This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.
No news on a soundtrack release execpt for the main titles music (which is amazing, I might add), but if you love the music of Outlander as much as I do, the composer, Bear McCreary, has detailed the creation of the music on his blog!
Having grown up singing and playing the viola for most of my life, I’m very interested in how composers come up with song ideas. Of course, I’m terrible at coming up with my own, so I’ll just have to watch and listen for now. Only the first two episodes have their own posts right now, but I hope we get a few more as the season progresses. You can read the posts here if you’re interested.
Fingers crossed a soundtrack gets released for the show. The music makes me feel like I’ve gone back in time, which is the whole point, I suppose.
