Early Days: Television Soundtracks and the Emergence of EDM
A rewind to the 90s and early 2000s reveals a very different sonic landscape for television series, one largely dominated by pop, rock, and classical music. However, with the explosion of digital streaming platforms and the growing popularity of EDM, there has been a seismic shift in the nature of television soundtracks.
EDM’s Influence on Different TV Genres
TV series like “Mr. Robot,” a techno-thriller, were among the early adopters of EDM in their soundtracks. Its use of electronic music complemented the dark, dystopian world that the series portrayed. EDM not only added to the intensity of the scenes but also helped accentuate the series’ themes of hacking and digital disillusionment.
