ABOUT THE MUSIC
Castaway Clocks is comparable to the music of John Williams, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, Randy Newman, Enya, and Yanni. Some of the tracks even sound similar to music you would enjoy while watching a live show at the Walt Disney World resort, or the Cirque Du Soleil. The compositions themselves are Hollywood-like, meaning this is the kind of music you would expect to hear while watching a movie in the drama and/or suspense genres.
