1. Describe your latest soundtrack on Varese?

This work has a very pastoral tone, even though we are depicting the end of the world, it takes place in the only part of the world unaffected by the apocalypse. Along with lush chamber strings and horns, there is also an subtle underlying tension developed by the use of electronic and acoustic manipulated sounds.

1. Describe your latest soundtrack on Varese?

The 12 Monkey score which I'm doing with my long time assistant Paul Linford, is a hybrid score of ethnic sounds, orchestra, and electronic, with a strong theme base.

5 Questions with Sergio Moure

Varese sat down with composer, Sergio Moure, for our regular 5 Questions feature.  His latest project for the soundtrack, Extinction, will release digitally on Aug 14th.  A limited edition physical release is scheduled for later this year.

1. Describe the Extinction soundtrack.
From the beginning, after reading the script, I knew I had a very important task when dealing with the emotions. Extinction is a story that delves into the deepest feelings, and I as a composer must reflect that. I wanted to make an emotional soundtrack, but also with some epic and rhythmic moments typical for the genre.
