Press Release from MovieScore Media:
An epic fantasy score featuring a traditional symphonic orchestra, choir and an assortment of exotic instruments which transports its listeners to the magical kingdom of Albion. This is the latest collaboration between MovieScore Media and composer George Kallis (Gagarin: First in Space, 93 Days) entitled Albion: The Enchanted Stallion, a magical fantasy movie co-written and directed by Castille Landon. The film follows the adventures of a twelve-year-old girl who gets transported to the mystical world of Albion with the help of a magical black stallion. Upon arrival, she discovers that she alone is the key to saving an entire race of people. Like all great film scores of the Golden Age, Kalli’s music for Albion is a powerful and magical listening experience even without the visuals.
”Director Castille Landon and producer Dori Rath wanted the soundtrack to audibly transport audiences into the ancient land of Albion, therefore my job was to encapsulate this exact idea and take listeners into a mythological journey” explains the composer. “I aimed to create a magical sonic world by use of swelling orchestral themes for our leads, sinister motifs for the villains and choral arrangements and world instrumentation to capture the Albion terrane.” The enchanted fantasy score ranges from the thundering “Riding to Albion” through the Medieval tranquility of of “The River and the Palace” to the epic, choir-heavy conclusion of “Release the Barrier” – offering en exhilarating ride as if the listener has the chance to get on the back of the black stallion.
