Well, talent sure seems to run in the Cronenberg family, what with Brandon “Son of David” Cronenberg making waves with diseased horror Antiviral. Equally disturbing is the film’s score by E.C. Woodley, which paints a nightmarish aural image that I imagine is quite effective in the film. Blurring the lines between score and sound design, Woodley’s soundscape is a dissonant and eerie experience that might just keep you up at night.

With Annihilation, the duo crafted a mind-altering soundworld with acoustic guitar, orchestra, a touch of electronics and a four-note motif. – Andy Beta, Rolling Stone
Alex Garland’s Annihilation is one of the most talked-about films of the year, and that also extends into the score by Ivor Novello Award winning and Emmy® nominated composer Ben Salisbury and Beak>/Portishead’s Geoff Barrow. The obsession and veneration expressed by movie and film music critics alike appears insatiable, and to add to the buzz is an interview with Andy Beta for Rolling Stone, who tracked down the composing duo in their Bristol homes! Have you listened to the album or seen the film yet?
