Quarry Q&A: Composer Kris Dirksen on Capturing the Sound of the Series

28 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Cinemax's gritty drama Quarry is a rollercoaster ride of emotions not only for its main characters Mac and Joni, but for its audience as well.

For the audience, the music heightens those emotions, adding to the intense drama taking place on screen. Composer Kris Dirksen is the guy responsible for creating that dramatic sound.

In addition to composing for Quarry, Dirksen also worked on Banshee, and his music can be heard in hundreds of movie and TV show trailers, including Mad Max: Fury Road, Sicario, The Revenant, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and more.

We put some questions to Kris about his life as a composer and what it's like scoring for a show like Quarry.

Take a look at what he had to say below, and be sure to tune in for Quarry Season 1 Episode 8, the season finale, airing tonight on Cinemax at 10/9c!

The news of Williams hanging up his bass comes during a tumultuous time for the group.

Not because we’ve lost Mal (Malcolm Young), Phil or Brian. Everything changes,” Williams said. “I’m ready to get off the road and do what I do in between tours…It's just my time.
