Buy it... if you expect your IMAX scores to soar with all the orchestral majesty required by films featuring exploding stars and the birth of galaxies.

Avoid it... if a merging of the romantic styles of James Horner and Rachel Portman leaves you seeking a more ambitious and challenging accompaniment for the subject matter.

Cosmic Voyage: (David Michael Frank) It's hard not to be a fan of IMAX films and their scores. There's something magnificent about a screen six stories high and an equally expansive score being pumped through a seemingly infinite number of speakers surrounding that huge screen. Of all the IMAX film genres that require the biggest of the big, those showing the vastness of space often require the grandest of all production scales. One such IMAX project in the mid-1990's was Cosmic Voyage, a computer-generated film that takes the audience on a trip around the universe with spectacular colors, vast special effects, and resounding narration by Morgan Freeman. At the time, its digital effects were top notch, and with wall to wall visuals and a similarly minded sound, the film continues to impress critics and audiences several years later. To match Freeman's always deep, intoxicating voice, director Bayley Silleck required a fully orchestral score that would assist in forming a soundscape for every single moment of the film. David Michael Frank was hired to provide 30 minutes of large-scale organic music that ranges from massive epic proportions to softer, intimate passages. Frank was already a veteran of conducting Broadway productions and scoring for mostly television series, although a few of his film projects included top grossing action flicks that receive most of their attention after midnight on cable channels. His additional material (contributed on top of that of the primary composers on the assignment) has been heard in films like Forrest Gump and The Mask, and his versatility lends him well to nearly any genre. Undeniably, Cosmic Voyage would be Frank's opportunity to do what all composers love the most: write a monumental score for an IMAX film. With exploding stars, the birth of galaxies, and the tiny positioning of a single human in all of this activity, the film served up quite the inspiration for Frank, whose score meets your expectations with great success.
