Music from the Netflix original series

Double LP set assembled by composer Daniel Pemberton

Complete with notes and pictures of all your favorite characters!

The 2LP includes highlights from Volume 1 and 2 of the original music from the Netflix Series, featuring music by composers Daniel Pemberton and Samuel Sim. The compilation was personally assembled by Pemberton, and the records are housed in a gatefold jacket complete with notes and pictures of all your favorite Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance characters.

Composer Daniel Pemberton reveals: "I wanted the music to be as magical as Thra itself — organic, imperfect, strange, mystical, otherworldly and wonderful. I wanted to create new sounds that felt like they came from the world itself, as well as using thematic large scale orchestral elements to bring an emotion to the journey of the characters. I wanted music and sounds that would fill you with wonder, but also terrify you. It was very important to me that all the sounds felt like they could only be from Thra itself — no grand pianos or overtly electronic elements. Every sound had to feel organic and visceral, from the dark detuned glissando cello sounds made for the Skeksis, to the upbeat flutes from the Podling's bar. We created noises out of wine glasses, metal chains, wooden drums, metal sculptures on a snow covered mountain and old creaky medieval instruments to try and make a sonic world as unique as the visual one."

"The Dark Crystal is set in a unique world of magic, adventure, threat and danger. The music had to capture that majestic wonder, as well as its dark, sinister underbelly," describes composer Samuel Sim. "Although nearly all the sounds in the score come from an acoustic or ‘real' source, a huge amount of time was spent twisting, morphing and detuning them to create something completely new and surprising. For example, there are places in the score where flutes and clarinets were pitched down 5 octaves to sound like tubas and bass trombones. Nickel harps and cellos were put through guitar amps and at one point we even took the sound of chirping crickets and slowed it down so much that it created weird otherworldly pads and drones. It was important to us that the music should be both bold and epic but also unique, strange and mysterious to become the beating heart of the land of ‘Thra' itself."
