Pendleton, IN, June 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Indiana composer Phil Larson has been chosen by Malaysian TV to create a dynamic soundtrack for the second season of the adventure reality TV show Kampung Quest now airing in Malaysia and online at KampungQuest.com.
In October 2014 Kampung Quest producers Iskander and Feisal Azizuddin, contacted Larson after hearing some of his songs on the online stock audio marketplace, AudioJungle.net. Larson's style was the exact sound they were looking for this season.
"It's an honor to be a part of what of the Azizuddin brothers are doing,” states composer Phil Larson Anderson, Indiana USA. “The more I get to know about the Malaysian entertainment industry, the more I see they are changing the way things are produced in their region. It's truly revolutionary. If you support Kampung Quest, you are supporting an exciting new movement.”
Kampung Quest is a thrilling reality show, similar to the popular U.S. program, Survivor. The season takes ten people from urban areas throughout Malaysia (Urbanites) and places them in Malaysia's beautiful and untamed rural areas. The Quests challenge the Urbanites physically, mentally, and socially with the goal of giving the viewer a greater understanding of authentic Malaysian culture. At the end of each episode a losing team member is eliminated during a campfire ceremony à la Survivor with the last remaining Urbanite winning.
"For the soundtrack of Season Two, I wanted to create a sound that marries Asian ethnicity with Hollywood cinema,” says Larson. “A flute authentic to Asian culture called a Ney Flute, paired with the epic Hollywood string riffs and horn lines, reoccur throughout giving the soundtrack its unique, best-of-both-worlds fingerprint.”
Larson has been creating music for over fifteen years. In 2012 he teamed up with production house, The Story Shop, where he has been able to further explore and hone his craft. Since beginning to write for AudioJungle.net and working alongside the professionals at The Story Shop, Phil has discovered the use of his music in countless films, television shows, commercials, and video games.
“Kampung Quest has been my most ambitious project yet. I didn't know what to expect when I started. It has been some of the most rewarding composing I've ever done. Some of my best works to date are little gems hidden within this exciting show."
The adventure reality program is airing now in Malaysia and is available for online streaming at KampungQuest.com
