For me hearting the sound of “Wayward Pines” is like visiting one of my favorite places in the world. Constantly to the mood it wants to set it’s a place where I feel safe and which has a lot of good memories stored. The cues that make up this score are ghosts whispering and moving around me but I welcome them and try to figure out what they are telling me. I’ve grown familiar with them and instead of fearing that thick darkness they weave I cover myself with it and explore the feelings it arises inside me. This is the music I like to reflect and remember on. This deep and ambient sound takes me over and almost hypnotizes me. –Soundtrack Dreams

During a recent recording session at his studio here, Mr. Reitzell, 49, was holding a Newton’s cradle, the desk toy with the suspended clicking balls, just one of the dozens of objects turned music makers that he trotted out over the course of two hours. “This was my daughter’s, but I broke it in the process,” said Mr. Reitzell, a former drummer for the punk band Redd Kross. “I used it in Season 3. It made really interesting rhythms. It was like instant Aphex Twin.” -The New York Times
