Kris Bowers Scores HBO® Max Futuristic original series DMZ – Soundtrack Available from WaterTower Music
In DMZ, the futuristic drama based on the comic series published by DC, America is embroiled in a bitter civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone (DMZ), destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world. Leaping off the pages of the popular comic, DMZ chronicles the harrowing journey of fearless and fierce medic Alma Ortega (series star Rosario Dawson), who sets out on a harrowing journey to find the son she lost in the evacuation of New York City at the onset of the conflict. Throwing gasoline on the flames of that conflict is Parco Delgado (series star Benjamin Bratt), the popular — and deadly — leader of one of the most powerful gangs in the DMZ. He wants to rule this new world — and will stop at nothing to secure that outcome. In this adrenalized and expansive drama which examines a stark political and cultural divide in American society, Alma must contend with the gangs, militias, demagogues and warlords that control this lawless no man’s land. In doing so, she becomes the unlikely source of what everyone here has lost…hope.
The DMZ (Soundtrack from the HBO® Max Original Series) features the music of one of today’s most sought after composers, Emmy Award-winning composer and Julliard-trained pianist Kris Bowers, who is currently nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for BRIDGERTON, the Shondaland/Netflix series. Bowers’ wide range of critically work additionally includes the critically acclaimed GREEN BOOK; Ava DuVernay’s miniseries, WHEN THEY SEE US (Netflix) about the Central Park Five, for which he was nominated for an Emmy award; television miniseries MRS. AMERICA for which he was again received an Emmy nomination for Original Dramatic Score. He’s scored Kobe Bryant’s MUSE, Norman Lear: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU, and DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, among others.
