Joseph Trapanese Scores Netflix Series SHADOW AND BONE
SHADOW AND BONE is an upcoming fantasy streaming television series developed by Eric Heisserer and 21 Laps Entertainment for Netflix that is scheduled to premiere on April 23, 2021. It is based on the Grisha trilogy, the first of which is Shadow and Bone, and the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo.
Freddy Carter, Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Amita Suman, and Ben Barnes star in the eight-episode series, which finds us in a war-torn world where dark forces conspire against lowly soldier and orphan mapmaker Alina Starkov when she unleashes an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her war-torn country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is pulled from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
The score is composed by Joseph Trapanese (TRON UPRISING, OBLIVION, SHIMMER LAKE, PROJECT POWER). “We have Joe Trapanese as the composer, who’s good and he’s got a breadth of score work that allows us to do something that you know needs Russian and big and sweeping in one area, and otherworldly in another,” said SHADOW AND BONE showrunner Eric Heisserer in an interview for Collider. “It’s a buffet for him.”
