The Music of Black Sails

created on Jan-28-2014

It is jaw-droppingly amazing to me that my favourite television composer of all time, Bear McCreary – the man who gave us the astounding scores for Battlestar Gallactica, Caprica, Eureka, Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Human Target –  is composing for Black Sails.

Watch Bear talk about how he come to decide on the “Sound of Sails” and his choice of instruments.
