Steve Wood has been scoring films with Greg MacGillivray for MacGillivray Freeman Films since Greg's surfing cult classic Five Summer Stories. Since then, he has worked on numerous IMAX® films. Steve worked with Sting on both The Living Sea and the Oscar Nominated Dolphins, with George Harrison on the Oscar nominated Everest, the Moody Blues on Journey Into Amazing Caves, Lindsay Buckingham on Adventures in Wild California and Crosby, Stills and Nash on Coral Reef Adventure. He has won numerous awards for his work.
Wood was Kenny Loggins' musical director for nine years, and has written many songs with Loggins including "If You Believe." He composed the instrumental interludes for Loggins' Return to Pooh Corner. He has performed with artists such as The Pointer Sisters, Michael McDonald, David Crosby, and Graham Nash. Wood's music has also appeared in other films such as Why Me? starring Christopher Lloyd, Boiling Point starring Wesley Snipes and Dennis Hopper, and Greedy starring Kirk Douglas. He also worked with Stevie Wonder on a Clio-award winning television spot for Hansen's Soda.
Scoring giant screen films has allowed Wood to develop his interest in and knowledge of diverse ethnic music including Indonesian, Caribbean, Chinese, Tibetan, South American, African, Middle Eastern and Irish and Greek styles. He has also recorded folk music in Fijian locations.
About this score, Steve says "When director Greg MacGillivrey asked for something different, I took him at his word. Mostly electronic elements here combine to form evocative and otherworldly moods. I like to think of this (as I do with much of my work) as the auditory equivilent of an airbrushed sunset on some other planet. . . realistic in the details combining to make something unrreal. This was originally done in 1993 with arcane technology."
