Throwback Thursday: Revisiting Bear McCreary’s ‘Revolt’ Scifi Score

McCreary is known for his out-of-the-box techniques to create the perfect sonic palette for the score. – Behind The Audio

Another masterful piece of work and well worth a listen and then another listen and then another.  – Andy Whitaker, SFcrowsnest

In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we take a look at Bear McCreary’s score to Revolt, directed by Joe Miale.  The scifi film starring Lee Pace and Berenice Marlohe was the perfect vehicle for Bear to collaborate and experiment with the director on creating a unique soundscape.  Check out the behind-the-scenes video below which offer more detail about the making of the score to this all-out battle between humans and machine.

Soundtrack Available Now: [Download/Listen]

To experience the score in context, REVOLT is now streaming on Netflix!  (Also, if you access the trailer on Netflix, you can hear Bear’s score as the trailer music.)



And if you’re a follower of Bear’s compositions, AMC’s The Walking Dead is now in its ninth season, and you can catch the next episode Sundays at 9/8c on AMC!

EXCLUSIVE! ‘The Walking Dead’ Soundtrack: Listen To ‘Glenn’s Wheels’ By Bear McCreary | Nerdist

This track is one of the earliest pieces that McCreary wrote for the show, and he said it presented the first opportunity for him to “establish a musical language for scoring action” on The Walking Dead. It’s an energetic piece that starts light and airy but suddenly dips in and out of a thundering, frenetic bass line. – Clara Mae, Nerdist


Debuting today at Nerdist is a full track, “Glenn’s Wheels” off the “The Walking Dead soundtrack — listen exclusively here.  The album features score sections throughout Seasons 1 through 7 by Bear McCreary, out Friday, October 20 on Lakeshore Records and Sparks & Shadows!
