Cesar Davila-Irizarry, best known for his main titles theme for FX’s American Horror Story, has composed the theme music for Netflix’s Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel, the first season in a new docu-series that deconstructs the mythology and mystery surrounding infamous locations in contemporary crime. Wendy Blackstone (A Girl in the River, Lost in Florence, Criminal Passion) has provided the original score for the show’s first season, which is directed by Joe Berlinger (Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, Paradise Lost trilogy, Brother’s Keeper) and focuses on the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, which has been linked to some of the city’s most notorious activity, from untimely deaths to housing serial killers, including the disappearance of college student Elisa Lam in 2013. Berlinger is also executive producing the project with Brian Grazer & Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13), Sara Bernstein (Rebuilding Paradise), Justin Wilkes (Mars), Jon Doran & Jon Kamen (Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich) and Ryan Miller. Blackstone has previously collaborated with Berlinger on several documentaries, including Tony Robbins : I am Not Your Guru, Whitey: United States of America vs James J. Bulger & Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory and provided songs for the director’s narrative feature  Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel will premiere this coming Wednesday, February 10 exclusively on Netflix.
