Above & Beyond and Darren Tate are creating the music for the next film


Above & Beyond have announced that they have teamed up with Darren Tate to create the score for The last glaciers!

Progressive Trance Superstars Above and beyond and boss of Mondo Records Darren Tate have worked hard in the studio together to manifest a truly game-changing set of beats. In fact, it may be their most telling project to date, one that everyone should pay close attention to. At tuesday march 22also known as world water dayAbove & Beyond’s first-ever cinematic score is about to be released, and it’s for a full-length documentary titled The last glaciers.

As you can tell by the title, the documentary is a call to action on the worsening climate crisis, directed and produced by Craig Leeson (award winning filmmaker An ocean of plastic), Malcolm Wood, Guillaume Pfiefferand Katrina Razon. The aim was to deepen the warning that without a combination of globally coordinated solutions over the next ten years, we are all in deep trouble; The alarm was sounded by top climatologists from organizations such as NASA, the UN, Arctic Basecamp, INAIGEM and ICIMOD. Without wasting time, The last glaciers The team embarked on a four-year journey to explain climate science through a visually stunning story of our world’s melting glaciers.

It was an honor to be asked by Craig to compose the score for “The Last Glaciers”. For the musical direction, we felt it was important that the score reflect the beauty of our changing planet that Craig had elegantly captured. Stylistically, we wanted to combine our largely electronic musical background with a live orchestra to create a hybrid score. It was important to us that the score reflect both the challenges facing the world today and those Craig faces as an individual and a filmmaker during filming. In addition to conveying a sense of urgency, we wanted the score to strike an upbeat tone and encourage a positive call to action from the viewer.

Throughout the film, you’ll be taken to explore impacted regions like Antarctica, the Himalayas, the Alps, and the Andes, where the disappearance of ice is nothing short of terrifying, likely impacting the increase extreme weather events. Featuring interviews with people who have been impacted first-hand, including a cheese maker in Nepal, as well as discussions with changemakers who have immersed themselves in Greta Thunberg, you will be greeted with ideas and ways to be part of the solution. So, as we celebrate this major milestone in film music for Above & Beyond, we suggest you head over to IMAX for an educational experience that may well change the way we treat our fragile planet.

I am very happy to be part of this project because the message could not be more important (nor more urgent). Our planet is in peril and across the globe action must be taken. In terms of the score, we wanted to convey the challenges that Craig faced, not only making this movie and getting the message across, but also the physical challenges that he had to go through. support; while enjoying the magnificence of the glaciers in all their beauty and the awe-inspiring cinematography. We wanted broad, triumphant themes (reminiscent of Horner, Silvestri, Goldsmith and Williams) that represented his determination to do so; underlined by percussion and electronica which reinforce the seriousness of the task at hand. We also wanted to paint a picture of hope; like the theme that plays when the kids protest at the very end; reminding us that there is still time if we take decisive action now.
