Christopher Lennertz records the score for Revolution
With possible blackouts throughout our nation's capital, a Revolution may be upon us. Returning March 25, 2013 at 10:00PM/9:00PM CST, Revolution is NBC's number one new drama and the fall's most watched series among younger viewers. Featuring original music every week by award winning composer Christopher Lennertz, Revolution was created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man) and produced by J.J. Abrams (Lost) and stars actors Billy Burke (Twilight Saga) and Tracy Spiridakos (Rise of the Planets of the Apes). Christopher Lennertz records the score weekly with a full orchestra.
At Revolution’s midseason finale, Charlie is finally reunited with her kidnapped brother and estranged mother, but the joy is short lived. Starting in March, we can expect to see lots of action and drama as our protagonists find a way to turn on the power – and watch it fall into the enemy’s hands. To fit with the post-apocalyptic landscape devoid of power, Lennertz incorporates several out of tune dulcimers and acoustic ethnic instruments to craft a sense of ominous anonymity. With the next story arc revolving around turning the power back on, Lennertz will incorporate more electronic instrumentation in addition to the full orchestra to supplement the mystical score.
