Detective is music for and inspired by cinema. Detective No. 1 particularly draws from genre film, and composers like Bernard Herrman, John Carpenter, Angelo Badalamenti, Brian Eno, Isaac Hayes, Goblin and more, to weave together texture and narrative into emotionally driven instrumental music. It’s a record for fans of horror, sci-fi, true crime, suspense, and blaxploitation. But more than simply paying homage, it looks to build upon these themes and archetypes to create a sound that is both familiar and yet thoroughly modern. From the grim and terrifying, to the mysterious and fantastic, from serial killers to the criminal underworld and into the night sky, Detective is a soundtrack to movies waiting to be made. It is also a project specifically designed and uniquely suited to the demands of modern film scoring and digital media production, driven by a variety of talents who have the ability to work quickly and efficiently at any scale. Let us score your next film!
