EDITORS’ NOTES

The film scores of Iranian-born/U.S.-educated Nima Fakhrara (Exists, Gatchaman, The Courier) are known for their experimental bent, the product of a composer informed not only by Persian classical music but university studies in anthropology and ethnomusicology. To score William Eubank’s thought-provoking sci-fi movie, Fakhrara says he "wanted to achieve a certain sense of mystery and tension throughout the film. Our characters are being pulled and pushed in many directions, so the music had to feel the same. We also wanted keep the audience guessing throughout the film by scoring scenes in unconventional ways.” Fakhrara’s expansive sensibilities also drive him to craft new instruments from industrial scraps. Here he built "three instruments that became the signature sounds of the project: the Pagoda (forged from a high-tension insulator), the Transmission, and the Steel Marimba. They are used in many different ways, both by using their natural sounds and manipulating the sounds to get cool textures.”

Trailer Music

According to the composer's twitter, that music used in the trailer, which I love, is a collaboration with Damian Wagner, and is not available yet, but hopefully soon. Even without it, I'm finding the score to be very good, though I want the trailer track too.
