From mid-2019 to mid-2021 I produced four albums of music for the popular YouTube science channel Veritasium, often made whilst in the middle of editing, animating, and co-writing the videos!
The major challenge in musical scoring work is figuring out how to add an emotional context without distracting from the story. Veritasium scores heightened that constraint, demanding music to provide an emotional component to otherwise cerebral content, without distracting from the learning at hand
There are some fun easter eggs throughout, for instance - the music in "The Infinite Pattern That Never Repeats" mostly counts in 5/8, a hat-tip to the 5-fold symmetries discussed in the video!
Take a listen, add to your work/thinking playlists, enjoy!
It's been a delight to see people adding these songs to their playlists, and a particular delight seeing my songs reccomended to listeners of an all-time musical hero, Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails!
