Manners McDade’s Jon Opstad Scores New Series, The Feed

Creative 113 Add to collection

Opstad's recent work includes five-part BBC period drama The Woman in White and composing music for Ubisoft Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Manners McDade’s Jon Opstad Scores New Series, The Feed

Based on the novel by Nick Clark Windo, the ten-part British psychological thriller drama (starring Guy Burnet, David Thewlis, Michel Fairley and Shaquille Ali-Yebuah) portrays a dystopian future, in which technology is integrated with the human brain.

Created and written by Channing Powell (The Walking Dead), Jon Opstad scored the series, supported by music editor Lindsay Wright, mix engineer Goetz Botzenhardt and David Foster as orchestrator. His score combined classical elements with a progressive approach to electronic music which utilised a string orchestra, analogue synthesisers, vocals and electric guitars, as Jon describes:

“To score this musically I drew on a lot of different elements on a spectrum from purely electronic (the technological) to purely acoustic (the human/emotional).”

Jon’s ‘Ignis IV’ was recently used as the score for the Ad Astra film trailer starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones. His other recent work includes the five-part BBC period drama The Woman in White (Jessie Buckley, Dougray Scott, Charles Dance and Art Malik); and composing all new music since early 2018 for the Ubisoft video game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

For more information on Jon’s composition process check out his interview with M Magazine here.

The Feed premieres tonight on Virgin TV Ultra HD, 9pm. The series will also be available on Amazon Prime Video (release date is yet to be confirmed).
