Original TV Soundtrack

RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 19 January 2018

Lakeshore Records release the Black Mirror: Black Museum original soundtrack. The album features original music by composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer. The Black Museum episode is presented as a series of three stories told by Rolo Haynes, proprietor of the remote "Black Museum" to his solitary visitor Nish, all involving various exhibits related to cutting edge technological connections and transfers with the human brain that Rolo had developed in his career...

I was surprised by how much I embraced this incredibly dark, and intensely eerie score. I'm not usually a fan of atmospheric music of this nature, but Cristobal Tapia de Veer (Humans; Utopia) builds such an impressive soundscape that it's almost impossible not to get caught up in what he delivers.

Yes, in truth, all of the album's 21 tracks (47 min, 39 sec) merge into one industrial romp, but it's quite a ride. While there are no real "themes" in the conventional sense, the album acts as a bit of a head trip - weird noises vie for your attention and you're constantly wondering what each new sound is.

Even if you don't usually enjoy atmospheric music cue based scores, I'd recommend you at least give this a listen. While it's not the sort of album that you can easily relax to, it's engaging and attention grabbing and certainly worthy of your time.
