Taboo's Theme SongEdit

Taboo-promotional poster

The theme is called "Taboo", and was written by composer Max Richter who also wrote the score (background music) for the entire series. The theme sounds a bit different from week to week. In the first episode, the theme music was played on an instrument called a celeste, which resembles a piano but makes a sound more like glockenspiel (albeit with a slightly softer noise). However, future weeks used a string arrangement instead, with the childlike celeste version only returning for the finale. [1]
