Brian Reitzell’s ‘Hannibal’ Score Is TV’s Most Unsettling Soundtrack | The New York Times

During a recent recording session at his studio here, Mr. Reitzell, 49, was holding a Newton’s cradle, the desk toy with the suspended clicking balls, just one of the dozens of objects turned music makers that he trotted out over the course of two hours. “This was my daughter’s, but I broke it in the process,” said Mr. Reitzell, a former drummer for the punk band Redd Kross. “I used it in Season 3. It made really interesting rhythms. It was like instant Aphex Twin.”  -The New York Times

Acclaimed composer Brian Reitzell recently spoke to The New York Times about his scoring work on the critically-acclaimed NBC series, Hannibal.  Now in Season 3, Brian reveals some of his unconventional instrumentation used and sounds made from household items which had been sampled, distorted and rendered nearly unrecognizable. “There is something unnerving about his ability to take household items and manipulate their sounds into something frightening.”  Read the full story at The New York Times.  If you haven’t had a chance to review Brian Reitzell’s score from Hannibal Season 1 and Season 2 released by Lakeshore Records, hear the official album previews below for a taste of “music for cannibals.”
