Movie Music in Antarctica

I feel very privileged that one of my piano compositions, ‘Shoghi‘, is part of the official soundtrack to the world’s first ever fictional feature film made entirely on location in Antarctica.

South of Sanity‘, a brand new horror film just released at Halloween 2012, tells the story of 14 scientists working in the wilderness at an Antarctic research station, and the nightmarish psychological consequences that occur when contact is lost and the 14 are left alone in the depths of the Antarctic winter, cut off from the world.

Shoghi‘ – from my album ‘Don’t Go Back To Sleep – Music For Solo Piano Vol.1‘ – was selected as part of the film’s soundtrack.

Have a look at the scary trailer below:

The DVD and HD download of South of Sanity are available at and from

Kirk and Camera Z6

Director Kirk Watson, who began his film-making career as a Antarctic mountain guide for visiting scientists, tells me he is now preparing for his next adventure – to fly the world’s first ever microlight plane over the South Pole and the highest peak in Antarctica.

Good luck Kirk!

    Well done Luke – who would believe that guy playing piano on Grafton Street has written original scores features in a movies – well deserved. Could it be a sequel to Amelie next? I wish you well. Robb (Chippenham)
