Winner of the IFMCA Best Documentary Score 2011

Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the American documentary The Wind Gods from 2011, composed by Pinar Toprak. The movie chronicles the 10 year quest of famous entrepreneur Larry Ellison who set sail with his ‘Oracle’ to win the America’s Cup and therefore bring the prestigious sailing prize home to the US after it had been won by foreigners in the past years. The documentary which is both an adventure, an insight into the mindset of the well-known billionaire and a love letter to sailing, is narrated by Jeremy Irons and features the magnum opus by its composer Toprak. The Turkish-born musician delivered a grand, sweeping and epic score which shows how exciting the music for a documentary can be: filled with several memorable themes, a detailed orchestration and a lot of swashbuckling action, the music brims with masculine forces and female sensibilities. Deservedly, Toprak was awarded the IFMCA award (International Film Music Critics Association) for Best Documentary Score in 2011 and trumped out prestigious colleagues like George Fenton and Patrick Doyle for their efforts that year. This is no surprise: recorded with the 70+ piece Hollywood Studio Symphony conducted by Jerome Leroy, The Wind Gods is a vivid, thematic and diverse score worthy of the biggest Hollywood epics. As a bonus, we included an exclusive audio commentary by the composer where she talks about his work. The twelfth CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.
