Ocean Groove with Maestro Ning
Ocean Groove with Maestro Ning is premiered at the SkySymphony, SkyAvenue at Resorts World Genting on 19th May 2018. This is the first original Computer Graphic animated production by Genting Studios.
“Ocean Groove” is an original composition by Emmy Award-winning composer Gigi Meroni.
Who is Maestro Ning ?
For benefit of doubt – Maestro means “Master” or “teacher”, which is a honorific title of respect commonly used in the context of Western Classical Music.
Ning (which means peace in Chinese), is a computer graphic character in the show – the talented sea turtle – who is the head of the ragtag orchestra in the ocean.
Maestro Ning stands on a broken sea ship steering wheel at the bottom of the sea, commanding a concert of different sea creatures, each with different musical talent, composing a beautiful and magical music masterpiece at a stage below the sea.
The creatures of the sea includes various ocean fishes, puffers, angel fishes, shells, octopus, crustacean and many more.
The show was produced over four months by the Genting Studio team located in Los Angeles and Kuala Lumpur, directed by Guy Vasilovich, executive produced by Daniel Regis Brown and Steven Lim Tze Siang.
The musical journey starts with a warm introduction of musical talents of various fishes and crustacean, then progress to a fast paced music with fantasy, and ends with a grand finale with fireworks in the air. At the very end, an innocent worm on a hook drop by and disperse the harmony of the orchestra (likely in pursuit to the tasty worm).
The forest present itself as a bio-luminescent universe with plants and animals depicted in colorful fluorescent gesture and artwork. It tells a story where biodiversity of animals and plants can coexist in harmony in this universe.
Featuring in the show are endangered species of Southeast Asia such as Sumatran Tiger, Bornean Orangutan, Asian Elephants, Sumatran Rhinoceros, Mouse Deer and Rhinoceros Hornbills. Exotic plants like the Rafflesia is also in the mix.
It starts with showcase of all different types of animals and plants, then ends with a harmonious mix where everything is linked together.
The Urban Symphony represent the life of a normal city folk. It tells the story on how boring city folks can be, having everything like clockwork, with almost everyone doing the same thing everyday. It also tells how power of love can change all these in a drastic life changing event.
The story started off in the morning when the alarm bells rang and many are reluctant to get up from bed as anticipating another boring day. Every chores in the morning sounds very draggy all along with frustration on simple mistakes. No one is spared from the boring symphony at the beginning.
Then story continues with boring journey to work, until suddenly, a guy bump into a girl – the main actor of the show – sparks some misunderstanding and also love at first sight.
The boring individuals slowly spice up their life in the power of love and becoming a perfect couple. This marked the change in their symphony into a more romantic rhythm, before progress into a fast paced symphony and dance celebrated by their friends in congratulation. Life is never the same after that.
