061 Observe and Report – Nate Fisher – Title Theme

061 Observe and Report – Nate Fisher – Title Theme

The two versions of Title Theme from Observe and Report covered in this episode are soundtracks for the sci-fi audio drama Observe and Report, a story about an alien that gets stranded on earth. My name is Nate Fisher. I’m a writer and composer from Washington. I wrote the two versions of this piece to express the loneliness of an earthbound alien. The first version is a gentler solo piano piece while the second incorporates big orchestral elements for a grand cinematic feel. Let’s break it down!

01:27 ABOUT & INFLUENCES

Early influences for Back to the Berenian included Danny Elfman’s score for Batman Returns, Australian TV series Farscape and, of course, Star Trek and Star Wars. Before I started creating the series, there just wasn’t much out there exactly like what I wanted to hear. So you take it upon yourself to create the type of stuff you want to hear. After all, who doesn’t pretend they’re climbing into the cockpit of a spaceship? → Check it out “060 Starcalled – Gabriel Alvarez – Back to the Berenian”

059 – The Tower – David Devereux – The Fog Clears (Interlude)

059 – The Tower – David Devereux – The Fog Clears (Interlude)

Join Tin Can Audio’s Scottish creator and composer David Devereux in a gentle ascent into the clouds of audio drama. For fiction podcast ‘The Tower‘, their influences ranged from a family love of the Wurlitzer organ to games like Hyper Light Drifter. This piece ‘The Fog Clears’ was written as an interlude which bridges the story of Kiri, a young girl who climbs an infinite tower to escape the drudgery of her life down below. The Fog Clears is a gentle and expansive soundtrack which musically describes the moment Kiri achieves clarity, peace and the strength to continue her journey.
