CITY OF EMBER

2008

Lights shine in the city of Ember—but at the city limits the light ends, and darkness takes over. Out there in the Unknown Regions, the darkness goes on forever in all directions. Ember—so its people believe—is the only light in the dark world. And now the lights of the city are beginning to fail. Is there a way to save the people of Ember? No one knows. But Lina Mayfleet has found a puzzling document, and Doon Harrow has made discoveries down in the Pipeworks. With these clues, they start their search.

Recorded and mixed at the legendary Abbey Road, the score is performed by 90 piece orchestra and 85 piece choir and features unique percussion elements accented by mystical wind instruments that can only be compared to “Whale music”. Special feature to the brass section are the 4 Wagner Horns who lend their bold signature to the score’s main theme. The score is described as “moments of incredible beauty and emotion that peek through in contrast to the dark landscape that is the City of Ember.”
