The Journey
Original Soundtrack


Composer: Mikkel Maltha
Label: MovieScore Media
Release Date: 19 May 2017

MovieScore Media moves beyond the world of film scoring to explore the cinematic experience staged in the environment of a museum. Staged in the Moesgaard Museum, The Journey is a cinematic exhibition about basic human conditions consisting of four rooms - a cave, a film universe with a water mirror, a reflection room and a space where you can travel with the help of virtual reality glasses. The audience is closed into groups for the film show, where they experience a staged journey through seven continents and focused on seven human basic conditions: Birth, love, faith, fear, loss, rationality and death...

Mikkel Maltha's music for the exhibition The Journey accompanies the visitors from a child's first breath in Denmark, through the experience of love in Africa, belief in South America, fear in Oceania, loss in North America, and rationality in Antarctica just to see the last breath being taken in Asia before the body is burned.

This EP contains 8 tracks (15 min, 29 sec) and charts the journey from cradle to grave for humankind. It's a sweet score with many interesting themes. I think, on balance, my personal favourite has to be 'Loss', a melancholic, but touching piece.

While it's incredibly short, it's also packed from start to finish with some intricate and moving themes.
