Album Notes
"Heroes fall and in chaos others shall rise" is what can be said of director Neil Johnson's latest Sci-Fi action film's general theme. An 'angry' Star Trek or "Game of Thrones" in space is what would describe it best. The "Starship: Rising" soundtrack won the WAB Best Music Score Award at the 2014 Action on Film International Festival in Los Angeles.

When in the scoring process, one of the question that came onto the table was "if you open the gates of Hell, what would it sounds like?" It's with this question in mind that the quest to always try to go deeper and deeper in the lowest possible register of the score's spectrum took on a whole new level.

Huge percussions and extremely low end synthesizer sounds were used in combination together to literally make you feel it in the gut.

The "Starship: Rising" score represents also a technological breakthrough. A tribute to Science Fiction, technology and to what can be accomplished today using the most advanced virtual instruments software in combination with the most powerful computing systems.

"The choice of using a virtual orchestra for 'Starship' completely made sense. In a world where mankind seems to have lost its soul, and where machines are -- in a creepy way -- coming as close to humans as they can be, the choice of scoring the film using virtual acoustic instruments was a very interesting idea," says Charles-Henri.

"We tried to push it even further by using virtual human voices. In "Starship: Rising" there is a virtual hundred piece choir that can sing any words in any language and on any melodies I want it to sing. It's pretty amazing. It's also very technical and requires a lot of linguistic research and programming. I could spend an entire day programing only one sentence!" he adds.

"But the result was amazing. We tried to reach as much as we could that fine line where you wonder, is it real or is it generated? Just like the characters in the film."

In addition to being his first collaboration with director Neil Johnson, Avelange celebrates here his first collaboration with John Rodd (Elysium, Breaking Bad, World of Warcraft, Starcraft II...) -- one of the top score mixers in the industry -- who mixed and mastered some of the themes in this soundtrack.

This is the result of 3 months of an intense work of passion for music and technology. An attempt to take you into a futuristic and dark journey.
