Ex Machina – a new film, directed by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Dredd) will feature a score by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow and composer Ben Salisbury.
Barrow and Salisbury previously worked together on an rejected score for the 2012 movie Dredd (adapted for the big screen by Garland). Barrow and Salisbury later revisited and expanded on this material, which led to DROKK; Music Inspired By Mega-City One – an album of Carpenter-esque dystopian electronica.
The trailer, above, features an excerpt of their music for the film.
Geoff Barrow is a founding member of Portishead and producer/label owner of Invada Records UK. Ben Salisbury is a soundtrack composer, with over 200 film and TV credits to his name, including the last three of David Attenborough’s “Life Of…” series.
Ex Machina is set for release in April of 2015.
