Today’s Video of the Day is Bear McCreary’s Theme from Defiance. You’ve heard Bear McCreary’s music before, most recently on Krypton Radio from the soundtrack he wrote for the amazing web series Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. His music also graces the popular zombie apocalypse series, The Walking Dead as well as the ill-fated The Cape.
Defiance, though, isn’t a movie, or a television series, or just a video game – it’s an unusual hybrid of all three. They’re calling it a “transmedia experience”.
Defiance tells the tale of a future Earth, and it’s an MMO that released just yesterday from Trion Games, but it’s also a series on SyFy Channel and the game and the TV series interconnect (admittedly in a way that the publicity is a little floaty about defining, but the creative content is something they share in common).
All that said, the music alone is the stuff that makes it onto the Krypton Radio playlist, and if you watch the video, you’ll see why.
