Blanck Mass (Fuck Buttons, Benjamin J Power, The Editors) scored the new Amazon Prime series “The Rig”, staring Iain Glen and Emily Hampshire.
The score is pressed on 2 x translucent green vinyl and housed in a wide spined sleeve with double sided printed insert and digital download card.
“With The Rig being the first TV show I have scored, I feel lucky to have worked with the team behind the show on a score which to my mind is my most concise and unified palette-wise in recent memory,” says Power. “The setting of the physical oil rig presented a very specific visual and sonic identity for me. The creaks and groans of the giant metal sculpture and how it is in a constant battle with the nature fed itself into the scoring process. This score is perhaps my most elemental to date and it was a joy to work on.”
The Rig synopsis: “When the crew of the North Sea stationed Kinloch Bravo oil rig is due to return to the mainland, a mysterious fog rolls in and cuts off communication with the outside world. The crew are then driven to the limits of their endurance and loyalties are forced into a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination.”
