Ambient Music Guide Review – Solaris by Cliff Martinez



Is Cliff Martinez’s Solaris the best sci-fi film score since Vangelis’ opus for Blade Runner (1982)? Martinez’s effort may have equals in the sci-fi sphere, but nothing surpasses it for originality and haunting atmosphere. Martinez and American filmmaker Steven Soderberg have worked together for many years and their collaborations have always been interesting, notably Traffic (2000), Contagion (2011) and Sex Lies & Videotape (1989), even if the accompanying soundtrack albums for those films are hit and miss affairs. Solaris, however, is completely unified as a standalone album. – by Mike G
