TYLER BATES SCORES AMC’S ‘LOW WINTER SUN’


AMERICAN R&B LEGEND, BETTYE LaVETTE, PERFORMS MAIN TITLE THEME, CO-WRITTEN BY BATES, LaVETTE AND SHOW RUNNER CHRIS MUNDY

(August 9, 2013– Los Angeles, CA) – AMC’s new drama, “Low Winter Sun,” which is co-produced by Endemol Studios and AMC Studios, premieres on AMC Sunday, August 11 at 10:00pm ET/PT, will feature original music by composer Tyler Bates (Watchmen, TV’s Californication, God of War Ascension video game) and a performance by American R&B legend, Bettye LaVette.   The series, set in Detroit, features the new song “Hustlin’ In The Motor City,” co-written by Bates, Nan Vernon, series creator Chris Mundy, and Detroit soul legend Bettye LaVette who performs the song for the main title sequence.

For ”Low Winter Sun” Bates matched the gritty themes with a gritty sonic palette to heighten the tension of the story. Bates wrote a large volume of music during production – essentially creating a music library that the show’s editors have worked with from the beginning of post-production.  This approach has been Bates’ modus operandi in effort to shape the feel and pacing of the series with its distinctive sound.
