minutes of original score composed by Brandon Roberts
and featuring vocal solos performed by Úyanga Bold (see
also Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark). Here is a little
quote from the soloist about the working process: "A joy
working with series composer Brandon Roberts, creator Eliot
Laurence and sound team to create the vocal sonic universe for
Motherland. (The protagonists use vocal spells and songs to
affect the world around them!) We recorded at Capital Records
and Marco Beltrami's studio the vocal spell effects and
special vocal music for the show (for example, there is a
scene where my layered vocals are the voices of the characters
joining together to call down rain while the sun is shining).
Overall, a thoughtful creative team process defining how the
spells and songs sound and work.
The brilliant Brandon wrote
beautifully captivating music for the series, of course. It
was a pleasure to sing (and throat sing, and sing like a wolf,
ululate, and more) for him, including for his gorgeous opening
main theme. We used and layered different voice colors to
simulate various characters and vocal spells throughout the
series. (Did I mention he is

working on the score for upcoming sequel A QUIET PLACE

comments from Dirk Brossé as well as award winners John

important aspect of the video is the actual performance
of previously never heard piece from BEN HUR
(orchestrated by Mikael Carlsson), which has never been
recorded or even performed until the event. Sadly the piece is
also missing from the CD, so this is the only opportunity to
hear at least a few fragments from this fantastic world
premiere, which starts at 0:41 and continues until the end of
