Oblivion (Film Score) – M83, Anthony Gonzalez, & Joseph Trapanese

Album: Oblivion

Artist: M83, Anthony Gonzalez & Joseph Trapanese

Released: 2013

Description: This sci-fi  album combines electronic and orchestral sounds to create an atmospheric and emotional piece of music. I found some of the choice of older synth/drum pad sounds odd while watching the film, so much so as to point out my distaste while watching the film to my wife (she wasn’t that interested though). However, I did not mind it while listening to the soundtrack and I’ve found its persistent electronic rhythms under the sweeping chords of the orchestra enjoyable while writing and working.
