The "Theme in Black" plays in many scenes featuring the Man in Black, in Locke's form, during the final season. The eight note motif is derived with melody and harmony originated from the Sarasangi scale of South Indian Classical Music. The melody notes are Eb F F Gb F A A Bb with harmony of triads consisting of Eb Gb Bb resolving to D F A in two different chord inversions.
