EDITORS’ NOTES

With echoing children's voices and portentous piano melodies, opener “Every 27 Years” sets the right tone for IT. The distressing and melodic tunes of Benjamin Wallfisch’s soundtrack oscillate between the innocence of childhood (“Paper Boat”) and the terror of potentially discovering what really lies in the depths of the film’s murky basements and sewers (“You’ll Float Too”).

Magnificent in Every Sense of the Word

lucycparish123,

IT as a film has so much more to offer than jump scares and terrifying special effects that will hoard in all those scary movie lovers. For it's a movie that breathes childhood nostalgia upon you every second, makes you laugh alongside your fellow audience members, and sit in awe at the unsettling nature of the entity, IT, we see in the film. Not only is it a good horror film with a solid plot and phenomenal characterization, but it's a spectacular coming of age story at its finest. And the soundtrack is no different. Benjamin Wallfisch has done an epic job at creating a score filled with curiosity, terror, suspense, romance, hope, and the overwhelming feeling of becoming your own person while dealing with outside world forces. The soundtrack is of stunning quality and has a beautiful variety of sounds and ear experiences. One track you're being screamed at by a screeching noise, the next your alongside Beverly and her exploration of teen sexuality, which is accompanied by stellar strings and piano, amongst other instruments of course. I highly recommend not only a view of the film itself, but a proper listen session for this soundtrack.

About Benjamin Wallfisch

Benjamin Wallfisch is a British composer, keyboardist, conductor, and orchestrator known primarily for film and television music. His diverse résumé includes such films as the period drama Hidden Figures, Blade Runner 2049, and Stephen King's It, the first two of which he scored with Hans Zimmer.

Born in London, England in 1979 to professional classical musicians (violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch and cellist Raphael Wallfisch), he began playing piano at the age of five and composing at six. Wallfisch went on to study composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the University of Manchester, and, as a postgraduate, the Royal Academy of Music. Subsequent work involved the BBC, a commissioned ballet, the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and the English Chamber Orchestra, just to name a few affiliations.

Wallfisch made his debut as main composer on a feature film in 2005 with Lars von Trier's Dear Wendy. Over the next ten years, he worked on a variety of cinema and TV projects, among them The Escapist (2008), Hammer of the Gods (2013), and the Steven Spielberg-produced documentary short Auschwitz (2015). In the meantime, he also worked as conductor and orchestrator on soundtrack recordings such as V for Vendetta (2005), Atonement (2007), and Jane Eyre starring Mia Wasikowska (2011). During that period, he composed additional music for the likes of 12 Years a Slave (2013) and The Little Prince (2015).

Becoming more in demand as a composer, his 2016 scores included Gore Verbinski's A Cure for Wellness, the sports documentary Bobby, the horror films Lights Out and Within, and Best Picture Oscar nominee Hidden Figures. The latter earned a Golden Globe nomination in the category of Best Original Score for the team of Wallfisch, Zimmer, and Pharrell Williams. The year 2017 saw the release of films and accompanying score recordings for Wallfisch's Bitter Harvest (Varèse Sarabande), Annabelle: Creation (Silva Screen), It (WaterTower Music), and Blade Runner 2049 (Epic). ~ Marcy Donelson
