Posted on February 28, 2020 by Dan Goldwasser
Earlier this month composers Ken Corday and D. Brent Nelson recorded a new batch of cinematic cues for the newly renewed daytime drama, Days of Our Lives. Recording took place at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. Studios, featuring a 40-piece string ensemble.

"Why put cinema score in a daytime soap? It’s great fun to create and record and it gives the show an epic sense of grandeur and scope that we wouldn’t be able to achieve any other way," the composers said. "We have bold stories and when the big cue goes in the right spot it truly hits that scene out of the park."
