“The Transmission Is A Message…”
September 16, 2022
MovieScore Media announces the Soundtrack to DEUS by composer John Koutselinis
The original score from the 2022 sci-fi feature film directed by Steve Stone, starring Claudia Black, David O’Hara and Phil Davis, was released by Darkland Distribution (UK) and 4Digital Media (USA).
In the film, a mysterious black sphere is discovered in the orbit of Mars. The Achilles is sent to investigate. After the bedraggled six-person crew wake from eight months hibernation, the Sphere is transmitting a single word in every Earth language ever known – Deus.
Says composer John Koutselinis about the score: “Wonderful to work with writer/director Steve Stone once again, for whom I have a great admiration of his vision and the dark worlds he depicts through his films. The score for the sci-fi thriller DEUS calls to describe a dark and dystopian reality, humanity on its final days, the search for the unknown, and a challenging question put to the viewer of a great ethical dilemma. As such, the tone is also dark, atonal, somber, distorted, frightful at places, powerful, action driven, but also religious and pensive. This score on its most part is electronic, with very few orchestral and choral parts, and I was very excited to explore the seemingly endless world that synthesizers offer to a composer. Thrilled to work once again with director Steve Stone, and to be given the opportunity to translate his world through my music!”
John Koutselinis has composed music for over 40 projects including the award-winning series WE ARE ANGELS, the multi-award-winning historical fantasy short CENTURION RESURRECTION, DRAGONBALL Z & THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, which has amassed over 15 million views. John is the recipient of 4 awards, including ‘Best Music Score’ by the Sydney Independent Film Festival for the original score of the film NEPHILIM, and the ‘Best Music’ award by the British Horror Film Festival FOR IN EXTREMIS. His score for HOSTILE TERRITORY has been released by MovieScore Media. For more information on the composer, see his website https://www.johnkoutselinis.com/
