Tomorrow is the premiere of USA Network’s newest drama from show runner Andy Greenwald and executive producer Sam Esmail. Briarpatch tells the story of Allegra Dill (played by Rosario Dawson), a dogged investigator returning to her border-town Texas home after her sister is murdered. What begins as a search for a killer turns into an all-consuming fight to bring her corrupt hometown to its knees.
Last month, we got to speak with composer Giancarlo Vulcano about his score for the surreal new series. Today we are pleased to host the theme music exclusively on GoSeeTalk. Have a listen, and we hope you enjoy the show!!
From our interview with him last month, here’s what Vulcano had to say about writing for the show:
We established a lot in the first episode, and set the tone musically. I had written a bunch of big themes before they even started shooting. So before anyone was really working on the pilot, we had these broad themes that formed the larger thematic architecture .
As the ten episodes progressed, we were able to take a particular area of the show and go deep into a certain character and his background. It’s one of these shows where you meet a lot of people in the first episode but you really learn more about them as the show moves on, and people aren’t what they seem. Andy has managed to make a deep story that feels three-dimensional, and like there’s always something to be uncovered and something just beyond the periphery.
