Music Without Words part 4
My only other soundtrack is Vangelis's score for Bladerunner. A great case where sounds and vision is a perfect fit. Even without reference to the film if you heard the music I'm sure some future landscape would form in your mind.
What I didn't realise that due to some depute Vangelis blocked the release of the soundtrack at the time of the film's release so the studio hired some session musicians to "recreate" the score and it was 12 years after the release of the film for the original soundtrack to be released.
I've cheated a bit with this one as the track I've chosen feautres Rutger Hauer's classic dying speech which I think the actor came up with himself.
