Ultimate Tutankhamun Decoded

July 4, 2013

*** July 2013 Update *****

The entire film is now available to watch online at PBS:


A terrific documentary that I scored last winter is airing in Canada and the U.S. next week: Secrets of the Dead: Ultimate Tut (U.S. title), also known as Tutankhamun Decoded (Canada). In composing the soundtrack, I enjoyed combining traditional Egyptian instruments, like Sonokinetic‘s Kemence, Sultan Strings and Desert Voice, with orchestral and electronic sounds, to underline the drama and the mystery of this story.

The documentary was produced by Handel Productions and Blink Films UK, and the host is Egyptologist Chris Naunton.

PBS: Secrets of the Dead: Ultimate Tut airs Wednesday, July 10 @ 8pm

History Channel Canada: Tutankhamun Decoded airs this Sunday, Jul 07 at 9pm, and Friday, Jul 12 @ 8pm
