Mario Anthony is a fresh film composer from Chicago. This year, he brings under the spotlight his passion for enigmatic instrumental music. Not so long ago, he premiered the clip for his work of art titled “Atlantis.” Right from the start, his cinematic sounds evoke a sense of spatial imagery. What’s more, the airy synths can hypnotize you as if you were entering an unknown dimension. Indeed, the visuals below serve as a tour guide to an alternate reality where lone wanderers in special suits discover an extinct civilization. In particular, this intriguing piece is inspired by the fictional lost city cited in Plato’s works.
In 2003, movie scores of Spiderman and Hulk marked his life positively since childhood. At the early stage of his career, Mario Anthony learned to play the piano at a rapid pace. It was only later that he got fully immersed in film soundtracks after experiencing a concert by Hans Zimmer. The acclaimed Geman film composer is probably his musical hero to date. He is known for mixing orchestral instruments with Electronica.
One thing Mario Anthony and Zimmer share in common is that their imagination bustles with a frenzy of creativity. Artists in this field are on the mission to simulate a wide range of experiences through instrumental music. In the case of “Atlantis,” its charm arises from enigmatic sonic textures that approach a futuristic vision with high precision. Only time will tell if he can reshape the film industry by offering more original proposals.
