Penka Kouneva Scores Netflix series DRAGON AGE: ABSOLUTION based on BioWare Game Franchise
DRAGON AGE: ABSOLUTION is an animated streaming television series premiere on Netflix on December 9, 2022. The fantasy series is based on the Dragon Age media franchise centered on a series of fantasy role-playing video games created and developed by BioWare. DRAGON AGE: ABSOLUTION explores mature subjects concerning freedom, power, and corruption set against the backdrop of adult animation. Set in the Tevinter Empire, the oldest of several human nations in Thedas, the series will feature new characters as a group of rebels, mages, and thieves go head-to-head against a sinister force possessing a dangerous artifact. The series is created by Mairghread Scott, writer of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK: APOKOLIPS WAR and is produced by Red Dog Culture House.
The series has been scored by composer Penka Kouneva (PANDORA, MIRA MIRA, ENCOUNTER), who began working in film and television in 1999. She began to score for videogames (Chaos At Hogwarts, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen and others, the latter two featuring themes by Steve Jablonsky). Her music is a blend of Bulgarian influences, classical training, rock sensibility, and modern film and game soundtracks. Kouneva has released two award-winning concept albums: The Woman Astronaut (2015, on Varèse Sarabande/Universal Music Group) and A Warrior’s Odyssey (2012, on Howlin’ Wolf Records/Sumthing Else), both receiving 5-star press.
