ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK FROM & INSPIRED BY AMBITION & THE ROSETTA MISSION
Warsaw, Poland (15.01.2015) – Composed and produced by Atanas Valkov, the “Ambition” album has just premiered in online music stores and on streaming platforms, including iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and many others. The album features 15 originaltracks of electronic, cinematic, and world music.
The album is inspired by the European Space Agency’s historic Rosettamission and the film “Ambition” (directed by Tomek Bagiński, starring Aidan Gillen and Aisling Franciosi), whose soundtrack was composed and produced by Atanas.
The “Ambition” album features sounds recorded by the European Space Agency (ESA) during some of humanity’s most daring space voyages. Disguised as part of the music and sound effectsthrough sound design technologies, these samples blended in with the music to help shapethe composer’s “love project”.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind sonic voyage into outer space, combining the realms of music, film, and science. What drives human beings to achieve great things is ambition. I felt that I really wanted to pay tribute to the incredible achievement that was the success of the Rosetta mission, so I used the film score, ESA’s sound vault, and my music to produce this feature album”, Atanas said.
The album also features the voices of special guests from the European Space Agency, including astronaut Alexander Gerst, Prof MarkMcCaughrean, and Prof David Southwood. The track called “Stubborn” features Mavin, a Berlin-based singer and songwriter, who provided unique flavour as he sang about conflicts between emotion and experience, and bitter lessons learned.
“Ambition” is Atanas’ second feature album.
