Utopia Series 1 Vinyl

Double yellow vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.

Chilean composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer's original music for Channel 4’s ultra-violent masterpiece Penned by Dennis Kelly (Matilda the Musical), Utopia is a domestic thriller that can equal the current output of American television. The six part series revolves around a group of graphic novel fans who discover a terrible secret. Stylish, intelligent and cinematic the show has now been confirmed for a second series in 2014.

Based in Canada the composer delivered a much praised score for the BBC production The Crimson Petal And The White and then moved to London for six months to complete as he says, "six months of guerilla composition" for Utopia. Critically acclaimed, the score features instruments ranging from a rare Chilean trutruka recorded in Borough tube station to the percussion sounds of a rhino turd from Zimbabwe. This is one of the most eclectic and innovative scores in a long while.
