Marc Streitenfeld & Ben Frost’s Soundtrack to SF Series RAISED BY WOLVES Season 1 Released
WaterTower Music has release the soundtrack to Season One of the HBO Max Original Series RAISED BY WOLVES. Executive produced by Ridley Scott, RAISED BY WOLVES centers on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. Scott directed the first two episodes of the 10-episode series, marking his television series directorial debut for American audiences. The series was created by Aaron Guzikowski (PRISONERS, THE RED ROAD) and premiered on HBO Max on September 3, 2020. The series was renewed for a second season shortly after its premiere.
The music on the RAISED BY WOLVES: Season 1 soundtrack is by composers Marc Streitenfeld – who regularly works with Ridley Scott and is known for his diverse style, ranging from purely melodic, orchestral compositions to unusual instrumentations and haunting, organic sound creations – and Australian composer and producer Ben Frost, who composes minimalist, instrumental and experimental music, with influences ranging from classical minimalism to punk rock and black metal.

Streitenfeld described the series’ music: “A lot of sound experimentation went into the score for RAISED BY WOLVES. I recorded things like the vibration of the wings of a wasp hitting the glass of my studio window, slowed it down, manipulated it melodically and morphed it with live violins and then had a classical soprano imitate that sound with her voice to create a blend that felt artificial and mechanical but also human and organic at the same time. The “Mother” character had a big influence on the score. Her qualities range from incredible strength to fragility. She has to navigate being an android mother who is confronted with human emotions and relationship issues and irrational human behavior, and she struggles as she discovers those human traits developing within herself. The intention was for the score to develop the same range of emotions and qualities.”
“Ridley had very concise and helpful thoughts on how he envisioned the music to feel, and it was great to collaborate with him and the Executive Producers Aaron Guzikowski, David W. Zucker and Jordan Sheehan. I am looking forward to scoring Season 2,” added Streitenfeld.
