Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury - Ex Machina (Original Soundtrack)
‘Ex Machina’ original soundtrack by Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow.
Ivor Novello Best Original Soundtrack Award 2016.
“It’s this sort of a mix of organic and electronic sounds, which is very appropriate in terms of the subject matter of the film,” as Ben Salisbury told Rolling Stone. In the film, a programmer, played by Domhnall Gleeson, enters a complex relationship with a robot named Ava, played by Alicia Vikander. “We did realize that it would need organic instruments as well as electronic instruments to bring that sort of human element.”
“It wasn’t planned, but what we actually ended up doing was that we did the very organic, real sounds for Ava and the very mechanical, synthesized sound for the humans,” Geoff Barrow told Rolling Stone.
The ‘Ex Machina’ score was mixed at Air Studios and mastered at Optimum with Geoff and Ben present at both sessions.
