Press Release from Kronos:
Kronos Records is once again proud to champion another up and acoming composer from Spain; Sergio Jiménez Lacima, a prolific composer and conductor for films, TV, Video Games and Concert Music.
Viral is a 2013 horror / thriller film directed by Lucas Figueroa and starring Aura Garrido, Juan Blanco and Miguel Ángel Muñoz. Raul is The Chosen One to be the lowly reality star of a promotion and viral campaign for FNAC. The deal, He has to live 24 hours in the store for one week. The catch, his only contact with the outside world will be through social media where he will be known as the Supergeek. If the Supergeek generates 1.000.000 “likes” by week’s end he gets the prize of 50.000 €, enough to pay off lots of bills, parking tickets and help his sick father. Strange things start to happen and his online presence gets VIRAL!
For Viral composer Jiménez Lacima utilises a very American palette for the genre, however adding to it his own colours, that show his classical training and his eclectic musical tastes making of VIRAL standing out of the usual staple of the genre, arming it with dramatic and very personal moments that make this score shine where many others fail. The score was recorded in Hungary with the Budapest Art Orchestra under the direction of Peter Pejtsik.
