New Zealand native Victoria Kelly’s score for UNDER THE MOUNTAIN is an eclectic meld of subterranean adventure, harrowing defeatism, beguiling beauty, and sensual tenderness all expressed with acrobatic ease through inventive orchestration. This is a dark score founded upon the rich traditions of the Golden Age of film music where masterful composers such as Max Steiner, Alfred Newman, Franz Waxman, or Miklós Rózsa, would dare audiences into their world and deliver a cinematic joie de vivre brimming with skilled artistry and superior intellect…
