Creating the Sound of 'Revenge'
By DAVID WEINER
November 20, 2013
The intense drama and atmospheric tension of ABC's Revenge would be practically nil if it weren't for the show's incredibly inventive musical soundtrack to support the action. Now, we've got an exclusive look behind the scenes of the show with its composer Fil Eisler, aka iZLER. Watch the video!
From drawing inspiration on the set to literally sifting through junk to find just the right, surprisingly off-kilter sound to bolster Emily Van Camp, Madeleine Stowe and Gabriel Mann's performances, watch the intriguing and sometimes capricious musical process that Eisler navigates to elevate Revenge to the next level.
A Czech-born, English-raised composer and multi-instrumentalist, Eisler has been awarded with a 2013 BMI Award for his work on Revenge as well as Showtime's Shameless, and his credits also include ER, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Thief, and the indie films Growing Up and Other Lies.
Revenge airs Sundays on ABC at 9/8c. Season 1 & 2 are available on DVD now, as is the Revenge soundtrack album for both seasons.
