Rangers of the Lost Ring (Panu Aaltio)
Original score from the 2023 family adventure feature film (original title: Pertsa ja Kilu: Faaraon sormus) directed by Taavi Vartia, starring Pauli Kesälä, Leon Ruokola and Alina Tomnikov, produced by Taavi Vartia Tuotannot and released by Nelonen Media (Finland).
THE STORY: A movie about the power of friendship and courage during an exciting and thrilling adventure. A story about growing up, the fear of loss and finding yourself.
THE SCORE: “I’m always looking for new angles to take on in film scores, so when director Taavi Vartia suggested I use an electric guitar on Rangers of the Lost Ring, I had a ton of fun going on a journey from modern rock through 80s action movies, to even the Bond movies of the 60s. And then with the Budapest Art Orchestra beautifully performing many of our soaring adventure moments, I really got to play with many wonderful timbres in this score.” – Panu Aaltio
