Paul Brill wrote the theme music. We gave him several guidelines and then turned him loose to compose the music.
“The Michigan Radio producers indicated that they liked scores that built with layers,” he says. “They also indicated that they were interested in the mating of electronic beats with acoustic instruments. When composing this piece, I set out to convey a sense of urgency, while building tension and release.”
Brill is a native New Yorker. He’s a self-taught musician who began writing his own songs during college. Eventually he moved to California and joined a band. But the ups-and-downs of a major record label and national-touring schedule soon led him to focus on his solo work as a singer-songwriter.
He’s released three albums to date, the most recent of which he’s called “a big musical breakthrough.” “New Pagan Love Song”. His musical work has provided the backdrops for several films, including the forthcoming documentary “The Trials of Daryl Hunt,” for which he scored the entire soundtrack. Paul says he’s looking forward to the future, when he can find a balance between the three aspects of music he loves: commercial work (such as film-scores), musical production on other artists’ albums, and his own songwriting and recording.
