Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for the documentary Deep Web digitally on November 20, 2015. The album features the film's original score by Pedro Bromfman.
"Deep Web is about technology, the internet, hackers, cyber crime, encryption, etc... its characters are brilliant individuals, pushing the boundaries of technology, whether you consider some of them libertarians or criminals," said Bromfman. "The idea was to address those themes in the music and Alex Winter, Deep Web's director, and I agreed we needed an electronic score to underline the tech element at the core of the film. We wanted the electronic elements that populate the score, the synthesizers, pulses, mallets and processed strings, to sound deep and alive. We used technology and synthesizers but we were attempting to create an organic sounding score."
"I needed to constantly remind myself of the importance of scoring the human element of the film," Bromfman explained. "Deep Web looks at cyber crime / cyber security and we can forget we're dealing with real individuals, like Ross Ulbricht, a 30 year-old man who may be going to jail for the rest of his life. Cyber law is still in its infancy, some of the legal precedent being established in these early lawsuits and trials, may affect the lives and privacy of generations to come. It was really important for the music to highlight the human element throughout the film, reason why Deep Web has a very personal and emotional score, albeit haunting and dark."
Deep Web is now available on iTunes and VOD.
