As part of my MA in Music composition for the moving image, I created a demo track that I could share with the rest of the class, as well as use as part of my portfolio. I decided that I wanted to create a track against the Blue Planet. I love watching the Blue Planet documentaries, the combination of fantastic visuals and compelling narratives has created a breathtaking series that always leaves me wanting more.
As it was part of my MA course, the challenge I set myself was to create a soundtrack that borders the traditional epic music that would be expected for this type of project, works with the characteristics of the animals and supports the narrative of the visuals.
I hope that you enjoy it!
