A Summer Soundtrack for SERVANT
June 24, 2020
Trevor Gureckis’ SERVANT Score For Apple Tv+ Comes To Vinyl August 7th
Through the collaborative efforts between Director M. Night Shyamalan and Composer Trevor Gureckis (THE GOLDFINCH, BLOODLINE), the score to SERVANT on Apple TV+ is one of the most unsettling, disturbing and unforgettable horror scores of the year. The vinyl soundtrack will be released August 7th from Lakeshore Records. (A digital soundtrack was issued by Lakeshore last November.)
The series, which premiered last November 28, consists of ten 30-minute episodes and follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home. Lauren Ambrose, Nell Tiger Free, and Rupert Grint star.
Broke Horror Fan announced the forthcoming vinyl release yesterday, and included this statement from Gureckis about his score: “SERVANT’s musical sonic palate of clanging percussion, prepared piano, wailing bowed instruments, and detuned strings and winds came about from M. Night and I having the unified willingness to take the time to explore as many ideas as possible, in search of the right sound for the series. I started with a rather full orchestral concept but we soon realized that with the whole show taking place in a single house, almost like a play, it needed an intimate sound with small objects. As the series progresses, existential threats develop and likewise the score expands. Hearing one of the early tracks like ‘Welcome’ or ‘Monitor’ with its austere brutalism and then the textural complexity of the final track ‘The Servant,’ gives you a sense of the journey we go through within these 10 episodes.”
The album will release on 2x LPs pressed on Classic Black Vinyl in a Doublewide Sleeve.
