I was so jazzed to be able to work on this project. The book by Stephen King was one of my favorites as a kid, and I was excited that it was being produced as a miniseries.
Snuffy Walden, with whom I had already worked on several shows and TV features, called me in to help with arrangements and orchestrations for the show with only a few weeks to go in post. There was an enormous amount of score; some of it quietly thematic, some textural, some eerie, and some gothic horror. Hours of music! And we turned it around very quickly!
It was a great pleasure to work with Snuffy again and with some of the industry’s top rhythm players on what Stephen King referred to as “blue jeans music.” It was a perfect compliment to one of my favorite King movies.
The following is one my favorite of Snuffy’s themes from the mini-series.
