Milan Records announces the April 2 release of CHAOS WALKING (ORIGINAL SCORE) with music by Marco Beltrami and Brandon Roberts. Available for preorder now, the album features score music from the highly anticipated film. The score continues a long tradition of collaborations between the two-time Academy Award®-nominated composers Beltrami and Roberts, who also garnered an Emmy® Award together for their work on Free Solo.
Of the soundtrack, Beltrami and Roberts say, “The score for Chaos Walking provided a unique opportunity for us to create a musical language for a fictitious world that was simultaneously both familiar and alien, and in so doing, explore crossing genres that are rarely combined. There are otherworldly sci-fi elements, as well as classic gritty western themes. We had a lot of fun implementing new instruments that would define this cross pollination. It was an adventure to live in this new musical world.”
To herald the release of the album, lead singles “Friendship Theme” and “Posse on the Move / Exploring the Ship” arrive today – listen here. “Friendship Theme” stirs up longing through emotionally charged strings. With its slow tempo, the track ebbs between serious and sweet passages buoyed by bold and purposeful forward motion. Representing the other end of the spectrum, “Posse on the Move / Exploring The Ship” hinges on evocative, yet eerie synthesizers as a dark crescendo culminates on a fleeting moment of brooding intensity.
In the not too distant future, Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) discovers Viola (Daisy Ridley), a mysterious girl who crash lands on his planet, where all the women have disappeared and the men are afflicted by “the Noise” – a force that puts all their thoughts on display. In this dangerous landscape, Viola’s life is threatened – and as Todd vows to protect her, he will have to discover his own inner power and unlock the planet’s dark secrets. From the director of The Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow and based on the best-selling novel The Knife of Never Letting Go, Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland star with Mads Mikkelsen, Demián Bichir, Cynthia Erivo, Nick Jonas, Kurt Sutter, and David Oyelowo in Chaos Walking.
Directed by Doug Liman from a screenplay by Patrick Ness and Christopher Ford, based upon the book “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness, Chaos Walking is produced by Doug Davison, Allison Shearmur, Erwin Stoff, and Alison Winter.
