The Deep (Music from the Original TV Series)
A Stark Production’s ‘The Deep‘, directed by Trent Carlson and produced by Avrill Stark, is based on the Aurealis Award-winning graphic novel series from writer Tom Taylor and illustrator James Brouwer. The soundtrack release closely followed announcements of a new agreement to create a 4D theatrical experience and the release of the show’s Season 2 debut on Netflix US, where all 13 episodes launched on September 22nd 2017.
“What a privilege to be scoring the music for The Deep! From dangerous uncharted waters to unexplored depths of the ocean, we experience the emotions of discovering the mysterious and magical, and sometimes mystical. Sometimes the underwater encounters are filled with tension, awe and wonder and other times simply filled with a sense of beauty. The Deep also has moments of high1sea adventure, perilous races against time, uncertainty, threat, jeopardy, and heroism. These moments are balanced with feelings of mischief and exhilaration, plus the heart1felt warmth and playfulness of family dynamics.
I have tried to musically create a colourful underwater world which ebbs and flows with musical textures, like the currents of the water. It is my hope that the music is a form of story1telling, that not only expresses the feelings and depicts the actions of our Nekton family, but also ensures for our viewers to be drawn into this special and vibrant world, and to experience their own feelings and emotions.
I would like to thank with much friendship and love my extraordinary Creative Producer Avrill StarkJ our inspiring Director Trent CarlsonJ and our intuitive Executive Producer Steven Wendland. They are the Dream Team to work with, and ensure for me, that every day, creating is filled with joy and inspiration and fun and a sense of humour! Please close your eyes, listen, and imagine… and be transported to The Deep.”
