Indonesian Music Takes Stage in Gareth Edwards Film: "The Creator"

Who has enjoyed the latest film from director Gareth Edwards? This science fiction action thriller became a hot topic shortly after its release.

One of the highlights of the movie is the existence of the Republic of Asia. In addition, there is also New Southeast Asia, which is a unified region of several countries in Southeast Asia.
As you watch the movie, you will often hear different languages from the Southeast Asian region, and there is even a soundtrack sung by Indonesian musicians.

In total, there are three Indonesian songs that are part of the movie's soundtrack, namely "Kasih Suci", "Hanny", and "Hari Yang Mulya". These songs are performed by the famous rock band from Palembang, Indonesia that was popular in the 1970s, Golden Wing.

The album "The Creator" is composed by Hans Zimmer, a composer known for his music in blockbuster movies such as Dune, The Lion King, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Inception, Rain Man, and Interstellar.

According to producer Jim Spencer, director Gareth Edwards had a desire to encourage and appreciate local talent in the Asian region, so many unique elements were incorporated into the sci-fi film. One such aspect is the use of several Asian locations.

Gareth Edwards also revealed that the film's production team traveled more than 10,000 miles to visit 80 different locations in eight different countries or regions. They traveled to countries such as Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In an interview with The Walt Disney Company (9/29), Gareth Edwards shared that the film's production team traveled to various locations, including volcanoes in Indonesia, the Himalayas, temples in Cambodia, and the city of Tokyo. They searched for the most suitable locations, conducted the shooting process, and did the editing. After that, they also designed the world that would be depicted in the movie.

"The Creator" is set in the year 2070, where the story focuses on the events after an AI destroys the city of Los Angeles. Western countries respond with a total ban on AI, while Eastern countries continue to develop AI technology until robots become living beings considered equal to humans.
