For Captain Abu Raed, the director was looking for a Western sound, instead of the typical Middle Eastern orchestral color an audience would be used to hearing in a film set in this part of the world. The film would need a universally romantic score that would affect an audience in any part of the world.
To satisfy this requirement, the director turned to composer Austin Wintory. After meeting to discuss the score for another project, both men recognized a similar love and respect for film music and that a collaboration between them could be successful with this common language to communicate.
Captain Abu Raed is a limited edition release of 1,000 units.
