Soundtrack drops Aug. 28
(Burbank, CA) Milan Records releases the soundtrack from Season 1 of the hit Showtime Original series “Dexter,” featuring music by composer Daniel Licht on August 28. Along with Licht’s score, the soundtrack features the theme song by Rolfe Kent and a diverse collection of songs from the first season of the hit TV program. The first season DVD hits stores August 21. Licht’s talent and experience allowed the composer to create a unique sound for “Dexter,” as his music contributes an eerie yet ironic pulse to the show. Licht has already begun work on Season 2 of “Dexter” which premieres September 30.
Based on Jeff Lindsay’s novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter, the show tells the story of protagonist Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) and his life as a forensic blood spatter for the Miami Dade Police Department. Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Dexter hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don’t get away with a crime again. The series won TV Program of the Year at AFI in 2006 as well as four IGN awards and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor.
Dan Licht has been writing music for film and television for over twenty years.

Licht has also written the music for several TV series including “Jake in Progess,” and “Kitchen Confidential.” Most recently, Licht was awarded the BMI TV music award for his work on the first season of “Dexter.”
