Dominic Lewis, composer on: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, Disney XD’s upcoming “Duck Tales," and on the first two seasons of Amazon’s THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE returns to score season 3 of the popular streaming series.
The Man in the High Castle is based on Philip K. Dick's award-winning novel and explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States. Season three of the Emmy award-winning series finds Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) grappling with her destiny after seeking safety in the Neutral Zone. Realizing that their fates are intertwined, she works with Trade Minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) to interpret the mystery of the last remaining films. Season 3 of The Man in the High Castle debuted on October 5, 2018 exclusively on Amazon’s Prime Video platform.
In the last episode of The Annotator, Lewis opened up his work for seasons 1 and 2, but here he reveals how his score for season 3 has continued to evolve while still making subtle references to thematic material introduced in the earlier seasons. Dominic Lewis talks through three pieces he wrote for season 3. He opens up on how he continues to develop thematic material introduced in previous seasons and finally, in his climactic piece of the season 3 finale, he details a number of components and processes he utilized to evoke a sense of mystery and danger.
