Today’s featured cue is from the science documentary Principles of Curiosity (2017), and serves as our musical introduction to host/narrator Brian Dunning. Brian wanted a big, traditional score for this documentary, to capture the sense of adventure and discovery inherent in the scientific process—and I was only too happy to oblige.

Writing in this style is always fun, and to do so for such a worthy cause is a real privilege.
