Da Vinci’s Demons Season: 3 [2015] - Bear McCreary (SparksShadows)


Sparks & Shadows announces the release of the DA VINCI’S DEMONS - SEASON 3 (Original Television Soundtrack), featuring music by Bear McCreary.  The album from the third and final season of the hit STARZ Original series, produced by Adjacent Productions, will be available, both digitally and on CD, November 3, 2015. A 2-CD Collector’s Edition of the DA VINICI’S DEMONS - SEASON 2 (Original Television Soundtrack), featuring 10 bonus tracks–over 28 minutes of music–will also be released on November 3rd.

“The score for Season 3 strikes the perfect balance between modern and ancient instrumentation,” said McCreary. “As the series’ composer, I have enjoyed the challenge of blending the Renaissance tones of the viola da gamba, lutes, and Celtic harp with contemporary orchestral writing, subtly-layered modern synth sound design, and heavy percussion. This album reflects the ideal equilibrium.”

“Scoring the first season, of DA VINCI’S DEMONS, I was immersed into a rich world of historical fantasy, and tasked with writing over a dozen primary character themes,” McCreary described.  “For the second season, I was able to introduce new themes, such as for the mysterious Labyrinth, and our characters from Peru and the Middle East. By the end of the Season 2 finale, the score had evolved into a layered tapestry of musical material. The various stories of the first two seasons culminate their arcs in Season 3 as character allegiances align in unexpected ways.”


An Emmy® Award winner for Da Vinci’s Demons, McCreary also composes for The Walking Dead (which shattered records with 17.3 million viewers for its fifth season debut), STARZ’s debut series Outlander (for Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore who he previously worked with on Battlestar Galactica), Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.—the #1 series debut of the 2013 fall season, the STARZ series Black Sails, the Syfy series DefiancE, and the feature films Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, Everly and Europa Report.  McCreary recently earned his fourth Emmy nomination, his first for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Drama), with Outlander.

“The score for the third season takes all of the essential thematic ideas developed over the past two years and weaves them together into what I hope is an immensely satisfying musical finale,” said McCreary. “Very few projects have had so profound an impact on my life as Da Vinci’s Demons. I have formed truly wonderful friendships, with producers, actors, writers, crew, and executives alike, relationships I trust will last for many years to come.”
