Composer, Dominik Scherrer (The Serpent, Baptiste, The Widow)
In this episode, Sam is joined by composer, Dominik Scherrer. They discuss his work for Netflix crime drama The Serpent, whilst also diving into Dominik's journey into music and his career so far.
With the Serpent, the majority of the series takes place in Bangkok, with the rest taking place in various locations, including: Hong Kong, Paris, New Zealand, and New York. Dominik composed a lot of the score on location in Bangkok and took inspiration from the urban, epic, and sinister feel that the city encapsulates. A portion of the score was recorded in Thailand – rhythm sections, drums, gongs, and other Thai instruments — all of which Dominik sampled to create more of a risqué sound to match the tone of the series.
"Dominik Scherrer has created award-winning music for some of the finest film and television dramas in recent years. He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for the critically-acclaimed series The Missing, and recently won his second Ivor Novello Award for his score on Netflix’s Requiem, which he co-composed with Natasha Khan, aka Bat for Lashes."
