Bear McCreary's pulsing score for Sebastián Cordero's EUROPA REPORT provides an affecting emotional arc to the film, which tells the story of an international crew of astronauts who undertake a privately funded mission to search for life on Jupiter's fourth largest moon.
Finding the emotion of the storyline was key for McCreary. “Sebastián and I knowingly took a bit of a risk,” said McCreary. “There are moments in this score where we are telling a cinematic story. When the celli come in with that main theme, to me it sounds luscious and cinematic. It’s a real melody. But I think the film earns it, and the counter balance to that are those heavy synthesizer and the dissonant atonal elements. I think it means that when those melodic moments come in, they are more powerful and more subtle at the same time.”
The soundtrack represents the music from EUROPA REPORT configured for the best listening experience.
