Blake Neely and Sherri Chung score Blindspot
Posted on January 19, 2018 by Dan Goldwasser
Composer Blake Neely and his Cow on the Wall Studios team are some of the busiest composers working in television today, scoring eight television shows. Amazingly, they record three of them with live orchestra, weekly. The first one we look at is for the NBC television series Blindspot, composed by Blake Neely and Sherri Chung. ScoringSessions.com is delighted to bring our readers exclusive photos from one of the sessions!
Composer Sherri Chung conducts the strings
Recording for Blindspot takes place at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. where co-composer Sherri Chung conducts a 15-piece string ensemble, which is mixed in on top of the synth elements of the score.
