Apocalypse, The Dol Chronicles Soundtrack Pre-order Image

Apocalypse: The Doll Chronicles (Original Soundtrack), the soundtrack to the award-winning short film, Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles is NOW AVAILABLE!.

“Franco Esteve has delivered on the titles promise in the aptly titled track, Apocalypse. Unsettling and thought provoking, Apocalypse is an exploration in dissonance and contrast that weaves and twirls as it moves towards its sudden conclusion. A piece worthy of our current uncertain times.” – Nagamag Music Magazine Review, July 2021

“the haunting melodies and atmospheres will hold your attention scrupulously as it gradually magnifies in darkness and urgency… Hauntingly atmospheric and staggering in its scope, “Apocalypse: The Doll Chronicles (Original Soundtrack)” is here to assert itself as deeply compelling evidence for the gargantuan artistic value of Franco Esteve’s scoring work.” – Jamsphere Music Magazine Review, August 2021

“suitably dark and delicious, epic and expansive, perfect to drive a film about a woman living on the edge of reality and being chased across a desolate and dystopian landscape by the darkness and trauma of her own past.” – Dancing About Architecture Review, August 2021

8 out of 10: Interesting soundtrack to an interesting film… Franco Esteve presents a fantastic sound spectacle on the soundtrack… an interesting musical companion, behind which there is not only a fantastic composer, but also an artist who is fantastic with different timbres , acoustic paintings come to life… Franco Esteve proves to be a sound tinkerer who has the right feel for appealing musical accompaniments”She Wolf, German Music Magazine, September 2021 (in German)


Music is an integral part of my creative process, creating it, listening to it, thinking about it. It is yet another expression of beauty that has been part of my life since a very young age, having composed music and played piano throughout most of my life. It was after filming Reaction, The Doll Chronicles, that I realized I had created much more than the theme, but music that served my idea of The Doll Chronicles quite well. So, I set out to create more music for the films, some of which ended up as the score for Paranoia, The Doll Chronicles and for Consequence, The Doll Chronicles and Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles. From there, I’ve explored other musical areas and continue to release other music in multiple genres and for other projects. You can find all my current releases here:

Though my initial releases were focused on scoring for films, and I do have a special love for the genre, I’ve never thought of myself tied down to it. I love to explore all genres of music and even beyond them. As I mention in my biography, a single playlist can jump from Nine Inch Nails to Beethoven to Snoop Dogg to Led Zeppelin to The Ink Spots to John Barry to She Wants Revenge.

“Esteve has composed a glistening tune that is simultaneously diaphanous and sensitive, yet emancipated and emotive.” – Huffington Post review of The Wait.

With the music single releases, the Mallorca 360 Season 1 Soundtrack  and 2019’s contemporary classical crossover music concept album, The Hunt, I’ve certainly moved beyond the films and begun to explore other stories and expressions with my releases. No matter what though, the focus is always on beauty, on expression, on communicating, on the story, on the feeling. It’s one of the things I love about music, how it expresses itself so variedly and how it can incite all sorts of feelings and interpretations upon the listener. It’s yet another form of seeking and expressing beauty in all its variants.

“The true magic of “The Hunt” is that Franco Esteve, with all his cinematic dexterity did not compose this music as a background to any film. Rather, he composed as a backdrop to life itself…” – JamSphere Magazine review of The Hunt.
