Soundtrack from the IMAX theatre
PANGAEA 186 810 057 2
The huge IMAX screen, especially its great height/depth, is ideal for portraying
and better understanding the undersea world. Considering the warm playful
nature of these delightful creatures, Steve Wood's light-hearted and joyful
score is entirely appropriate. The music is easy-going yet strongly rhythmic
and it blends the smooth friendly-sounding percussion of the Caribbean Islands
with the passionate lively tones of Argentina. In one memorable number Wood
and partner Daniel May transform the song, 'Every Breathe You Take' into
a dusky dolphin tango for one of the film's mating sequences.
It is nice to hear Sting's intelligent and responsible songs incorporated
in the score -- it will be remembered that he has long used his celebrity
to help protect the earth's resources.
The lavish booklet includes notes on the production of the film, notes on
Wood's music and that of Sting and a plea to us all to help save the Dolphins
and the environment.
As a souvenir of the film or as a pleasant easy listening experience, this
