The sounds of the sea from Pixar’s “Luca” are ready to soar to new heights. Walt Disney Records released the soundtrack from “Luca,” available at https://disneymusic.co/Luca.
The score is composed and produced by Dan Romer. “Luca,” a story about two teenage sea monsters who share a life-changing summer, is streaming on Disney+.
The score, orchestrated and conducted by Mark Graham, was recorded with an 82-piece orchestra at the Newman Recording Stage. Romer performed on accordion and acoustic guitar.
“I love his style — his accordion skills — and his ability to blend his style with the nuances of Italian music for this score,” said “Luca” director Enrico Casarosa.
“Luca” is set on the Italian Riviera in the late 1950s and early 1960s and Romer said Casarosa wanted the music to match the historical period.
“Enrico wanted something that felt like more of a nod, or a memory, than something that felt historically accurate,” Romer said. “He told me what he really wanted was a more Italian-sounding version of the style of music I already make, which was very exciting and freeing!”
Romer said he liked working on the film’s dream sequences in which Luca explores his world and feels the freedom he craves.
“They called for the most lush instrumentation, and usually the most wild rhythms,” Romer said.
“It was an absolute joy getting to make such a melodically driven score and I’m excited for everyone to see the film.”
Featuring 30 score tracks, the digital Luca Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is now available. For more information on Walt Disney Records releases, follow us at Facebook.com/Disney, Instagram/disneymusic, and Twitter.com/disneymusic.
