We love Sci-Fi soundtracks here at One Giant Read ...
As a backbeat to wonder and adventure, and occasionally terror and chaos, the Sci-Fi movie genre has been blessed over the years with some of the very best finest music in the universe. Here's a few of our current favourites, and if you have Spotify, you can listen along ...
Solaris Cliff Martinez
Although the original Solaris is an indisputable masterpiece, the George Clooney version is really very good too. This haunting score by Cliff Martinez is a large part of the film’s success.
Blade Runner Vangelis
For some fans, the idea of a Blade Runner sequel is both exciting and terrifying. It has a lot to live up to; not least the original’s wonderful music, by Vangelis.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens John Williams
Okay, we could have chosen any of the soundtracks, or all of them. But right now, we’re loving Force Awakens.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan James Horner
We’re off the fence on this one though: favourite Star Trek film of them all, favourite soundtrack.
Tron Legacy Daft Punk
Ex Machina Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow
A darkly hypnotic soundtrack for a darkly hypnotic film.
The Man Who Fell To Earth Various Artists
Eclectic, exciting soundtrack to Nic Roeg’s extraordinary film, starring the great David Bowie.
Apollo Brian Eno
Brian Eno’s incredible music was first recorded for a television film about the Apollo Missions, called For All Mankind. Spacy, ethereal and endlessly deep.
Gravity Steven Price
Fabulous, Oscar-winning stuff from the movie that does for space exploration what The Towering Inferno did for hi-rise hotels …
Interstellar Hans Zimmer
Wonderful, wonderful stuff from one the best Sci-Fi movies of recent years. The Bach-like S.T.A.Y. is beautiful.
