Having composed the majority of music for the Australian Survivor series, we were engaged to deliver a spectacular re-imaging of the classic Elton John track “I’m Still Standing” for the 2019 launch.

To emphasise the epic nature of the storytelling,  we used vocal elements as varied as children’s choir and tribal chanting to achieve our goal.

Added to the mix were colossal drum tracks and an anthemic orchestral arrangement

Elton’s original vocal can be heard in the track, adding to its authenticity and power.

The production adds to the portfolio of Uncanny Valley’s long lasting relationship with Australian Survivor, having also composed the music for the last two series.

A longplay version of the track was also completed for future release purposes.
