Ben Frost ‘Dark: Cycle 3 (Original Music From The Netflix Series)’ LP
Invada Records and Lakeshore Records release ‘Dark: Cycle 3 (Original Music from the Netflix Series)’ by Australian composer Ben Frost.
Frost’s strikingly menacing soundscapes have provided a foreboding backdrop to the surreal German thriller for three seasons. In this third and final cycle, Frost’s score evolves beyond the sharp string orchestrations of the first cycle and the percussive distortion of the second, towards a sea of disintegrated brass and woodwind arrangements and Eno-inspired ambience.
The LP is pressed on sand coloured vinyl and housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with fold out poster. Also included is a digital download card which features the full score plus nine bonus tracks only available with the vinyl purchase.
In the third and final season, ‘Dark’ - one of Netflix’s most watched shows of all time - reaches its mind-bending conclusion, moving beyond the concept of space and time. Upon arrival in a new world, Jonas tries to make sense of what this rendition of Winden means for his own fate, while the ones left behind in the other world are left on a quest to break the loop that now not only bends time but also space. Two worlds. Light and dark. And in the centre a tragic love story of epic proportions.
