Jasha Klebe’s score to ITV’s 6-part nature series, presented by Stephen Fry. The awe-inspiring and ambitious series brings an innovative, interlinked story to reveal the incredible ways in which all life is impacted by the changing seasons.

Filmed in more than 60 locations, the series covers a wide range of animals, including African elephants, polar bears, blacktip sharks, chipmunks, grizzly bears, cheetahs, leatherback turtles, pandas and zebras, among many, many others.

Jasha Klebe comments “On approaching the music for the ITV series, “A Year On Planet Earth” I wanted to create a score that was lyrical, vibrant, and a joyous celebration of the natural world. Using a kaleidoscope of instruments and textures, I crafted soundscapes to be as rich and colorful as the animals and environments they portrayed. Starting with ambient vocal calls, cascading strings, and a jubilant percussive motif - the heartbeat of the series - in the opening suite; to stacked ambient layers of my vocals in Bush Fire; delicate piano and wistful solo cello in Ice Bears; to the sweeping melodic song of Monarch Butterfly; I set out to evoke a wondrous, emotional journey, as we transitioned from each new season over a year on planet earth.”

Composer Jasha Klebe was brought up in a musical family. He studied classical piano and trombone for over 15 years before, he moved to Los Angeles to start working at Remote Control Productions under Hans Zimmer.
