The Hidden Musical Gems Behind CBS’ “Blood & Treasure” Lie Within Composer Kyle Newmaster’s Live Orchestra
Kyle Newmaster has been a film, television, game, and concert stage composer for over 15 years. Blood & Treasure gave him the opportunity to write the classic orchestral sound for a modern-day score. Exactly the type of music that inspired him to become a composer.
For Blood & Treasure, an action-adventure drama from co-creators Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia of CBS’ Limitless, Newmaster was able to work with a union orchestra for episodes one and two and use many live players throughout the rest of the season. The musicians are the show’s hidden musical gems, escalating the music and story to another level.
The latest adventure series from CBS Blood & Treasure takes viewers around the world with antiquities expert Danny MacNamara (Matt Barr) and a cunning art thief, Lexi (Sofia Pernas). The series is forthright with its Indiana Jones comparisons and follows the two ex-lovers as they try to catch a notorious terrorist.
Newmaster shared, “For the score for Blood & Treasure, we were very fortunate to be able to utilize the skills of the AFM local 47 Los Angeles studio musicians. It’s such an amazing and gifted pool of talent, and they really helped bring the score to life. Everything from hard-driving action scenes to the most subtle emotional moments were performed with precision and the utmost musicality. I’m thankful to everyone who played on the score for their work and everything they did to enhance the sound of the show.”
