Okay, so you got your fill of turbo-charged madness this weekend with the record breaking “Furious 7,” so maybe you need something with a bit of brains to balance things out. Well, this weekend, the sci-fi “Ex Machina” arrives stateside, and besides being “the first great film of 2015,” it’s got a great score by Portishead member Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury. And now you can treat your ears to the whole thing.
Fact Mag debuted the soundtrack and you’ll want to put your headphones on for this one. Synths, strings, sampled brass and the software PaulStretch, the music throbs and pulsates, builds to crescendoes, but also delivers small melodic moments too. Fans of Cliff Martinez or the duo Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans will definitely dig it.
“Ex Machina” opens on April 10th. The soundtrack will be released later this month via Invada Records.
