Here is an early preview of Marco's upcoming score for COVID-19 Ground Zero.
This theme serves as an elegy for the heroic first responders and front line healthcare workers throughout the film, and is dedicated to all of them, at a time when we all reflect on this difficult year behind us.
COVID-19 Ground Zero comes in 2021, and is written and directed by Mustafa Ozgun, written and produced by Laura Weissbecker, produced by Don Kushner. The score was recorded by the Budapest Scoring Symphony strings.
The Budapest Scoring Symphony recorded Marco's upcoming soundtrack to COVID-19 Ground Zero, a drama piece dealing with the condition of first responders and healthcare workers in NYC during the first wave of coronavirus in 2020.
The film is written and directed by Mustafa Ozgun, starring, written and produced by Laura Weissbecker and produced by Donald Kushner.
Marton Toth conducted the orchestra in Budapest.
Marco's new concert piece Unfolding Light for String Quintet or String Orchestra is now available as part of the LAFCI 2020 New Music Project, an initiative curated by Los Angeles Film Conducting Intensive to create a collection of new works giving voice to the extraordinary events of 2020 while offering new repertoire sensible to the challenge contemporary music ensembles will face in programming the upcoming concert season. The piece, that can be performed by any size of string ensemble, with an eye to smaller, chamber formations to deal with Social Distancing regulation, is a reflection on the meaning these difficult times carry for each one of us. The piece is available at https://www.lafci.org/2020-new-music-project in the Ensembles section for ensembles and performers to download and program in their concerts, and you can listen to a demo of Unfolding Light on the project's SoundCloud page at this link.
