Listening To Blade Runner

The latest episode of Nerdwriter – a weekly video series by Evan Puschak – takes a look at Listening To Blade Runner

Listening To Blade Runner discusses the sound, sound design and music of Blade Runner – and how they blend seamlessly to create a unique world:

The Blade Runner soundtrack, by Vangelis, set the mood for the film immediately – with music so distinctive that it has a life outside the film as one of the iconic sounds of synthesis.

The upcoming Blade Runner 2049 sequel will features a soundtrack by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson

  1. My favorite movie and music score of all time.

    I played the Blade Runner game before i saw the movie because i was -1 when the movie came out. The Blade Runner game had crezee low resolution even for back then, except from the backdrops. The Vangelis sounds pumped that game to the level where you could have the same feeling i had when a saw the movie, its so power full you wish you could go on a vacation there.

    Looking forward to hearing the new music and i wil give it some time and not judge it to soon because its easily ruined by expectations, so keep them out 🙂

    1. To give credit where it’s due, the game soundtrack was actually by Frank Klepacki. Obviously heavily influenced but all original recordings – he didn’t have access to the mastertapes. Google ‘blade runner Westwood edition’ and you should be able to find an unofficial soundtrack for download somewhere.
