MovieScore Media continues its search for unique sci-fi scores with its latest release, After the World Ended with music by London-based composer Nikolas Labrinakos. Written and directed by Tony Sebastian Ukpo, the film tells three interconnected stories set some 500 years in a distant, dystopian future. The storylines are focused on an astronaut who crashes in the middle of nowhere, a young woman in search of her family in an abandoned urban wasteland and a prisoner who is preparing for a dangerous space program that will make him the first human being on Mars.

Hailed by Newsweek as "a Greek Mozart", London-based composer and pianist Nikolas Labrinakos makes his soundtrack debut with After the World Ended. Originally graduating in Mathematics, Nikolas studied composition in London with the celebrated pianist Susan Bradshaw, and gained a PhD in composition at the University of Surrey. His previous credits include the National Geographic documentary Mkomazi: Return of the Rhino, the surround-sound underscoring of the planetarium feature Astronomyths and the short film King John Act IV Scene I. Nikolas’ score for After the World Ended is a unique blend of the symphonic and hybrid sound whose declared purpose is to evoke the sound of the future.

"While I was composing the music I was deeply aware of heading for a distant, desolate and ethereal world.“ recalls the composer. “None of us knows the music of the future but what I did was to try and create a visionary sound kaleidoscope to suggest the next 500 years when the film begins. Such an imaginary music was a gift to create, but I also had to realize that the music had to make sense in the present too, so the basic rules of our Western musical heritage had to be kept. My aim, as always, was to recapture at least some of the scope and quality of the great days of film music, exemplified by the work of two past masters I have especially admired and learnt from, Jerry Goldsmith and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett.”
 
Here is one I have know idea of the film, so my first thought is to composer Nikolas Labrinakos score is... it's a sweeping journey that I find very moving.
