Portishead’s Geoff Barrow has signed on to score the soundtrack to the new series of Charlie Brooker’s ‘Black Mirror’, which will this time air over there on the Netflixes.

Barrow will work with his regular collaborator Ben Salisbury on the project, the duo having previously worked together on soundtracks for a number of films, including the upcoming Ben Wheatley-directed ‘Free Fire’ and the in-production Alex Garland movie ‘Annihilation’.

On his decision to take the satirical drama series, which previously aired on Channel 4, over to video-on-demand platform Netflix, Brooker recently said: “Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that ‘Black Mirror’ feel”.
