“Solaris. It is one of the few soundtracks of mine that I can still stand to listen to. I also think it was a score that made the greatest contribution to the film for which it was written." Cliff Martinez
In December 2013, Invada will release on vinyl for the very first time, Cliff Martinez’s cult original score to the 2002 film ‘Solaris’. Hailed as one of the most influential modern soundtracks, this is a hugely important project for Invada, and they are proud to be continuing their relationship with Cliff Martinez after releasing the ‘Drive’ soundtrack last year.
This is the original soundtrack to the acclaimed 20th Century Fox motion picture ‘Solaris’, released in 2002, directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring George Clooney. Soderbergh says on Martinez’s pivotal role and his score, "I relied on it not only to unify the film emotionally, but to import actual narrative information."
Previously only released on CD, composer Cliff Martinez's (‘Drive’, ‘Spring Breakers’, ‘Contagion’, ‘Traffic’) strikingly atmospheric score will be released by Invada on customised black vinyl, white vinyl and picture disc with three different album artworks.
Described by BBC Music as "A brooding slow, meditative work” and a musical journey that "leaves the listener floating free" by Soundtrack.net, ‘Solaris’ is a thoughtful, evocative and highly seductive score that still fully resonates with the listener more than a decade after it was first released.
Soundtrack culture is a growing phenomenon. A genre that’s been widely overlooked (outside of specialist areas) for a considerable time is now, thanks to the continued work of labels like Invada (run by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow alongside label boss Redg Weeks), very much on the ascent and impossible to ignore. More consumer awareness for these incredible works are resulting in record numbers of sales, whilst BBC 4 TV has just commenced broadcasting a new series exploring the history, development and importance of the soundtrack.
The soundtrack album is no longer reserved for cult aficionados, now it is becoming a ‘must have’ piece of art.
Cliff Martinez’s ‘Solaris’ is one of these works.
