Product Description

Product Description

Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, the space adventure Gravity has been a box office smash earning over $400m worldwide so far after just one month of release. British composer Steven Price has worked through many roles in music since graduating with a First Class music degree from Cambridge. He had been a successful programmer, arranger and musician before Howard Shore employed him as a music editor on the scores for The Lord Of The Rings trilogy which were followed by Batman Begins in the same role. Striking out into the field of film composing he found success with the sci-fi comedy Attack The Block followed by The World's End this year. The score for Gravity is integral to the film as Price explains, "From my earliest meetings with Alfonso (Cuarn, director) it was clear the score in Gravity would play a crucial and expanded role. With no sound in space, the music was integral to underscore the emotional journey". "Steven Price doesn''t appear opposite Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in Alfonso Cuarn''s "Gravity," but he may as well be the film's third co-star. Price is the film''s composer and his score is so vital and unique that it's hard to imagine "Gravity" working as well as it does without the 36-year-old''s contributions". - The Huffington Post

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, very impressive 6 Jan 2014
By Harby
The best score I have heard in a long time. It added so much to the movie, carrying it in many places due to realism requiring little to no sound effects throughout very dramatic scenes.

A further development/evolution of scores for Transformers and other Hans Zimmer works (i.e. experimenting with the nature of sound itself and not just the tunes played by an orchestra, to breath new life into movie soundtracks), the tracks do an excellent job of both capturing one's emotions and portraying the progressive shift of setting throughout the movie.

Many clever tricks are used during exterior space scenes (e.g. music played backwards, sharp transitions, static noise) and there's a great feeling of continuity as the same core theme is played in different ways to reflect how space can both be beautiful and horrifying.

I particularly like how the degree of distortion correlates perfectly to where each scene is set - pure female vocals represent Earth, while low synthesised tones represent the worst that space can throw at someone - also serving as leitimotif for the villainous debris field.

We begin in space, with a lot of the latter distortion, culminating in the terrifying ISS sequence where if you listen closely mother Earth even sings a warning/lament for Dr. Stone just before the catastrophe begins. After this ultimate terror, the same scare theme gradually becomes more upbeat until "Shenzou" perfectly mirrors the final scenes as action transitions from space to Earth while distortion is completely overpowered by pure vocals and a no-longer-synthesised orchestra. It's like the vacuum of space was messing up the soundtrack throughout, and this interference is finally banished once we get back into the atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 19 Dec 2013
By Aemaeth
I went to see gravity, as many people must have, for what I assumed to be amazing special effects. I expected very little else. I walked out if that cinema red eyed and speechless. Not only had the visual effects been above and beyond even my highest expectations but the story itself (even the cheesy-at-times dialogue) drew me in.

But the one element that truly captivated me; that tied story to character and made me believe what I was singing and feel what the characters were feeling, was the score. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful, awe inspiring, captivating and emotional pieces of sound track work I have heard in years.

I pre ordered this CD while walking out of the cinema after the second or third time I saw the film. That should be enough to make someone curious. I could write a comparative description comparing it to the likes of say Kronos Quartet or other masters of modern film score but I would rather simply sing it's praises and let others make up their own mind.

The track Shenzou will have you gripping the arms of your chair.

Steven Price I salute you sir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like Tangerine Dream 17 Feb 2014
By JohnH
just listened to the whole of the soundtrack. Excellent. If you like this style of music you should check out Tangerine Dreams early stuff, such as their albums - Zeit, Alpha Centauri, Phaedra, Rubycon and the Socerer. In particular Zeit. I love this sort of music. It's best listened to in a darkened room through a really good set of headphones with a nice bottle of red. To infinity, and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 23 Dec 2013
I love this. In a similar vein to some of Hans Zimmers music. Really captures the frightening clastrophobic vacuum of space. Has a great theme running through the music and as with all great film music, you can listen to the whole album and enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant stop listening to this... 1 Dec 2013
By Mike47
I loved this movie and felt that about 50 percent of it's success is down to the wonderful soundtrack. It's different to lots of usual blockbuster fanfares.... it has no percussion, but works great. Lots of background noise that you hear in the film is here. A stunning effort that takes you back into space.
