Cliff Martinez has been in the world of film composers for decades and over recent years has firmly placed himself in the same company of heavy-hitters such as Alexandre Desplat and Hans Zimmer, gradually sharpening his style to a sharp point, bringing us to… Continue Reading “MOVIE MUSIK: CLIFF MARTINEZ, WINDING REFN & THE NEON DEMON ”
Many thanks to Natalie of writerlovesmovies for writing this awesome essay, analysing Hans Zimmer’s incredibly tense composition for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. The score in its entirety follows this piece. Despite being disconnected from the film, it is still amazing to listen and lose yourself in the atmosphere. Christopher… Continue Reading “MOVIE MUSIK: DUNKIRK ”
The power of this film, much like 2001 – a film that this draws many influences from – would not be the experience that it is without Johann Johannsson’s bespoke soundtrack to accompany it. It hits every note to match its accompanying scene perfectly.… Continue Reading “MONDAY @ THE MUSIC – ARRIVAL”

When I saw this film, it didn’t take long for me to decide that I was going to buy the soundtrack. As the film continued this decision was only further cemented, and by the time the credits rolled I stayed in my chair, waiting… Continue Reading “MONDAY @ THE MUSIC – IT FOLLOWS OST”
Whiplash – the ultimate film for a die-hard music fan, and for drummers especially. The songs played by the jazz ensemble of the film are fantastic tracks, but how does the rest of this album hold up? When I got my grubby paws on… Continue Reading “MONDAY @ THE MUSIC – WHIPLASH OST”
Okay so when I wrote about Inside Llweyn Davis two weeks ago, I was intending to continue my analysis of the music within the film and OST. However, as I tried to write new insights, I realised that I have covered everything musical about… Continue Reading “MONDAY @ THE MUSIC: – INHERENT VICE OST”
I feel I must preface this piece by separating this record from most other soundtracks. There is no classical music to be found here, nor are there many pre-existing songs. No, thanks to the immense talent drafted by the Coens, this is an album… Continue Reading “MONDAY @ THE MUSIC: INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS OST”
