Frederik Wiedmann - The Dragon Prince [Season 1]

Frederik Wiedmann has composed for over 40 projects spanning multiple genres. He has written music for films such as HANGMAN (starring Al Pacino), Stoic (with Antonio Banderas) and the civil war epic FIELD OF LOST SHOES. He has also written original scores for countless DC animated shows and features such as: GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX, SON OF BATMAN and many others. One of his latest musical projects is for Netflix’s popular original animated series, THE DRAGON PRINCE.

Netflix debuted its exclusive series in late 2018. The story is set in the magical land of Xadia, where magic comes from six primal sources: the sun, moon, stars, sky, earth and ocean. When humans create a seventh -- dark magic -- war is sparked between Xadia and the Human Kingdoms. Three children from opposite sides of the conflict discover a secret that could change everything and decide to join forces and go on an epic journey. That trek could be their only hope of ending the war and restoring peace to both worlds.

In this episode, Frederik Wiedmann talks about what project opened the door for him into the world of animation and eventually to THE DRAGON PRINCE. He also reveals the importance of the series’ main theme and the palette of instruments he would use to convey this fantastic world. Lastly, he walks us through one of his original demo-pieces and the climactic piece for season one.
