Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow - Annihilation Soundtrack Shimmer

Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow

Annihilation Soundtrack Shimmer (2xLP)

Geoff Barrow (Portishead) and Ben Salisbury team up again to score Alex Garland's critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller. Based on Jeff VanderMeer s best selling, Nebula Award winning novel, Southern Reach Trilogy, it stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Oscar Issac, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Tuva Novotny. Portman plays Lena, a biologist and former soldier, who joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X, a sinister phenomenon that s expanding across the American coastline. "Annihilation boasts one of the most audacious climaxes in recent cinema history, and its music is just as haunting." Rolling Stone The score is orchestral, and blended in are synths, diverse sound design, a key theme portrayed on an acoustic guitar, and manipulated vocal effects. The orchestral part is crucial, its ominousness bolstering the suspense and sense of danger that synth patches alone can t possibly achieve here. Vehlinggo
