The duo has now revealed some of the details and technique behind the award-winning composition in an interview with well-known music podcast series, SONG EXPLODER.
“The Duffers reached out to us ‘cause they used our music in a mock trailer,” said Stein on the pair’s relationship with the show’s creators (Matt and Ross Duffer).
“It was out of the blue… a random email with some cool words in it. Like Netflix, sci-fi or Winona Ryder,” the duo continued. “Of course we were interested!”
Over the 12-minute discussion, Stein and Dixon also explired the pitch process, the creative flow between the teams, gear selection (including Prophet-5, Mellotron, Roland SH-2, Sequential Circuits Pro-One) and ultimately sequencing the track and sound effects to enhance the title sequence.
The track did earn a creative Emmy this September for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.
