Just like last week, we’ve selected key scenes from last night’s Mad Men episode to illustrate the role sound design and music play in setting the tone for prestige TV (and because, well, it’s neat). Last night’s episode once again featured music by David Carbonara, with sound mixing by Peter Bentley, boom operation by Chris Sposa and Danny Greenwald, and other contributors including Alexandra Patsavas, Jenny Barak, Cormac Funge, Ken Teaney, Alec St. John, Edmond Coblentz, and Mark Cookson.
