Back in the early 2000’s I bought Blade Runner (The Director’s Cut) on DVD for $35, 6 months before my family owned a DVD-player. I would look at the case and read the chapter list, and stare at the artwork in anticipation. When I could finally watch it, I did in awe. I couldn’t fully understand the philosophical questions, but I knew it was something special, and I wished I could see it in theatres.
I just came out of “2049” and my wish came true. Beautiful movie, great music, and a worthy sequel that steps up the idea the first explores.
I’ve seen a few of these on deviantArt.com and thought I’d do my own. I tried to use just logos, and symbols to represent each influence. Do your own!
If there’s one album from 2011 that best groomed my ear canals (and still does), it was Galactic Melt by Com Truise.
I’ve mentioned Seth Haley’s project multiple times on twitter, simply because I think it’s genius. It sounds like nothing I’ve heard before yet reminds me of 1980’s sci-fi.
Think of Marty McFly in the time-traveling DeLorean in SLOW MOTION, or Deckard chasing replicants through dank streets in SLOW MOTION. Each with thin coloured lights zooming across the screen. That’s what the music is to me.
Tracks like ‘VHS Sex’, and ‘Glawio’ are probably my favourites, although the video for ‘Brokendate’ is pretty slick!
I’d really have to say that this is the music for the future, right next to Michael McCann‘s soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
