3-Apr-2015 - Varèse Sarabande presents The Great Human Odyssey digitally on March 17 and on CD April 28, 2015. The film features original music by Darren Fung. “When Niobe Thompson [Director] first approached me about composing the score for The Great Human Odyssey, I have to admit, I was skeptical,” said Fung. “But when he showed me some of the rushes from his shoots in Siberia, my jaw hit the ground.” Three-part documentary series and interactive web documentary The Great Human Odyssey explores the unlikely survival and the miraculous emergence of Homo sapiens as the world’s only global species. Ancient climate research has revealed that we evolved during the most volatile era since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Just like the many other kinds of human who once shared our world, we should have died away. Instead, our species survived to populate every corner of the planet, against all the odds.

15-Feb-2015 - MovieScore Media travels to the Mediterranean with award-winning composer Panu Aaltio’s music for The Island of Secrets (Lomasankarit), a youth-oriented adventure film directed by Taavi Vartia. The contemporary adventure/action score pays homage to the classic 1980s blockbuster sound perfected by John Williams (the Indiana Jones films) and Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future). The music spans a great main theme for our teenaged heroes as their youthful vigor is mixed with a hint of Mediterranean-flavored escapism. “One of the main characters in the film dreams of becoming Indiana Jones when he grows up, so of course I had to play with that a bit”, explains the composer about his approach to the music.
