Franco Esteve was born in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, and had a multicultural upbringing throughout the United States and Europe. This multicultural upbringing led to his adoption of the concept of everywhere and nowhere for his views of life, origin, and culture. The same has applied to his professional life as well, covering a multitude of disciplines, feeding his thirst for knowledge and expression.

As a child he developed in music and piano, and also as an actor, acting in local commercials and theater, later developing in other areas of production, photography, design, and film. He’s fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and has a working knowledge of Catalan, as well as a degree in psychology. His professional life reflects a multitude of disciplines, mostly focusing on design, writingphotography, advertising, music, web development, and film.

He’s produced and directed commercials and music videos, but is best known for his work with The Doll Chronicles series of short films, particularly Consequence, The Doll Chronicles, which he produced and directed. He also composed the music for the series, for which he’s received accolades.

Though his work is more focused on scoring for films, and he has a special love for the genre, he’s never thought of himself as tied down to it. He finds all genres have great music, and loves to explore them all. On a single playlist, he might jump from Nine Inch Nails to Beethoven to Snoop Dogg to Led Zeppelin to The Ink Spots to John Barry to She Wants Revenge. Mostly he expresses himself as seeking beauty and expressing it, no matter the art form.

His latest work, The Passage (Trailer Version) was created for the trailer for the film Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles and expresses the characters passage through life, death, and a post-apocalyptic landscape.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

SYNTHWAVE MUSIC SINGLE BRINGS THE PASSAGE DRIVES THE APOCALYPSE

 

Franco Esteve’s New, Synthwave Music Single, “The Passage (Trailer Version),” explores the passage between life and death in the trailer for Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles

 

Cala Ratjada, Baleares, Spain - May 14th, 2019: Puerto Rican artist and composer, Franco Esteve, has released a new, synthwave music single called “The Passage (Trailer Version)”. The single, used in the trailer for the short film, Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles, and highly anticipated due to the trailer and short film series’ popularity, represents a departure for Franco Esteve, exploring a more 80’s synthwave sound.

Franco Esteve, a multi-disciplinary artist and composer, is known to create music with a film focused, story-driven approach that both penetrates the soul, and touches the humanity of his listeners. His brand of music captivates his listeners and audiences, as it evokes universal emotions in them while taking them on the journey of the story. This latest work is no exception, driving the story in the trailer while evoking the passage of life, of time, of death.

Esteve is an award-winning filmmaker and composer, and soundtrack lovers in particular will be keen to appreciate the story and personal “movie” that “The Passage (Trailer Version)” is meant to evoke. Jamsphere Magazine, in their review of “Quicksand,” his first single and one of the songs from “The Hunt”, had this to say about the composer: “To say his music is cinematic is all too obvious and Esteve’s ability to create simple and emotive musical narratives is a rare gift to be admired...Esteve’s music has a universal appeal that will attract audiences of many cultures and musical tastes." A Huffington Post review has said the following about Franco Esteve’s most famous song, also from “The Hunt”, “The Wait”: “(Franco) Esteve has composed a glistening tune that is simultaneously diaphanous and sensitive, yet emancipated and emotive."

“I love exploring different genres and musical styles, whatever is best for what I’m trying to express, be it classical, orchestral music, new age, jazz, or in the case of “The Passage (Trailer Version)”, synthwave. The Passage is a song about passing through something, through the tunnel, through death, through life. In the case of the film, it’s a post-apocalyptic world, but it applies to any part of our lives.”

You can listen to the “The Passage (Trailer Version),” and find more information at Franco Esteve’s website. It is also available as Digital Download on Amazon, iTunes, Bandcamp, and for streaming on Spotify, and on all the main music streaming services and online stores.

Here is what Franco Esteve says of his creative musical compositions: "For me, composing music is a process of exploration, which is why I’m so drawn to it. There are so many places to visit and explore and express. I think music can act as a live entity within a story, regardless of where or what inspires it."

“The Passage (Trailer Version),” is a synthwave soundtrack music single, that explores the passage through the tunnel, through death, through life. It’s a story-driven musical soundscape created for the trailer for the short film, Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles, part of the award-winning The Doll Chronicles series, which you can find on YouTube here:
