New from MovieScore Media...
The latest offering of MovieScore Media is Andrew Lockington’s animated adventure score from the film Pirate’s Passage, produced, co-written and voiced by Donald Sutherland. Based on the novel by William Gilkerson, the story follows mysterious seadog Captain Johnson (Sutherland) who takes up residence at the inn of Kerstin Hawkins (Carrie-Anne Moss) and her son, Jim (Gage Munroe). When he offers his candid knowledge on local pirates for a school project, Jim realizes that the Captain didn’t gather his knowledge from books – he was there to witness the events. In the meantime, the duo must also face competition from a modern day pirate, the greedy Mr. Moehner (Kim Coates) whose machinations endanger the whole community.
MovieScore Media continues its search for unique sci-fi scores with its latest release, After The World Ended with music by London-based composer Nikolas Labrinakos. Written and directed by Tony Sebastian Ukpo, the film tells three interconnected stories set some 500 years in a distant, dystopian future. The storylines are focused on an astronaut who crashes in the middle of nowhere, a young woman in search of her family in an abandoned urban wasteland and a prisoner who is preparing for a dangerous space program that will make him the first human being on Mars.
MovieScore Media takes a trip to outer space with the seven movement concert work From Earth to Mars: A Symphonic Journey and two other pieces, Gate of Creation and El Rostro de la Luna. The centerpiece was first performed in December 2000 and was Arturo Rodríguez’s first professionally commissioned composition, ordered by The Kennedy Center / Imagination Celebration Fort Worth. By depicting the trip of the first human colony to Mars through the power of music, Rodríguez wrote seven movements of orchestral majesty in the style of his favorite ’80s sci-fi scores and composers such as John Williams, James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith. The recording on the album is performed by 80 musicians (and choir) of The New Millennium Philharmonic Orchestra.
