Episode 12 : Resurrection
|Royal Wood is best known for piano-driven songs with cabaret-style melodies in the style of Rufus Wainright and Jeff Buckley, and his song, “The Wonder”, plays over an emotional montage near the end of the episode. Also featured is Rob Carli, the second score composer for ReGenesis, whose classical orchestrations work so well in the more sentimental scenes in the show.|
Episode 11 : The Promise
|Toronto-based singer-songwriter Laurel MacDonald has studied the singing traditions of various world cultures, particularly the choral and Gaelic traditions. Her multilayered voice, combined with the varied and eclectic instrumentation in “Green Chapel”, create a richly textured soundscape that works perfectly against picture.|
Episode 10 : The Source
From electronic beats to indigenous drums, the music of Tel-Aviv-based Angel Tears ranges from clubby to tribal and all points in between. Their Asian and Middle-Eastern vocals lend a spiritual quality to many of the songs, and “Dmaot Malach” is no exception.
Also featured are the upbeat Latin soul, electronica and pop/rock sounds of “Narco Traffico” by Latin Soul Syndicate.
Episode 9 : The Secret War
|An exclusive interview with Tom Third, the music composer for ReGenesis whose songs and remixes have been featured prominently throughout the ReGenesis:ReMixed podcast. Tom goes over some of his favourite scenes from the show and how he built the music around them, discusses the unique challenges of writing for a television series like ReGenesis, and talks about the music you’ll hear in the upcoming second season of the ReGenesis TV series.|
Episode 8 : Blackout
“The Past Is Never Past” is a sentimental, bittersweet song by singer Andrea Revel, whose music is a blend of folk-pop with light, electronic beats. If her voice sounds familiar, that’s because she’s also the vocalist on the ReGenesis theme that opens each show, a song she also co-wrote.
Also featured are the ethereal vocals and moody instrumentation of Kristy Thirsk on “Home For Angels”, definitely a musical highlight from the TV series.”
