Hotel Artemis is the latest from Martinez and it doesn’t disappoint. Dark, brooding, moody, pulsing, and emotional, Martinez’s music is an awesome spin when you’re looking for that perfect introspective music to rescue you from the realities of life. – Birth.Movies.Death
Ahead of the Hotel Artemis soundtrack vinyl release on October 19 via our partners Invada Records, the good folks at Birth.Movies.Death have run a review of the album, featuring the podcast interview with the film’s composer, Cliff Martinez, hosted by Aaron Vehling (Vehlinggo, The Damn Fine Network). The soundtrack features score by Cliff and a new track by Father John Misty! See vinyl details below and check out the composer interview now at Birth.Movies.Death!
Isham takes an eerie approach that recalls his murderously suspenseful tones for “Kiss the Girls” and “Don’t Say a Word,” with the attacker being good intentions, and the victim privacy. – Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
Film Music Magazine selects Mark Isham’s Black Mirror: Arkangel score for their August Soundtrack Picks! Mark, who has been recognized for just about every award, produced scores for Hollywood’s most diverse film and TV productions, earning an Academy Award® nomination for Best Original Score for Oscar® Winner A River Runs Through It. And, with scores to the critically-acclaimed Nell (starring Jodie Foster), Academy Award®-nominated Reservation Road movie, to the recent the TV score to fairy tale-centric “Once Upon A Time” series, as well as the Lakeshore action film score to Mechanic: Resurrection, what can’t the versatile composer do? In the tech-horror Black Mirror episode, “Arkangel,” Isham provides a haunting, cinematic score to this near future (or near present) story about the potential horrors of helicopter parenting.
We hope you’re just as enraptured by his piano cues like “A Day at the Park,” “Hide and Seek” and “Time Passing I” as we are! Check out Daniel Schweiger’s full review at Film Music Magazine for more on Arkangel!
BLACK MIRROR: ARKANGEL, directed by Jodie Foster, is now streaming on Netflix.

The synth score is one of Martinez’s grittier, more bombastic offerings, offering a harder edge that stands in contrast to some of his variously more ambient, more atmospheric, or more synth-arpeggiator-driven fare. – Vehlinggo
