I was watching the telly last week and an advert came on for a new car (Ford Focus).
It started with a CGI robot butterfly hatching and flying up and about, over land and cities, attracting lots of other butterflies, who all then flew down on a roof together and merged, to create said new car.
As well as impressive FX, the music immediately stood out as something I liked. My ears fairly tingled with delight.
Grabbing the tablet, I typed in the search-age and low and behold...

So it was from a Disney film nature doc The Crimson Wing - Mystery Of The Flamingos* (track 8, Transformation, fact fans).
One week later, CD bought for the price of a Costa Coffee, and it's all very nice indeed.
Anyone else seen or heard?
Or similar findings perhaps?

*I think the score, as a whole, has a 'Mark Isham when he was good' vibe about it

Glad someone’s finally mentioned this hidden gem. I came across CRIMSON years ago and have never seen it discussed here. Lots of gorgeous and tranquil string and piano work with distinctly very little brass. It’s a more intimate nature documentary score than what people are used to hearing but perhaps provides a more cohesive listen on album because of its strong themes. Favourite tracks are “Soda”, “Transformation” and “Life Of The Bird”.

I listened to the album on repeat while I painted my daughters nursery and it was perfect for that. It almost made the experience pleasant.

So count two of us who love this score.

And on and on, the train trundled, with two passengers now steering it's course..

Yea, this is a popular one with advertisers Kev, and has been for a hot minute now. Rightfully so, as it's lyrically beautiful while maintaining that minimalist sensibility modern sensibilities seem ubiquitously predisposed toward.

That's a good sentence right there.
