Everest- Visual Soundtrack – Dario Marianelli

Marianelli explains his creative process, and how it was composed in two distinctive ways; “My initial instinctive approach to the score, which our director, Baltasar Kormákur, 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 destiny.”

The second side of his approach focused on the climbers themselves; “The opposite point of the musical compass is the ‘conquering’ attitude of the mountaineers, a kind of macho, go-getting approach to nature, which is reflected in a much more propulsive, percussive and energetic musical idiom.”

The film itself will be released on September 25th Worldwide in standard format, 3D and IMAX 3D.

You can buy the Score here on AMAZON and I-TUNES.
