Da Vinci’s Demons

TwitterHere is my long awaited arrangment of Bear McCreary’s Emmy-award-winning theme to Da Vinci’s Demons.  I wrote it in October after watching the first series of the Starz action series about young Leonardo.

Steve Bingham has not only performed this palindromic piece beautifully but has animated the deconstruction and re-construction of a violin for the video. Yes, it’s a complete palindrome so I asked Steve to flip the audio and the video.

Could the day get any better? Well, yes.  I took a chance and tweeted the link to the composer – who tweeted back at 9am LA time (see insert).  I’m a big fan of Bear and have collected a number of very limited edition signed CDs of his soundtracks.  He is famous for the Battlestar Galactica reboot, Eureka, Human Target, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Walking Dead, Black Sails, The Cape, Wrong Turn, Terminator TSCC, Defiance, Caprica and Knights of Badassdom – to name but a few!

Here’s the video:

Here’s the original theme for Da Vinci’s Demons – performed and composed by Bear McCreary and his musicians – just fantastic.
