Not usually one for soundtrack albums - I find that music written to accompany visuals often falls flat without them.
But I recently saw the film 'Arrival' which is a sort of cross between 'Close Encounters' and '2001' and something else. Anyway it is an amazing movie that all sci-fi enthusiasts should get around to seeing.

But the music is stunning. Try to imagine a collaboration between Brian Eno, Arvo Part and Steve Reich. The Icelandic componist Johan Johannsson was busy creating the music while the film was being shot and the mood of the film was adjusted to fit in with the music. This is a soundtrack that can be listened to on its own: captivating, chilling, soothing, disturbing.

Johannsson started out in as a punk guitarist, discovered synths and then began to compose Classical works with his recordings being released on the famous Deutsche Grammofon label. Unfortunately he died a couple of years ago, only 49 and cause unknown. Sad.

Don't do what I did. I put this on and fell asleep, waking up suddenly to bizarre alien sounds that had me wondering if I'd been abducted in a UFO.

Funny where this can take you.

How about a recording of a Nightingale singing as bombers fly past from 1942

This was released on the HMV label as a double album (search Youtube for that one).

Which inspired an Album Title for Manfred Mann's Earth Band

Which is no doubt lurking somewhere in Fretless' collection :mrgreen:

And how about some poetry (not for the faint hearted) from Yorkshire.
