Utopia Review Round Up


utopia-cover

If you haven’t yet heard Chilean composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s original music for Channel 4’s Utopia, you are missing out.  Described by The Arts Desk as “Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s cunning, menacing music”, the score features instruments ranging from a rare Chilean trutruka recorded in Borough tube station to the percussion sounds of a rhino turd from Zimbabwe. This is one of the most eclectic and innovative scores in a long while, but don’t take our word for it:

What the Critics Say:

RTS Awards Winner 2013

Mojo Magazine – No.4 in Top Ten 2013 soundtracks

Record Collector – Xmas “Best of 2013” roundup

…a twitching, engaging and unique score that sounds unlike anything we’ve heard in some while. We’ve been waiting for this release since the show appeared on telly so we’re well chuffed now it’s out.”- Record Collector 5*

“Utopia by Cristobal Tapia De Veer is definitely some of the weirdest music I have ever heard.”- Den of Geek

“…there’s something irresistible about the oddness of it all.”- CultBox

“Credit goes to Cristobal Tapia De Veer for his awe-inspiring work with the music.”- Vada Magazine

“By turns unsettling and playful, it was absolutely intrinsic to the tone, and success of the show.”- Viewing Gum (2013 Soundtrack of the year)

“This show. This music. Everything about it is so odd and so perfect. The soundtrack to this show is quite honestly one of the best I’ve ever heard…”- Waterman Butterly (Top tracks of 2013 – UTOPIA OVERTURE – CRISTOBAL TAPIA DE VEER)

Appearing on many musicians’ top ten albums of 2013, the Utopia soundtrack has all the markings of a cult classic and there’s more to come as series 2 of Utopia, with another original soundtrack by Cristobal Tapia De Veer, is currently in production.
