Warning this scene is a spoiler if you haven’t seen the series ( UK viewers take note )
This scene is so sad even after working on this scene for hours i still cry at the end .
An interesting exercise is to watch it with and without music. It illustrates how much emotion music adds to cinema .
The cue is simple it’s just piano , controlled guitar feedback and echo , percussion and various vocal samples .

I 100% agree, this episode alone should win every TV show award going, it just about check every box. The song is amazing and just says a thousand words – I just can’t find the song anywhere!

Hi Alex thanks for your nice comments . This was the Ep I submitted my music for the Apra awards . I agree it is a moving episode . The next season is shaping up to be better again in writing . Which song are you talking about ? Do you mean the instrumental track when Debbie dies ? Richard

Yes, the final song when Debbie dies. I have had that episode on repeat for days, I just find it mesmerising!

Ok , well it isn’t a song as such , there are no words or singing . I wrote it just for that scene . Maybe I will fit some singing in one day. ( my wife likes to do this ) . They end up Pleasantville songs .

I agree with the earlier posters, this sequence is stunning and the music is quite perfect. I replay it over and over again. Well done.
