Woman In The Moon
Jeff Mills is a figure with such a keen interest in futuristic and otherworldly matters that many people suspect him of actually being an alien, or joke about it at least. The techno wizard has composed a wealth of sci-fi influenced music in his back catalogue. One of our favourite releases is his rescoring the 1929 silent film Woman in the Moon. The 32-track strong release that spanned across three CDs is cinematic, combining classical elements with warped techno beats to create a suitably mystical backing to Fritz Lang’s classic.
Oblivion was a Hollywood blockbuster with a massive budget and M83 recorded a soundtrack epic enough to match the striking visuals. The French band went no-holds-barred big on the production, making use of sweeping strings, soaring vocals, crescendoing drum patterns and celestial synths to accompany Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman and Olga Kurylenko’s battle to save earth from an alien-threatened extinction.
