Inspired by the great podcast Song Exploder, the crew invites composer Brendan Ryan to unpack his original score for Mission to Zyxx. As we work away on the final episodes of the show, this episode will answer all your burning questions about the music of the Freshest quadrant. How do you “plane” a chord? Which direction does a French horn point? And did Brendan’s high school Band open for Justin Timberlake? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s if you dare to venture behind the muzyxx.
About the show
