Abel Korzeniowski - Penny Dreadful Soundtrack
Here’s what Abel is saying about his Main Title to Penny Dreadful:
“I wrote the main title before even seeing the animated sequence. My only guideline was John’s desire for something ‘elegiac’, and a story board with sketches and timings. That early visual concept centered around petrified human forms floating in the abysmal darkness, while evil creatures, which live inside, are cracking the sculptures to get out. This was a very stimulating image, however the main melodic theme came from one of the firsts scenes I scored — Vanessa meets Dorian Gray (#14 NEVER SAY NO) — this was where Vanessa’s Theme was born.
The first part of Vanessa’s Theme begins with a 3-note motif — her signature, which is then stamped across the entire score. The second part reflects Vanessa’s deeper and often suppressed, emotional side (see #18 CLOSER THAN SISTERS, #26 BACK HAND OF GOD)." – Abel Korzeniowski
