The Message Titles

Film and TV often features TV. The average American watches around 5 hours of it a day and if your show is aiming to depict reality, the chances are your characters will watch some of it. There are a surprising number of films and high-end dramas that have lush, innovative or complex scores and yet…the featured TV music has ‘library’ written all over it.
This title music was for BBC3TV show ‘The Message’ and it is built around an idea, not just a series of notes. It sets up a problem, then provides the solution.
