WaterTower Music is proud to announce the release of the Gravity – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, digitally on September 17 and on CD on October 1, 2013. Gravity features original music by Steven Price (The World's End, Attack the Block). The film has earned rave reviews at film festivals and screenings in advance of its October 4, 2013 release.
To accomplish the creation of music in the vacuum of space, Price needed to bridge music with sound in untraditional ways. "From my earliest meetings with Alfonso [Cuarón, director] it was clear the score in Gravity would play a crucial and expanded role," said Price. "With no sound in space, the music was integral to underscore the emotional journey. The music is occasionally abstract, often melodic, but always very intricate, complex and textural. Alfonso and I wanted the score to blur the line between electronic and organic sounds, and there was a lot of experimentation involved in finding the harmonic and sonic language that felt emotionally right and tonally gelled with the amazing visuals."
Towing that line came naturally for composer Steven Price. He is a composer and musician who previously worked as an award-winning music editor. He has written additional music for films, including Pirate Radio and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, collaborating with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Price has also written music for several productions on major UK television networks as well as advertising campaigns in both the UK and the U.S. His accolades include awards for his original Attack the Block score. His score for The World's End was released earlier in 2013.
For Gravity, Price continues, "Alfonso was always very determined that the soundtrack be immersive. As you sit in the theatre, the score literally moves around you. Elements come and go, pulsate and transform, and reflect the journey onscreen in a way that will hopefully add to the total cinematic experience of the film."
Academy Award-winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in Gravity, a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. The film was directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men).
