Varese Sarabande released the soundtrack to Everest via digital retail and CD this past Friday. We sat down with composer, Dario Marianelli, to discuss his compositions on the soundtrack.
1. Describe The Everest soundtrack on Varese.
2. Did the director give you any interesting instructions or feedback to help you create the tonal palette?
A: My initial instinctive approach to the score, which the director liked and encouraged me to follow, was to have a calling voice, a distant siren call. It is at the same time a voice that represents the ancient goddess-like mountain, but also a luring and irresistible calling to one's own shipwreck.
