The ‘Seinfeld’ soundtrack to be officially released on all music streaming platforms. The 33-track album was composed by Jonathan Wolff and it will be released through WaterTower.
The show’s composer Jonathan Wolff said, “Was it the primary audio of a famous Seinfeld scene? Did it contribute in a significant way to the comedy of the scene? And upon hearing it, will it serve as an instantly identifiable signature and bring warm fuzzies to a Seinfeld fan who will remember that scene?”
He also explained, “The bass line was designed to stay in a frequency range that didn’t interfere with his voice. That slap-bass sound could start and stop to make audio holes for the timing of his jokes and his punchlines. It served as a kind of old-vaudeville rimshot for his jokes.”
Then he concluded, “It meant I was going to have to rebuild each piece of music for each monologue, to fit the timings and lengths, but that was OK with me. It helped give a signature to the show.”
