Y The Last Man Original Score SoundtrackY: The Last Man Original Score Soundtrack featuring score composed and produced by Herdís Stefánsdóttir is available today from Hollywood Records. The drama series, based on DC Comic’s acclaimed series of the same name, debuted on FX on Hulu September 13. New episodes stream Mondays.

Commenting on the soundtrack album Herdís said, “The core of the soundtrack for Y: The Last Man revolves around the female voice. I wanted the voice to be the foundation of the sonic world and build around that. The score is heavily vocal and choral based but goes into a modular electronic zone and the Wild West. I drew inspiration from western cinema music to create a sound for the lawless world fusing it with the choral sound making it something of its own.”

“Heels” – Music from the STARZ Original TV Series by Jeff Cardoni

HEELS Music from the STARZ Original TV Series by Jeff CardoniHEELS Music from the STARZ Original TV Series by Jeff CardoniLions Gate Records has digitally released music from season one of the STARZ Original Television Series “Heels”, composed by Jeff Cardoni (Silicon Valley, The Kominsky Method). The album is available today, in conjunction with the recently aired climactic season finale.

The score predominantly features electric guitar, augmented with strings and piano to reflect the gritty, down-to-earth world the wrestling drama is set in. The opening track “Love in War” (Main Title Theme) features Ben Bridwell, frontman of the Grammy-nominated American rock group Band of Horses. The complete season of “Heels” is available for streaming on STARZPLAY.

Jeff Cardoni says, “‘Heels’ was a dream project work on—I feel it’s the most personal representation of what I do to date. I owe a debt of gratitude to music supervisor Jonathan Leahy. Through him I was given a chance to read the script and submit a demo. I stayed up all that night and wrote a piece of music called “Crystal Belongs in the Ring,” and thought nothing of it. Low and behold, [Executive Producer and] Showrunner Mike O’Malley loved the cue and hired me based on that and my recently released solo album ‘Nuovo Futuro,’ which coincidentally had the instrumental sound I envisioned for the show. Flash forward a year later, and the themes in that first piece of music became the main building blocks of the score and the cue itself appears in the big climax of the season finale.”
