Editors’ Notes Like the material it was written to complement, Adam Taylor’s soundtrack for Hulu’s adaptation of the dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale feels at once familiar and futuristic, hushed but deeply haunted. Sometimes, Taylor’s warping synthesizers and steadily mounting sense of dread capture the feel of an ‘80s slasher movie (“Chased”). At other times (“Ofglen and Offred”), it sounds like the lost hymn of an 18th-century period piece—a powerful (and at times powerfully unsettling) blend.
