Of the soundtrack, composer Bear McCreary says, “I dove into scoring The Last Voyage of the Demeter as if it were a rite of passage! Writing a theme for a cinematic depiction of Bram Stoker’s iconic Dracula is a dream come true for any film composer. I was inspired by the eerie, ominous atmosphere that visionary director André Øvredal managed to craft with this film. Hoping to take the audience back to the eighteenth century with symphonic orchestra, choir, and rustic folk fiddles, I also strove to tell a modern tale of horror with distorted French horns, screeching hurdy gurdy harmonics, and hideous atonal colors. Just as Dracula is a foreign beast to the sailors of the Demeter, these modern cinematic sounds slither ominously throughout the traditional symphonic colors to create a sound that I hope is equally inviting and terrifying.”

    Can’t wait! Bear McCreary always makes amazing music, and I’m sure this will be no exception!

  2. Mark says:

    I love rich, dark, modern classical music and own quite a lot of CDs. I sure wish this great film score would be released on CD like the Rings of Power and others. It deserves to have a presence in the physical-media realm.
