The Dark Crystal

Age of Resistance


Return to the world of Thra, where three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis' power, and set out to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world. TV series for Netflix, prequel to the original cult movie by Jim Henson & Frank Oz from the 1980s.

I created unique sampler instruments along with custom Kontakt engines to match the incredible, magical universe developed for the series. Original score is a combination of more traditional orchestral instruments with less commonly used nickelharpa, custom percussion and rare flutes, often re-sampled and turned into unusually-sounding electronic instruments.

Score composed and produced by Daniel Pemberton.
