EDITORS’ NOTES

If you could create the sound of floating in outer space, it would probably resemble British composer Steven Price's score for the astronaut film Gravity. Each piece is built on long, suspended chords from chilly-sounding strings and synthesizers; in "Don't Let Go," the tension builds for 11 minutes. "Aningaaq" is a near-silent soundscape, with lightly echoed piano, that evokes the dislocation one might feel on an interplanetary trip. The only resolution comes on "Shenzou," which uses a drum machine to give a majestic, rising feel.

Gravity

In the silence of space, the perfect soundtrack can still be heard.

Perfect Score for the Movie

The perfect soundtrack for an equally amazing movie!

Wow.

I couldn't ask for a better soundtrack to such a beautiful movie. While watching the movie, at first it seemed like it would be better without music, being in space and all. But when those signature swelling trills kicked in, I knew it was an incredible score. And by the credits I was just blown away. Outstanding movie, amazing soundtrack.
