Varese Sarabande: "SEAQUEST DSV" 2CD music by John Debnry

 

seaQuest DSV was set in 2018, when a political organization called the United Earth Oceans (UEO) formed in response to the colonization of the deep sea. Keeping peace among the various inter-oceanic conflicts is the grand, futuristic seaQuest DSV (“deep submergence vehicle”). The series was created by Rockne S. O’Bannon and produced by Steven Spielberg.

The Deluxe Edition soundtrack was composed and conducted by Emmy®-winning composer, John Debney (Elf, The Orville, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book). The original (1995) 14-track album has been expanded to 58 tracks and two CDs. The album was remastered from the original sources provided by Debney. Disc one features music from the show’s pilot episode, while disc two features music from selected episodes from Season One curated by John Debney. The deluxe set features eight pages of extensive liner notes from film music journalist Tim Greiving and from the show’s creator, Rockne S. O’Bannon.

John Debney on the deluxe edition release: “seaQuest holds a special place in my heart. It was an exciting time for me working with Amblin and Steven Spielberg. I had done a wonderful Civil War pilot for Steven called ‘The Class of ’61.’ Although the pilot didn’t sell, Steven liked what I’d done and soon after invited me to work on the seaQuest pilot. I’ll never forget composing what was basically a teaser for the show. We recorded at the old Evergreen studios in Burbank. The teaser turned out well and shortly after presenting to NBC, I got the call that the show was a ‘Go.’

“Working on the show was a dream and frequently Steven would send a note expressing his love for the score. Created by the amazing Rockne S. O’Bannon, seaQuest was a show ahead of its time speaking to the human condition and important environmental Issues. Every week was a new adventure and I’m so grateful to Steven, Amblin and the wonderful directors and producers I met on the show. I hope you enjoy the amazing performances of the Los Angeles recording musicians who always brought their ‘A’ game. Enjoy!” *Limited Collector’s Edition of 1,500 copies.
