4.0 out of 5 stars The majesty - and terror - of space October 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD
There has never quite been a film like Gravity. In terms of plot, it's fairly thin - two astronauts, played by George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, suffer a disaster while repairing the Hubble space telescope, and are left floating stranded in space, desperately trying to find a way to safety, and to home. Instead, it is the scope and majesty of Alfonso Cuarón's film that takes audiences to a completely new sensory place. Space has never seemed so vast, so vivid, so beautiful, so terrifying. The cinematography and design of the film makes the viewer feel like it was genuinely shot in space, such is the sense of realism. Much more will be written about the film to convey how stellar it is, but I'm here to talk about the music, which also plays an enormous part in the success of the entire project.

The score for Gravity is by English composer Steven Price, and this is the second of his two major scores in 2013 (the other being the comedy The World's End) - truly his breakout year. Price is a guitar player by trade, who first cut his teeth in the film scoring world working with Trevor Jones on scores such as Dinotopia and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. A sideways move into music editing led him to working with composers as varied as Howard Shore, Anne Dudley, Patrick Doyle, Hans Zimmer and David Arnold - not a bad pedigree! - before he made his feature composing debut in 2011 with the British sci-fi comedy Attack the Block. With these two scores in 2013, and Gravity in particular, Price has announced himself as major new talent in the film scoring world with a bright future ahead of him.

Price's major problem in scoring Gravity was self-imposed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gravity - Original Score September 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
"Gravity" is a fantastic score, one of my favorites of the year. The early tracks have a lot of variety - some evoke a sense of thrills/danger, while others are very calm and fill the listener with a sense of wonder. The tracks near the end of the album (particularly the final three tracks) seem to tie all the themes and emotions together in a way that is dazzling to the ears. I've rarely enjoyed a film score this much on a first listen; and I feel the music will only get better the more you listen to it.

At nearly 72 minutes in length, "Gravity" is a bit longer than most other soundtrack albums. I say the more music the better. In fact, since the movie is just over 90 minutes long, I'd guess we're getting a score here that's probably just about complete.

At the time of this review, I haven't seen the film yet - but after hearing the soundtrack I'm even more excited to do so.

EDIT: Have now seen the movie, it is fantastic. The music has a very prominent role in the film, given the decision to use almost no sound effects. Steve Price's score works very well in the film, but it's just as great to listen to on its own.

Gravity is, without question, one of the best movies I've ever seen in my life, which certainly isn't what I was expecting when I strolled into the theater this past weekend. I have officially been blown away. Every aspect of this movie has been crafted with an attention to detail and a sense of perfectionism that ensures the moviegoer that this project was an absolute labor of passion, and not some big budget cash-in. In my opinion, Gravity has completely changed the definition of what an "action movie" or a "sci fi movie" or a "drama" can be.

That level of perfectionism and attention to detail extends to the soundtrack, which fits the mood and on-screen action like a glove. As the protagonist, Ryan, is subjected to a wild array of powerful emotions, the orchestral soundtrack perfectly matches her feelings, further amplifying them and putting the spectator in her shoes (or space boots, in this case). Whether Ryan is fighting for another breath of oxygen, attempting to survive a wave of space debris, or desperately trying to escape from yet another deteriorating device, the music elevates the mood masterfully- I found myself holding my breath along with her. Gravity is a work of art, and it wouldn't be the same without this terrific soundtrack. It's not so much a movie, it's more like an event or a journey - and it has left me stunned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting. Ethereal. At times, incredibly unnerving. October 8, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Haunting. Ethereal. At times, incredibly unnerving.

With the exception to the last few tracks, this may be one of those scores that is better listened to alongside the film than as a standalone album, but that's not to say it isn't great.

Newcomer Steven Price does a tremendous job subtly weaving the themes that will come to a grand finale by the album's last few tracks early on. During the most intense sequences, Price utilizes an electronic, throbbing crescendo that steadily builds and builds until it's almost hard to listen to, and then sends the whole thing off a cliff and cuts all the sound out completely. The result is pure, unfiltered tension which is most always tempered with something soft and introspective so the listener does not end up grating their finger nails throughout the whole album. If I had one complaint, it would be that while these uncomfortable crescendos work splendidly within the context of the film, hearing them back to back, several times throughout the album, the effect starts to feel a little overused.

Still, excellent excellent excellent.
