Varèse Sarabande: FLESH AND BONE [2015] - Dave Porter


Varèse Sarabande will release the FLESH AND BONE – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on December 11 and on CD January 15, 2016. The album features original music by composer Dave Porter (BREAKING BAD, THE BLACKLIST).

“Moira challenged me to be more overtly emotional than I usually am,” Porter said. Moira Walley-Beckett, the series’ creator and Executive Producer, challenged him “to use the score as a powerful force to enhance the stakes of the drama, but always encouraged me to find my own way of expressing it.”  On a series with a background of ballet, Porter felt the score should feature classical orchestral instruments, but in order to distinguish it from the more traditional ballet music around it he chose a more modern direction. At times it was spare, and at other times charged with dissonance.

Dave Porter is a Los Angeles-based composer for television and film best known as the series composer for the EMMY®-acclaimed drama BREAKING BAD, scoring all 62 episodes and creating its iconic theme. For his work on the series, Dave was awarded the inaugural ASCAP Composer's Choice Award by his peers as Best Television Composer of 2013.

Since then, Dave has become a sought-after composer in Hollywood. He currently scores NBC's massive hit THE BLACKLIST starring James Spader as well as BETTER CALL SAUL, the Emmy nominated prequel to BREAKING BAD, which was cable television's most watched new show in 2015.
 


For FLESH AND BONE, the STARZ limited series that details the gritty underworld of professional ballet, Porter reunited with fellow BREAKING BAD alum Walley-Beckett. This dark and gritty series follows a young dancer, Claire, as she joins a prestigious New York City ballet company and encounters the glamour and dysfunction of the ballet world. She becomes Artistic Director Paul’s muse, creating new opportunities and new enemies. Claire's self-destructive tendencies amid her vaulting ambitions drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when she is confronted with the machinations of the company's mercurial Artistic Director and an unwelcome visitor from her past.

“This is my first release on the Varèse Sarabande label, and is a comprehensive collection of my score," Porter concluded.  "FLESH AND BONE is a gritty, complex series that steadfastly explores the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world.” Porter went on to say, “this score represents another facet of my work as a composer when working with classical orchestral instruments.”

STARZ presents the limited television series FLESH AND BONE, which debuted November 8, 2015. Varèse Sarabande will release the STARZ – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on December 11 and on CD January 15, 2015
