Netflix is excited to announce the release of Web of Make Believe: Death, Lies & the Internet (Soundtrack From the Netflix Series) with music by composer John Dragonetti. The 21-track album is available now on major digital platforms.
Dragonetti created a unique soundscape using an antique piano, creating interesting percussive sounds, as well as an old metal fan, hitting it to create a reverb. Those sounds were the basis for a lot of the drum tracks in the score. Director Brian Knappenberger gave Dragonetti a lot of creative freedom, allowing him to experiment in new and exciting ways.
“A lot of the music doesn’t sound like your usual documentary score. I got a lot of inspiration from music and bands that I’ve loved over the years that aren’t necessarily film music…channeling psychedelic textures with post punk and 80s British synth music,” says Dragonetti.
Director Brian Knappenberger says of the score, “John Dragonetti’s stunning soundtrack for Web of Make Believe is an explosion of musicality that lands us – poignantly – in the sweet spot of this age of chaotic misinformation. Experimental but familiar, it is a drumbeat for humans searching for truth in the technological whirlwind. And like the high note you barely hear at first but becomes more present, there is hope. After all we are emotional creatures stepping into the void of an uncertain future, but it’s going to be okay.”
From Oscar-winning executive producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind”), this docuseries helmed by acclaimed director Brian Knappenberger (“The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez”) tells harrowing true stories of the internet age.
