Just Keep Doing It


I love the Stranger Things soundtrack. I enjoyed hearing Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein share their insight on how the music for the show was created.

If you’re making music or doing any kind of art and you’re enjoying it, just keep doing it. Because we were in a band for like ten years and didn’t expect anything to happen. We were going to keep making music anyway because we liked doing it. And then one day we got this random email that changed our lives completely. So if you like something and it makes you happy somebody else probably does too, they just need to find it.

I learned:

  • Kyle and Michael were in a band named S U R V I V E. Their song Dirge was used in a mock trailer of the show.
  • The theme song was not arpeggiated. It was played by hand.
