suspects are played by actors like Paul Ritter, Victoria Hamilton and Tom Hughes.

Though Daniel Pemberton has been getting more involved in feature film scoring, Daniel has great experience in the field of television scoring, having worked on over 500 shows. Credits include countless award winning dramas and documentaries, amongst them Prey, Complicit, Space Dive, Peep Show, Desperate Romantics, Occupation, Upstairs Downstairs, Prehistoric Park and Hiroshima.

The Game tries to create a sonic world which pays tribute to the whole spy jazz genre, but also aims to delight fans of film music with a few unexpected solutions.
