Here’s a short clip from episode 2 of the TV documentary show Evolution: The Grand Experiment that I finished scoring the music soundtrack for earlier this year. The show features some stunning nature footage and underwater photography (seen in the video here) and the soundtrack includes more orchestral arrangements as well as acoustic guitar, piano and atmospheric ambient music.
My music score for the documentary Evolution: The Grand Experiment (episode 1) has just won a Gold Medal for Excellence in Music for a Documentary Film at the 8th annual Park City Film Music Festival! I finished scoring episode 2 earlier this year which should be available soon.
The music for Evolution: The Grand Experiment features a wide range of styles and instrumentation from quirky orchestral plucked strings, woodwinds, percussion and other orchestral instruments to a more atmospheric ambient sound design approach.
The video clips above show some short examples featuring some of the music written for episode 1 of the documentary. The show has now aired on four television networks in Europe, four networks in North America and has been broadcast in 70 countries.
