Host Broadcaster RTP invited seven Portuguese composers from different musical areas to create an original soundtrack based on the narrative of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest and its visual identity. The soundtrack had to consist of various musical pieces, adapted both to the needs of the television shows as well the several parallel events taking place across Lisbon.
The main theme created for this edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will have several declinations, which you will be able to hear during the three live shows in May.
Luís Figueiredo is the author, director and music producer of the soundtrack, which was performed by the Orquestra Filarmonia das Beiras, conducted by António Lourenço. Rui Guerreiro and Luís Figueiredo recorded and mixed the tune, all under supervision of Viagens a Marte for RTP.
