The Hunt is the orchestral soundtrack to the film we experience everyday, its ups, its downs, its successes, and its losses. It's my way of expressing that, both beautifully and tragically through classical, orchestral music, and in a song format.
The Hunt is a musical journey that tells a story both literally and metaphorically. Though the songs were written individually, the album is loosely tied together in a single thread that binds its story. The songs are meant to reflect the story of the hunt, but how one interprets that hunt is up to each of you. For me, it's been a journey that's taken a little over three years to complete and the album in many ways reflects that.
The Hunt is the hunt of life, hunting for health, for life, for happiness, for love, for ideas, for creativity, for success. Life has happiness, but it also has pain, and that is also reflected in some of the music (especially in Quicksand and Lament). The Hunt is the soundtrack to the film we experience every day, its ups, its downs, its successes and its losses. It's my way of expressing that, both beautifully and tragically through the different orchestral sounds, but also, in a song format that any listener can experience and enjoy even within a short moment, sitting, or within a personalized playlist.
As I've mentioned many times before, composing music for me is a process of exploration, full of places to visit and explore and express. The music here is drawn from life itself, sometimes simple and sometimes complex. I hope you enjoy The Hunt and that the hunt of your life is always a happy, loving, and successful one. Enjoy! :)
Here's what reviewers have said of The Hunt's singles:
“Esteve has composed a glistening tune that is simultaneously diaphanous and sensitive, yet emancipated and emotive.” – Huffington Post review of The Wait, single from the modern, classical music album, The Hunt.
"Franco Esteve has managed to impress with a brief piece that exudes diverse emotions which are contagious. To say his music his cinematic is all too obvious and Esteve’s ability to create simple and emotive musical narratives is a rare gift to be admired. To do it in two minutes is something to behold." - Jamsphere Review of Quicksand, single from the modern, classical music album, The Hunt.
