Client brief:

The client wanted a soundtrack that was Epic and cinematic but also have elements of Saudi music to represent the local culture. The Score also needed to be performed live by an Orchestra.

What we delivered:

We were thrilled to take on the challenge of creating a truly unforgettable experience for our client. They desired a soundtrack that embodied the grandeur of epic and cinematic music while incorporating elements of Saudi music to honor the local culture.

To meet this vision, we embarked on a remarkable journey. Our team crafted a bespoke original cinematic soundtrack, meticulously weaving together the rich tapestry of Saudi melodies with the grandeur of orchestral arrangements. It was a harmonious blend that resonated with the essence of the event.

But we didn’t stop there. To bring the magic to life, we assembled a remarkable ensemble. Arabic musicians, skilled in their craft, joined forces with an 80-piece orchestra, creating a breathtaking synergy of sounds. Additionally, a 20-piece string section added depth and emotion to the composition.

The crowning achievement came as we synchronized the music with a stunning display of technology and artistry. 1500 drones took to the sky, forming intricate patterns and mesmerizing formations, while an animated video illuminated two large screens. The live performance of the soundtrack transformed the event into a multisensory feast, leaving the audience awe-inspired.

We are immensely proud of the result—a true testament to the power of collaboration, cultural appreciation, and artistic innovation. It was an honor to deliver a transcendent experience that celebrated the local culture and captivated hearts and minds alike.


“Matt Faddy and BKP produced a phenomenal music score for this show. I wanted a soundtrack that was Epic with an emotive theme that would linger in the audiences memory, and this is exactly what Matt delivered. As always Matt was involved right from the concept of the show right through to working onsite to do final tweaks and mix to ensure everything was perfect on the night and the client was happy.”
