Dan Romer has made a name for himself as both a big pop producer (with hit singles Shawn Mendes and A Great Big World/Christina Aguilera) as well as a renowned composer, having worked on acclaimed films such as BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, CHASING CORAL and shows like THE GOOD DOCTOR and ATYPICAL.
One of his latest projects is the score to the Netflix limited series MANIAC, which contains a number of inspired moments, the best being this piece from the series finale, “Annie and Owen”. Hints of Aaron Copland can be heard in the flittering Americana touches that move between whimsical and emotional as the track flows along like musical river. It’s a beautiful composition from an overall excellent score.
