Lisa Gerrard and Marcello De Francisci • Exaudia

  From CANADA 

Lisa Gerrard and Marcello De Francisci • Exaudia

Legendary Dead Can Dance vocalist and highly acclaimed film composer Lisa Gerrard has joined forces with Los Angeles-based composer/ record producer Marcello De Francisci for the stunning new album 'Exaudia', presenting a vivid collection of epic and empowering compositions.

To date, the duo have offered two tasters from this album - the atmospheric ambient track ‘When The Light Of Morning Comes’, released in July, and the gorgeous tapestry of ‘Until We Meet Again’, released in June. Each is accompanied by a euphoric and cinematic new video, adding powerful imagery to these gorgeous compositions.


‘Exaudia’ is the term used when a monarch grants a citizen of his kingdom an audience and, as a result, consents to a wish. A fitting title considering how regal this recording is. Working alongside a team of other musicians including Bahar Shah, Astrid Williamson, Daniela Arbizzi and Farhad Behroozi, ‘Exaudia’ combines the encompassing and euphoric textures of De Francisci’s production with Gerrard's evocative and haunting vocals. A feminine embodiment of poetic expression, the record plays majestically with this narrative, inviting a rich and vivid texture within each offering.

Ms. Gerrard and Mr. De Francisci met many years ago through soundtrack work, their collaborative efforts including soundtrack scores and their first album ‘Departum‘. This recording follows Gerrard's 2021 collaborative ‘Burn’ album with Dead Can Dance bandmate Jules Maxwell, produced by James Chapman (MAPS),

This full-length album captures the broad and ethereal majesty of their work together, highlighting a rich and soaring tone and conveying the bold and orchestral inspiration that has been tethered to their new studio album since its conception.

“I met Marcello while I was composing for a film called 'Kings'. He had wonderful engineering skills and I liked him as a person. After a while, we decided to try composing together and went on to compose some film scores. This work was borne out of a desire to write something together during Covid, there is also the artistic desire to embrace the opportunity to unlock our unfulfilled visions. The album is very physical in its construction and sensibility, it is a deeply sensual work that enjoys a sense of empowered subtlety," says Lisa Gerrard. 

Regarding his own inspiration behind this record, Marcello De Francisci notes, “For quite some time, I had been playing around with the idea of composing a brand new track to Lisa Gerrard’s vocals on 'Diary for the Fallen'. I wanted a darker and more brooding version, which could be attributed to Hans Zimmer’s 'Time' from the 'Inception' soundtrack without plagiarising his work. I wondered what it would have sounded like if Lisa Gerrard had sung on something of this nature, in addition pushing the envelope even further by writing an aria towards the end of this piece including orchestra, choirs and percussion, which would result in one grand finale. It had to be something completely our own”.

Lisa Gerrard has established herself as one of the world’s most highly acclaimed film composers, winning a Golden Globe for her work on the score for ‘Gladiator’ with Hans Zimmer. Her film work also includes ‘Whale Rider’, which received an Academy Award nomination, and ‘Balibo’, which won the Screen Music Award for Best Feature Film Score. In 2018, she received a Grammy nomination for ‘Hiraeth’, alongside David Kuckhermann, and went on to become a featured vocalist on the score for ‘Dune’ before returning to Dead Can Dance to release ‘Dionysus’ and tour in 2022. Gerrard also performs as part of the ‘Gladiator Live’ concerts and ‘The World of Hans Zimmer’ tours.
De Francisci began his career as a visual artist while attending fine arts at an institution founded by the famed Baroque painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo in Seville, Spain. He furthered his education at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. In 2006, he won the Best Soundtrack of the Year G.A.N.G. Award for his work on Sony Computer Entertainment’s ‘God of War’ game. He soon partnered with Lisa Gerrard, launching their trajectory of collaborating and co-writing motion picture soundtrack scores together.
As of 📌 August 26, the ‘Exaudia' album will be released everywhere digitally via Atlantic Curve, a London-based label subsidiary of Schubert Music Europe GmbH and made available via SpotifyApple Music, as well as other platforms. It can be ordered at https://orcd.co/exaudia
