Black Sails

Emmy® Award-winning composer Bear McCreary’s score for the Starz original series about the Golden Age of Piracy.  McCreary’s goal was  to create music that sounds improvised by an exhausted pirate crew at sea.  “I wanted the audience to sense dirt beneath fingernails plucking jangly mandolin strings, to feel urgent strains of a hurdy gurdy crank, and to smell stale air wheezing out of old accordion bellows.” The result, described as raw, salty and authentic, also features what Entertainment Weekly called “Arguably McCreary’s best titles theme, and that’s saying quite a bit.”

Produced by Joe Augustine & Bear McCreary
