Editorial Reviews

Presenting the original motion picture score to the acclaimed 20th Century Fox motion picture Solaris, released in 2002, starring George Clooney and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Previously out-of-print, composer Cliff Martinez's (Traffic, Narc, The Limey) strikingly atmospheric score returns completely remastered and sounding better than ever. Praised as a 'dream-like wash of sound' by BBC Music and a musical journey that 'leaves the listener floating free' by Soundtrack. net, Solaris is a thoughtful, meaningful score that resonates emotionally with the listener. CD booklet features exclusive in-depth liner notes by Julie Kirgo.

Soderbergh's version of Solaris is criminally underrated, and a large part of the film's magnificent atmosphere is due to Cliff Martinez. His score is unlike anything he's composed before or since, melding a variety of specialty instruments with a stark, cold sound and cyclical musical cells. Influences from Ligeti and Glass are noticeable, but Martinez structures the music in such a way that it seems more homage or fusion. It's very much a score of color and tone, overwhelmingly cold and troubled but with moments of warmth. It's well-suited to contemplation, meditation, or writing and is worthy of note as an important piece of music apart from the film.

I can't tell you how many times I've told people that I love the movie Solaris (the Clooney re-make, not the Russian original) only to get that odd stare and perhaps the revealing "Oh,
really?" response.

The music is haunting, and I found myself putting the cd into the player and going to the menu just to have it as background. Now, I've ordered the soundtrack. I can't tell you why I think the music is so deeply poignant. Others here have written far more eloquently than I have.

It would be interesting to determine the percentage of people who liked or loved the movie who also feel the same way about the soundtrack, and vice-versa. The music, somehow, is connected to what happens in the movie, tied to it, linked to the characters, space, and Solaris itself.

A most remarkable musical accomplishment.

Great CD for creating a little moody background. Easy music to work or study to. I find it hypnotic enough to just keep it on "repeat" in my CD player and have it going for hours. Don't get me wrong though--I'm not saying its boring! Perhaps the perfect CD to curl up with your lover on a rainy night(if you saw the movie, you'd know why). Between the CD and the movie, the music always makes me think of rain. I found out that the unplaceable sounds the artist uses are custom-built steel drums. Check him out on Myspace. I loved the movie as well.

The soundtrack to the film Solaris is one of my all time favorite soundtracks. It is ambient, moody, edgy, vibrant, and emotional. The instruments and the textures and the simplicity of the melodies are incredible. Whenever I listen to the tracks, I lose myself in thought, in my imagination. It's an inspiring soundtrack, and I highly recommend it.

Solaris was a great movie and a lot of the mood of the film is thanks to the music. The soundtrack is great for chilling at home, reading, or working and is always nice to listen to. Every time it is on at my house and people are over, they ask what the music is.

I listen to this at work, on loop. Like my own elevator music, but quite enjoyable. There's just enough variety to keep it interesting yet not distracting. It's also great as wake-up music. Good purchase...

It's fairly known that a great movie with a horrible soundtrack or score isn't that great of a movie. If you're like me and have watched Solaris several times - and then you go to listen to the score, you'll actually remember the scenes in which that part of the score was playing without looking at the name of the track. It's like listening to the movie, without seeing it and without dialogue. You'll get addicted to it.
