Thrilled to be a part of @splitscreenstv! Matt Marks will represent Alarm Will Sound in a panel discussion. He will talk about our work with Brian Reitzell to bring the score to #Hannibal to life on the concert stage.⠀ ⠀ ———————————⠀ From Split Screens TV:⠀ ⠀ A special theatrical screening of the finale of NBC’s “Hannibal,” a nightmare fantasy from Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) that reinterpreted Thomas Harris’ novels through the eyes of an expressionist, polymorphous sensualist. Reworking much of the plot of Harris’ Red Dragon, but in a more hallucinatory way than in earlier film versions, the finale builds to an orgiastic release of pent-up intellectual and sexual energy so intense that viewers may need a cigarette and a towel afterward.⠀ ⠀ Fuller will join the audience via Skype to discuss the finale, the legacy of his cult classic, his new Starz series American Gods, and what a hypothetical fourth season of “Hannibal” would look like. A panel of New York-based Fannibals will discuss the legacy of the show, including its impact on popular art.⠀ ⠀ In person: Leila Taylor, Creative Director at the Brooklyn Public Library; novelist @RobWHart1 (New Yorked, The Woman from Prague); composer @MattMarksMusic of Alarm Will Sound; illustrator and author Janice Poon, food stylist for Hannibal and author of Feeding Hannibal; Dr. Lori Morimoto, independent scholar of fan studies; (via Skype) Hannibal creator and executive producer Bryan Fuller (@bryanfullergram).⠀ ⠀ ——————————–⠀ #AlarmWillSound #SplitScreensFestival #Hannibal #Fannibals #NewMusic #SoundWorlds #BryanFuller #BrianReitzell

Exploring Brian Reitzell’s Delicious Hannibal Collection


Hannibal (Original Television Soundtrack)
Brian Reitzell

There is, and has been, a lot said about Brian Reitzell‘s score for Bryan Fuller‘s take on Thomas Harris‘ enigmatic Dr Hannibal Lecter.

Whilst I’m sure many of you are already more than familiar with the TV shows title character through one of his previous incarnations, I believe that this has been the first time, musically, that the character has really been brought to life. This is not to say that any of the previous musical accompaniments have been wrong or disingenuous, I’m just stating, from my own point of view, that Reitzell’s decadent, dark ambient, orchestral, confrontational and yet highly listenable score, really evokes the character of Lecter, in my humble opinion.

From the very beginning of Volume One, you know that you’re listening and experiencing something unlike anything you have probably ever heard before. To say this was a daring and visionary move would be an understatement: the music like the character of Dr Hannibal Lecter himself is intrinsically complex, thoughtful, daring and also something to be fearful of. Please don’t let my last statement put you off, I am merely saying the score for Hannibal covers almost every gamut of musical emotion and will only leave you wanting more!

Throughout the duration of the shows three season run, the music featured grew and adapted as did each of the main characters. One of my favourite tracks is season three’s ‘The Great Red Dragon’ a three part piece which includes the vocal track ‘Allelujah’ sung by Micha Luna. Season Three also includes the two standouts ‘Snake Charmer’ with vocals by Marc Almond and the Season Three finale ‘Love Crime’ featuring Siouxsie Sioux, one of the most emotionally gripping finales I’ve ever witnessed.

The scores for Hannibal are all available now on CD and Digital with the Vinyl being handled by our wonderful partners Invada Records. Each of the three seasons is split over two double LPs housed in a gatefold sleeve, featuring images from the show + liner notes. The vinyl also comes in two variations, either black or colored vinyl, depending on your taste, they also all come with a digital download card so you can take Hannibal everywhere you go.

If I’ve whetted your appetite for a musical palate cleanse I would highly recommend stating from Volume One and working your way forward. In saying that, each season is a true delight and a collection of music I shall be listening to for many years to come.

“Reitzell’s score to “Hannibal” is an absolute masterpiece. His work helps the show transcend standard fare and elevates it to nearly sublime levels. The deceptive simplicity hides a depth and complexity that mixes wondrous beauty with absolutely terrifying and chaotic dissonance that mirrors the horror of the show, not just in the visuals we witness but in the characters we follow.” – Bloody Disgusting

Hannibal is one of my favourite ever series, deliciously dark, stylish and innovative,” Almond tells PopMatters. “Brian Reitzell’s incredible soundtrack is a major part of creating its surreal, disturbing dreamlike atmosphere, so I was thrilled to be invited to sing on ‘Snake Charmer’. – PopMatters
