Nous découvrons un nouveau compositeur, ou plutôt compositrice de musique de film. Riche, varie, aérien et fantasmagorique… Il y a peu de mots pour décrire cet univers triomphant, plongeant, intérieur et qui se soulève magistralement vers du plus haut. La partition était compliquée. Créer pour deux monstres du cinéma : Jackie Chan et Arnold Schwarzenegger un comte musical complexe et décomplexé. Créer le chemin du fantastique dans une fresque qui se veut historique avec un mélange des genres loufoques.

Grand orchestre, coup d’archer et syncope juste. Un coup de maitre pour cette compositrice nommée Alekxandra Maghakyan. De sa Russie natale elle la grâce et l’excellence de ces mélomanes, de ces talents qui ont des heures de travail acharne pour maitriser leur art. Le film sorti en Chine, puis en Russie se promène de pays en pays et devrait conquérir la planète entière. La soundtrack est disponible sur toutes les plateformes digitales. C’est un pur moment talentueux et valeureux a écouter.

The English traveler Jonathan Green receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China. The cartographer will unexpectedly face o lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese Princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters, and even the king of all dragons, the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye-toeye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time, a staunch skepticism of the scientist of the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands?

Director note:
This music from Alexandra Magakyan allows us to enhance the dramatic moments of movie story and it do it very naturally.  Her compositions successfully combine modern sound that relevant to large modern action movie and authentic motifs that help convey the travel spirit of the main movie characters.

Composer note:
«The Mystery Of Dragon Seal» is a movie with a wide geography a rich storylines which has been a great inspiration for me while writing music. It gave an opportunity to use many traditional and contemporary musical instruments and styles to mix them with large orchestra and choir to get the diversity of feelings and color.
