"Symphony for Our World "
Premieres Sunday, April 22 at 7PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD
Driven by a five-part composition – broken down by sea, shore, land, mountains, sky – Symphony for Our World is a one-hour celebration of planet Earth that pairs artistry with science. It combines stunning National Geographic natural history footage with an original symphony and theme composed by Bleeding Fingers Music featuring composers Austin Fray and Andrew Christie, and a special musical collaboration with X Ambassadors, resulting in a powerful tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world. Symphony for Our World premieres commercial-free on Nat Geo WILD and will premiere globally in 140 countries.
Bleeding Fingers Music will layer in the unique musical elements of X Ambassadors, known for their hits like “Renegades,” “Unsteady” and their newly released singles “Don’t Stay” and “Ahead of Myself,” into the original composition to create an unprecedented musical experience that will bring viewers on a breathtaking musical journey through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles. The composition for Symphony for Our World will now include vocal riffs and piano and drum elements recorded by X Ambassadors members Sam Harris, Casey Harris and Adam Levin to create a powerful, unique orchestra-meets-rock-band sound that elevates this celebration of our planet.
“It’s such a thrill to work with the world-renowned X Ambassadors. My team and I at Bleeding Fingers are honored to once again bring together contemporary musicians with orchestral backing. Unquestionably the band’s input elevated the theme and brought an ingredient to the score that unleashed an expected new energy,” said Russell Emanuel, chief creative and CEO of Bleeding Fingers Music.
