People who make horror movies know: if you want to scare someone, use scary music.
Some of the most creative use of music and sound to evoke fear and anxiety is on the TV show Hannibal.
Hrishikesh Hirway of Song Exploder spoke with evolutionary biologist Dan Blumstein, Hannibal executive producer David Slade, and composer Brian Reitzell.
Bonus: To celebrate the addition of Song Exploder to Radiotopia, we’re playing Roman’s favorite episode of the program, featuring John Roderick of The Long Winters “exploding” his masterpiece “The Commander Thinks Aloud.”
