About this item

Living up to the 35 year legacy of the greatest soundtrack ever written was always going to be a tall order, and director Denis Villeneuve replaced longterm collaborator and electronic genius Jóhann Jóhannsson (check out the sound design in Arrival!) with box office duo Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch in the hopes of harnessing the heart of Vangelis’s masterpiece. A perfect marriage of melody and sound design, Zimmer & Wallfisch succeeded in creating a score which echoed the plaintive synth tones and dystopian sonics of the original, while utilising every bit of contemporary sound science to soundtrack the action with wall shaking bass and frequencies you feel rather than hear. A worthy successor to Vangelis' legendary original.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: A superbly dystopian marriage of pulsing drone and brooding synths, slowly forming into a visceral maelstrom of atmospheric pressure. Beautifully realised, and every bit as important as Vangelis' seminal outing.
