Boarding the Ark retells the story of Noah. Everyone knows that Noah receives orders from God to save a portion of the world’s creatures, while God hits the reset button and floods the Earth. In my version however, Noah becomes locked out of the Ark just as the flood begins and must discover a way back in using his superhuman skills as a carpenter. By using comedy, cartoony animation and an obviously different take Noah’s Ark it allows me to entertain people with a familiar Bible story.
The soundtrack for Boarding the Ark, was composed by award winning young composer, pianist and songwriter, Adriano Aponte. Aponte has been touted as leaving "a lasting impact on the music communities of LA and Hollywood" according to the Executive Producer of the Los Angeles Music Awards, Al Bowman. His album, Inside won the Acoustic Album of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards in 2009 and Instrumental Artist of the Year the following year. In August 2011, Aponte received the accolade of being the Best Italian Film Composer at the Italian Movie Awards. Aponte studied Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and gained his Master's Degree (Scoring for Film, TV and Video Games program) at Berklee College of Music in Valencia. Berklee College of Music is one of the premiere music schools in the world with alumni claiming 253 Grammy's. Notable alumni include composer Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings) and recording artists Melissa Etheridge and Joey Kramer of Aerosmith.
The soundtrack was recorded by the London Session Orchestra which is comprised of members from the London Symphony Orchestra and part of the London Royal Symphony Orchestra. Both orchestras are considered to be among the top orchestras in the world and as you become immersed in Noah's quest to save humanity you will surrounded by world renowned musicians. The soundtrack was recorded at arguably the most famous recording studio in the world, Abbey Road. Abbey Road Studios, located in London, England was the recording home to The Beatles and Pink Floyd and where John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra recorded the soundtrack for Star Wars.
