Behind the Scenes: Music of The Cape

Hi again!

So over the last few months we’ve seen teasers for NBC‘s new series The Cape and I have to admit I’m intrigued. The concept is a bit like Batman Begins meets Kick-Ass and I will watch at least one episode purely because Keith David is in it. He’s awesome in everything.

But I found out today that in addition to Keith, there’s somebody else contributing to the show that I’m a huge fan of. Bear McCreary.

Bear has done the soundtracks for such shows as The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica, and Human Target season 1. (I miss his music on season 2 of Human Target, but it’s still been a fun show this season.)

Well, here he is scoring the music for The Cape with a full orchestra. Though the music sounds a bit like what he did for <em>Human Target</em>, there are subtle differences and I’ll be interested to see what the rest of the music sounds like in that first episode.

Now I’m REALLY excited about Sunday’s premiere episode!

  1. Did you watch the show yet, it was pretty good I thought. Much more comic book like than Heroes, but did borrow heavily from Batman and other comic characters.

  2. @Justin – I did watch it and though the show uses every comic book cliche known to man, I had fun. I love the fact that it doesn’t take itself too seriously but just seriously enough. I’ll keep watching until I lose interest probably. 🙂
