“It’s a lush and evocative orchestral track, with persistent strings that lend it a tension that mirrors the show’s ominous, thriller vibe. It brings to mind for us a modernized take on Bernard Herrmann’s classic Hitchcock scores—it’s no surprise to learn that Herrmann was on the composer’s mind. Mosseri nails the 21st Century update” – Under the Radar

The critically-acclaimed series Homecoming returns for its second season with a fresh new mystery and an exciting new star, Janelle Monáe. Her character wakes in a rowboat adrift a lake, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is. Her ensuing search for identity will lead her into the heart of the Geist Group, the unconventional wellness company behind the Homecoming Initiative.
“Emile Mosseri—an incredible up-and-coming composer, whose past works include The Last Black Man in San Francisco and Minari—gives Cooper a religiously grandiose score whose uneasy delicacy slowly unwinds as the actor’s rage rises.” Consequence of Sound
“The world of Homecoming still looks as slick as the finest spy thriller movies on the big screen. Where season one toyed with the genre’s tropes, by recycling seminal suspense-filled soundtracks (from Hitchcock, De Palma and more), season two recruits rising composer Emile Mosseri (responsible for the stunning score in The Last Black Man in San Francisco) to write original music that helps to build tension as much as the slowly-delivered dialogue.” – NME
“The signature vintage tracks from classic paranoid thrillers have been replaced by an original score composed by Emile Mosseri that’s equally skilled in strumming the viewer’s sense of foreboding and anxiety.” = Salon
“most of the music you’ll hear comes from composer Emile Mosseri. Mosseri has proven adept at capturing very specific moods to match his projects; before his Bernard Herrmann-esque score for the show’s second season, he captured the lighter tone of the 2019 A24 film The Last Black Man In San Francisco.” Men’s Health
“Now, with Homecoming, Mosseri has the added challenge of emulating the film noir inspirations of season 1 while making the score his own. The results are fascinating, both highly indebted to the sourced tracks of the first season while also finding eerie new corners for the show’s universe to musically inhabit.” The Spool
“And now the show sports a moody, spine-tingling original score courtesy of composer Emile Mosseri.” The Spool
“rom the haunting and suspense-filled soundtrack, delivered this time by composer Emile Mosseri, to the visual flourishes and hypnotic storytelling style, the series blends the classic with the extremely modern to make it distinct from everything else out there.” – BT.com
“At its best season two manages both, and among its adroit plusses, there’s a clever original score by composer Emile Mosseri (“The Last Black Man in San Francisco”), taking things away from the first season’s brazen soundtrack-sampling of Bernard Herrmann, Ennio Morricone and other giants.” Chicago Tribune
