Invada Records is proud to announce to the release of the score to Alex Garland’s 2015 Sci-fi film EX MACHINA, by Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow on double CD and double vinyl.
The film having already been released in the UK has enjoyed rave reviews including Sight & Sound naming it their ‘Film Of The Week’ and the Guardian describing it as a “dazzlingly good-looking technological thriller”. EX MACHINA is the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the man behind 28 DAYS LATER and SUNSHINE. It stars a trio of rising stars – Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander, who portrays a robot built to test the boundaries between humans and machines.
Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow join forces for a second time since their creation of DROKK, their unused score for 2012 motion picture DREDD, to create the dark, synth heavy score for EX MACHINA. Recently speaking to Gigwise of working with Geoff and Ben, Garland explains: “they have an incredibly high quality control level. I think they’re kind of amazing. What they do is they keep you honest, they are pretty fierce”.
Geoff Barrow says, “It’s been great for Ben and I to be working with Alex again, and hopefully we have written the kind of score an intense sci-fi thriller like this needs” with Salisbury adding "we wanted to slightly get away from the type of soundtrack album that has a huge track-list with lots of short cues. Instead, we’ve tried to put together an album of fuller length tracks, by segueing some of our cues and creating a structure and shape that mirrors the film in some way.” The EX MACHINA ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK will be released as a double CD on May 18th, which includes the 10 tracks included in the film and a bonus CD of material and cues not used in the main album. The double vinyl release will be following shortly.
