Our track is a Caribbean party-time nod to those who fiddle while the earth heats up and burns. Humans and the earth are in a modern-day version of the Titanic, heading for a collision with an iceberg, albeit in a warming sea.
With this track we explore the crackly, nebulous world of ice forms.
Our music lands on and powers along a stretch of this hard, slippery ice surface.
When film composer Miklós Rózsa was asked to compose the soundtrack for the 1968 film The Green Berets, starring John Wayne, he was reported to have replied, “I don’t do Westerns.” He was told, “It’s not a Western, it’s an Eastern.” We present this track, then, as our theme for an Antarctic “Southern.”
In this joyous piece, we tip our hats to all Antarctic heroes and venturers. First and foremost is the native wildlife, existing in some of the harshest weather on earth and now facing serious habitat change. The first polar explorers dodged fierce storms and icebergs in their wooden sailing ships, then fought cold and starvation, hauling sledges over mountains and dangerous crevasses. Later adventurers carved out endurance records through speed and better technology. Under-appreciated heroes are scientists and environmentalists working to understand and communicate the threats to the continent from climate change and destructive human activities. Our track is a salute to all brave guests of the Antarctic harshness.
Here we present our own musical interpretation of a gentle world of snowdrifts.
We present some brassy horn-driven music to paint Antarctica as a perpetual engine that influences much of the world’s climate through its ice, ocean and wind currents.
This is our portrayal of long and relentlessly dynamic Antarctic summer days and winter nights.
In our track we’re in the water, observing whales as they swim, breach and sing.
This track continues with more jazz-flavoured music for such a swinging continent.
Our track takes a tropical view of Antarctic travel, coloured by a warming global climate, which is of great concern for Antarctica.
Our track is a commentary that time is clicking relentlessly on global warming. It’s melodically based on one of the most commonly used pop music styles, the doo-wop progression, especially popular in the 1950s.
