I wanted to show some love to two composers who do a great job on making music that captures the essence of being a Pirate and selling in the Caribbean.
One of them is Brian Tyler who composed music for one of the best pirate games, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. He’s also done a lot work for big hollywood movies such as Iron Man 3 and The Expendables. He makes amazing use of drums.
Bear McCreary helps captures the feeling of sailing on the high seas for the show, Black Sails. He also composes for The Walking Dead. He doesn’t mind incorporating some heavy guitar into pieces such as with the theme of Black Sails.
If you haven’t seen Black Sails, You should definitely check it out. It gets better with every episode. The Cast and Production Designer do a great job. First season was a bit slow, but the 2nd season will blow you right out the water. I can’t believe i’m cosigning something Michael Bay (executive producer) is involved in, but he and Starz are doing well with this series. It’s still pretty underrated as of now. It has the potential to be one of the shows everyone watches, so check it out.
