Lakeshore Records
will release four volumes of music from the hit NBC television series Hannibal, composed by Brian Reitzell. The Hannibal Seasone One Volumes 1 & 2 will be available digitally on August 5th and on CD September 2, 2014. The Hannibal Season Two Volumes 1 & 2 will be available digitally on September 2nd and on CD September 23, 2014.

“Visually it’s so artfully done and quite fantastical, so I see it like an opera staging, otherwise I might be more disturbed,” said Reitzell of Hannibal. “Listening to the music alone is scarier than in the context of the show.”

One of the most memorable instruments from the first season of the show is a bullroarer. Reitzell describes, “It is an aboriginal instrument. Every continent on Earth has a form of bullroarer — it’s the oldest instrument known to man.” The one he uses, he got from eBay for $5. The instrument is spun around your head and creates a low hum that has movement in space and not just sound. Recorded in surround sound for the series.
“So when you listen to it, it spins around your head, and it’s really powerful.”

One of the most fascinating literary characters comes to life on television for the first time: psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter. In this drama we see where this incredible story begins.

The Hannibal Lecter character is known as a gourmet chef, with a penchant for using unusual ingrediants. Episodes from the first season were named after elements in French cuisine and the second season from Japanese haute cuisine. “Scoring is very similar to cooking,” described Reitzell. “Except with music you can throw all the spices in to the pot and then take them out one by one to see what flavors arise out of uncommon combinations. If you put too much white pepper in your sauce it’s very hard to take it out but with Protools. You just delete the white pepper.”

Available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
