I just started watching this new show ‘Tales From The Loop’ on Amazon… Based on the art of Simon Stålenhag which until now I never really heard of or knew was a thing. I’m just 3 episodes in, and the series strikes me as a blend of Eureka and Dark Mirror. Anyhow, the point of this post is the music.
I’m a sci-fi nerd. Have been my entire life. I notice weird commonalities between universes, be it actors, character types, but music is something I’ve always oddly noticed. There was this show for instance based on the work of Stephen King “Haven” which had a theme song that to me – always triggered a memory of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out for NES. Specifically the cut scene between major bouts where Lil Mac was jogging behind his trainer.
Anyhow – enough of that tangent. I’m watching episode 2, ‘Transpose’ and hear this musical score that reminds me of Battlestar Galactica. I mention it to a friend who points out the composer of the score from TFTL Philip Glass… I hop online, Google the BG and the composers name and get this:
Same composer, so that explains the similarity. I haven’t been able to find the song from TFTL online yet, but they both evoke the same mood. Figure I’ll finish TFTL, finish my Smallville binge, then move on to Battlestar Galactica. 🙂
