:: a new music guide by DJ & music supervisor Tricia Halloran ::

fargo sized#MusicMonday AND Emmy night, seems like an appropriate time for a Fargo Music Wrap-Up since they received SEVENTEEN Emmy nominations, second only to Game Of Thrones. Fargo was an absolute delight to work on, it was somewhat magical how everything came together each and every episode — which is not to say it wasn’t a lot of hard work by everyone in the Post department, editors, sound designers, mixers, vfx and producers alike! We were always very conscious of keeping the tone consistent and not breaking the Fargo ‘spell’, to that end we relied heavily on Jeff Russo’s gorgeous score which was recorded by musicians in Prague – in the same room where Einstein first presented his theory of relativity! See what I mean about magical? Go here if you want more info about the score, and read on for the list of songs that we licensed for the TV Series.

Licensed Songs in Fargo Season 1, Episodes 5-10 (I split the season with music supervisor Michael Perlmutter, but if you have questions about the first few eps I can probably track down an answer for you, try me on Twitter @bnwtricia.)
