Original Score for Netflix's Cult Docuseries <I>Wild Wild Country</i> to Receive Vinyl Release This Fall

The emotion-pushing music accompanying Netflix’s docuseries Wild Wild Country is now being pulled out of its visual context for an LP, due out Sept. 21 via Western Vinyl. If you haven’t heard of Wild Wild Country, it’s a six-part documentary series that came out earlier this year and follows the story of the Neo-sannyasin cult that transplanted into Oregon in 1981. The founded town of Rajneeshpuram, named for leader and Indian guru Baghwan Shree Rajneesh, caused strife with the neighboring small town of Antelope.

So while you’re watching this enrapturing series, its composer Brocker Way is layering in the emotional undertones beneath the images, subtly guiding the narrative. (A family affair, Brocker’s brothers Chapman and Maclain directed the series.) Brocker’s vignettes invite listeners into the score’s own world, where the interviewees’ outlooks are reflected and can be experienced on their own.

“This kind of music gives us an idea as to the motives of each talking head, without actually scoring the motives of the character, and hopefully entices us as the audience to take the journey with them,” Way said. “When the Rajneeshees are building their town, you get to feel that and be right there with them.”
