gunpowder (original soundtrack)
music on vinyl
the pianist and composer is in his richest form with his dark music for this bbc/hbo series on the gunpowder plot.
Written by Ronan Bennet (Top Boy) and directed by J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) Gunpowder, a three-part thriller based on the 17th century events that led to Guy Fawkes Day, stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as Robert Catesby, who was the driving force behind the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 London. the score recalls deaf centre and even the haxan cloak in its eerie beauty – a welcome surprise for this usually most beatific of musicians.
