About Earth Moods:
- “Earth Moods takes viewers on the ultimate retreat-transporting them to a vast array of colorful and calming corners of the world. Viewers travel to blue glaciers, arid deserts, lush rainforests and pulsating metropolises to escape from the cacophony of everyday life. Each "mood" gives the audience an opportunity to relax and reset as the sound of music and the natural world washes over them.”
What They’re Saying:
- Neil Davidge, composer and producer: "The filmmakers were keen for each episode to have its own voice, so I had to assume different personalities as I was working on them. The choice of instruments is very important in terms of fitting with the various environments, as it dictated the way music would sound. When you're seeing, images of cities at night with all the lights, you do start thinking of hip-hop beats. For ice, we did a lot of orchestral work, and there are glassy pads and sounds that are used. For the tropical landscapes I used tenor steel drums. I enjoyed taking some of these instruments and trying to play them in a way that wasn't typical, touching on some of the musical genres, like samba. Earth Moods is one of the most enjoyable projects I've worked on in all my 30 years of making music professionally."
All five episodes from the Disney+ original series Earth Moods are now available.
