Dark Sky Discoveries
Music by Carl Boland. A Film by Luke Maggs.
This film project was sponsored by the Countryside Commission for Wales (CCW). It promotes ‘Dark Skies’ Tourism in the Valleys of South Wales. The film showcases attractive locations from which to view the night sky using beautiful time-lapse sequences.
The music soundtrack project was literally a one-day commission from the filmmaker who had a deadline to publish the work online. The brief was to create a dynamic piece of contemporary electronic music that would appeal to a younger audience. In compositional terms, the music is structured to atmospherically develop towards a dramatic climax. This aligns with the intentions of the filmmaker to evoke an ‘epic’ sense of awe and mystery about the night sky.
