Calabasas, CA, Sept. 17, 2009 â€“ MusicBox, the music production and library music source for such hit TV shows as â€œDog, The Bounty Hunterâ€? and ESPNâ€™s â€œWorld Series of Poker,â€? is pleased to announced its creative contribution to a new, upcoming two-hour TV special entitled â€œHoly Grail in America.â€?
Produced by Committee Films for History, and featuring both a hybrid original score and library music from Music Box, â€œHoly Grail in Americaâ€? will premiere on History Sept. 20, 2009, at PM. The original score is one part neoclassical drama, and one part contemporary orchestral gothic mystery. This score does a thorough job of immersing the viewer in the time period featured in this special, as well as illustrating the mindset of the determined men who scoured the globe in search of â€œThe Holy Grail.â€?
Said Andy Awes, director/producer of
â€œHoly Grail in America,â€? Music Box did a phenomenal job of composing original tracks, which were used to augment and complement the other pieces of music from their existing library.â€?
Adds Music Box co-founder/composer Joel Goodman, â€œThis was a very interesting project for us, because it integrated all of our client services. Often, we provide either custom/original score, or licenses from our library, but this was a true hybrid of both, and included music editing/post production services, too. Itâ€™s a great example of how we can efficiently address all aspects of music for any production, and provide a genuine turnkey solution to content producers, big and small.â€?
ABOUT â€œHOLY GRAIL IN AMERICA:â€?
For centuries, the search for the Holy Grail has sent treasure hunters and scholars traipsing all over the globe. Should they have been focusing their efforts in, of all places, North America? â€œHoly Grail in Americaâ€? investigates the provocative possibility that the Knights Templar, a legendary Christian military order from the 12th century believed by many to be guardians of the Grail, stashed this precious relic somewhere on American soil â€“ and that they did it more than 100 years before Columbus â€œdiscoveredâ€? the New World.
If retrievable today, the Holy Grail â€“ the legendary relic supposedly used by Jesus at the Last Supper and said to possess miraculous powers â€“ would be an object of incalculable historic and religious value. Searchers seemingly have left no stone unturned, yet the prize continues to elude them. But, by consulting with experts from a variety of scholarly and scientific disciplines (historians, linguists, cartographers, geologists, archeologists, architects, astronomers and more), â€œHoly Grail in Americaâ€? picks up a centuries-old trail of breadcrumbs that leads from the Holy Land through Medieval Europe to an unsettled North America first visited by Vikings in 1000 A.D.
â€œHoly Grail in Americaâ€? is produced for History by Committee Films. Michael Stiller is Executive Producer for History. Executive Producers for Committee Films are Andy Awes and Maria Awes.
