Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the Austin, TX band S U R V I V E are the GRAMMY nominated duo behind the music of the 2016 Netflix original hit series Stranger Things. Now, as a result of their hard work, they have been invited by the GRAMMY Museum to discuss their creative process in writing for film and television. The two composed the whimsical, and at times eerie and preternatural tunes of the '80s themed series, touching on sounds and feelings from the era in which they were born. Their ethereal compositions are credited with promoting and bolstering the profile of the show, which is being called, “ (a) nostalgic ode to when John Carpenter and Steven Spielberg were the tastemakers of the horror/fantasy genre.”
Stranger Things creators, The Duffer Brothers, became fans of S U R V I V E’s work and their ability to repurpose and modernize classic synth and electronic sounds. As a result of this amalgamation, the Stranger Things soundtrack became one of the most talked about of 2016, even earning two GRAMMY nominations for Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media. It has been confirmed that Dixon and Stein will return to score Season 2 of the series, which is already in production.
The GRAMMY Museum’s evening with Dixon and Stein will take place at the Clive Davis Theater on July 19, 2017 at the GRAMMY MUSEUM at 800 W Olympic Blvd in Los Angeles, CA 90015. Tickets are $15 and go on sale June 29 at 10:30AM.
