TV Review: ‘The Art of More’

TV Review: ‘The Art of More’
An auction house certainly sounds like a logical setting for big money, sex and larceny, which doesn’t prevent Crackle’s first full-length scripted drama series, “The Art of More,” from coming across as strangely inert. A couple of recognizable stars (Dennis Quaid, who doubles as a producer, and Kate Bosworth) have been cast as a promotional enticement, but not in particularly inspired roles, while the central figure is so tangled in cliches, it’s a wonder he can stumble from scene to scene. Everyone wants to get into the premium-drama game, it seems, but after watching six episodes, “More” is less.

Christian Cooke (“Magic City”) stars as Graham Connor, an Iraq war vet who began trafficking in stolen artifacts, and now in roundabout fashion has parlayed that into a junior position at Parke-Mason, a high-class auction house. Cocky and eager to advance, he’s courting a billionaire real-estate tycoon

Exclusive: Two tracks from Mario Sévigny’s The Art of More score

Thanks to Crackle, we’ve got our hands on two exclusive tracks by composer Mario Sévigny for the upcoming drama series The Art of More, entitled ‘Trespassing Sacred Land’ and ‘Roxanna’s Ambitions’.

The Art of More is an amazing show for a composer,” states Sévigny. All of the show’s intros are in a different time period, so it was very stimulating, creativity wise, to find themes of the 60’s or even 1700 to explain where the piece of art was coming from. During the track ‘Trespassing Sacred Land’ two of the characters are being pursued in the woods, so I had to keep the suspense up. To do this I added Native American flutes with a rushing percussion on top of electronic beats. This scene ended up being a lot of fun to compose because of all the diverse instruments and sounds I got to experiment with.”
