“A charming and emotional sounding score that is overflowing with passion and compassion, the composer utilising a symphonic approach which at times is luxurious and lavish.” (Movie Music International)
Mosley (Alain Mayrand)
Original score from the 2019 animated adventure film directed by Kirby Atkins, featuring the voices of Temuera Morrison, Lucy Lawless and Rhys Darby, produced by Huhu Studios and released by Saban Films (USA).
THE STORY: A species of creatures known as “thoriphants” rebel against their life of servitude and embark on a treacherous journey to find the fabled city of Uprights. mute boy is trapped in his apartment with a sinister monster when he makes a wish to fulfill his heart’s greatest desire.
THE SCORE: “Kirby Atkins, writer and director of Mosley, wanted a traditional orchestral score that was thematic and memorable. For this he provided the perfect cinematic canvas for the music to become part of the story. The main theme is for Mosley’s family, the reason for his quest. This family theme, when performed softly, is tender and heartfelt, but becomes sweeping and grand when taken by the full orchestra. Another important theme is for Kinesareth, the object of Mosley’s quest. This theme can be both mystical or filled with adventure. The score also includes Rue’s theme with its playful winds, Gailin’s gentle and magical theme, and the dark brassy dissonance of Warfield’s theme, the story’s main villain. A favourite part of the score is a motivic element that develops throughout the film to reach its final form at the very end: the fireflies. What ties it all together is the main tone of the score: grand, warm, a little bit magical and never too fast, just like the Thoriphans themselves. It was a true pleasure to be part of the storytelling for Mosley and to be given the chance to write for such endearing characters and beautifully told story.” – Alain Mayrand
