    Interview: Brian Reitzell, composer for NBC’s “Hannibal”
    By Garrett Tiedemann

    LOS ANGELES — You may not know the composer Brian Reitzell by name, but you’ve probably heard his work on television or in movies. His skills have been enlisted by a number of modern storytellers — including filmmaker Sofia Coppola, with whom Reitzell has worked as music supervisor and composer on a number of acclaimed films. Drawing on his training in percussion and sound experimentation, Reitzell is able to evoke core elements of the human experience in ways familiar, yet altogether new.

    Take an exclusive look inside the music of NBC’s Hannibal with Brian Reitzell.

    Oct 24, 2013

    Brian Reitzell demystifies the unnerving music of NBC’s Hannibal in this exclusive segment called The Symphony of Slaughter, along with the show’s creator, executive producers, and director. Take a look at how the musical vision was brought to reality by Reitzell’s unconventional techniques.

    “Working with Brian Reitzell has been a wonderful experience because he thinks about music in a way that I’ve never been exposed to before. He is a true craftsman.” (Bryan Fuller, creator of Hannibal)

    Why music is a crucial element of Hannibal’s waking nightmares
    By Erik Adams July 9, 2013

    …The last thing the viewing public needed in the spring of 2013 was another iteration of Hannibal The Cannibal, but Fuller and his team culled a new vitality from within the source material. While maintaining the crime-thriller aspects that engrossed readers and moviegoers alike, Hannibal took the utterly nightmarish qualities of Harris’ world and made them feel like an honest-to-goodness nightmare. All of Hannibal’s first 13 episodes play out in a dreamlike haze, their abrupt turns to gore and unsettling hallucinations granted the cruel lack of logic of authentic nocturnal terrors.

    This extends to the response to Shore, Elfman, and Zimmer from drummer, composer, and music supervisor Brian Reitzell as well. Gauzy cinematography and hyper-stylized art direction set the scene for Hannibal’s waking nightmares, but it’s Reitzell’s atmospheric scores that keep the show straddling the line between the real and the unreal—making Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score) one of the many technical categories in which Hannibal deserves an Emmy nod.

    Fil Eisler gives ET a behind-the-scenes look into creating the score for ABC’s Revenge!

    Creating the Sound of ‘Revenge’
    By DAVID WEINER

    The intense drama and atmospheric tension of ABC’s Revenge would be practically nil if it weren’t for the show’s incredibly inventive musical soundtrack to support the action. Now, we’ve got an exclusive look behind the scenes of the show with its composer Fil Eisler, aka iZLER. Watch the video!

    From drawing inspiration on the set to literally sifting through junk to find just the right, surprisingly off-kilter sound to bolster Emily Van Camp, Madeleine Stowe and Gabriel Mann’s performances, watch the intriguing and sometimes capricious musical process that Eisler navigates to elevate Revenge to the next level.

    Congratulations to Daniel Licht for eight years of incredible work on Showtime’s Dexter. Go behind-the-scenes with Entertainment Tonight as Licht records the score for the final episode.

    Why ‘Dexter’ Composer Used Human Bones for Music
    By Robert Pace

    After eight seasons, Dexter has come to an end. However, there’s still plenty of unseen behind-the-scenes footage, including ET’s exclusive clip with composer Daniel Licht, who goes into detail on the show’s music.

    Click here to read the entire article.

    We had the opportunity to speak with Daniel about what he will take away from his work on Dexter, and how it will influence his future projects:

    “After eight years of scoring Dexter I have learned a lot about development of material and the importance of taking fresh looks at things. It’s always easy to go with the most obvious solution to any problem. Having the long term view of characters I’ve been able to shine a light on the drama from many different directions.

    I have refined my personal musical language or sound through working on Dexter that I will be able to apply to many other dramatic situations."
