Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records presents the mammoth symphonic score of Fernando Velázquez (Ozzy, Zipi y Zape y el Club de la Canica, Marrowbone) for the animated movie directed by Julio Soto.
In 2100, when humanity has abandoned the earth, a colony of extraordinary creatures still thrives in the deepest abyss of the ocean. Deep, an adventurous, “Dumbo” octopus and the last one of his kind lives there with his two unconditional friends: Evo, a nerdy and clumsy angler fish, and Alice, a neurotic deep-sea shrimp. When an accident destroys their home, the guardian of the abyss, The Kraken, send Deep and his friends on a perilous journey to find a new home. In their mission, they will be joined by Maura—a voracious moray eel—and together they will travel to amazing places like the submerged city of New York, the Titanic and the Arctic, facing formidable enemies and hilarious situations. Will they be able to bring the oceans back to their former glory?
Fernando Velázquez’s orchestral tour de force includes a memorable main theme, but also encompasses a fresh, dynamic score—nearly 80 minutes of tunes, motifs, adventure, tension, mystery, action music, wondrous melodic themes—even three songs with music and lyrics by the composer—all colorfully orchestrated and beautifully performed by the Abisol Symphony Orchestra.
