Music For “Fringe”: Introducing Composer Chris Tilton

TV-shows by director, producer and writer J.J. Abrams have something in common. Apart from the brilliant writing, building of complex story arcs and shifting perspectives – in time and space – it’s the music. Remember the orchestrated sounds combined with spare electronics that made the show “Lost” even more thrilling? It’s composed by J.J. Abrams long-time collaboraters Michael Giacchino and Chris Tilton.

Chris Tilton took over full musical duties for the sci-fi series “Fringe” during its second season. And when this great show comes back for the last and fifth run in September the music will be by Mr. Tilton again.

Here’s a track called “Good Ol’ Charlie” from the Soundtrack to the show’s second season. It combines a lot of the elements the music to “Fringe” consists of. Melody, rhythm and melancholy.
