Published Aug 01, 2013Following last month's news that composer Eduard Artemyev's original score for director Andrei Tarkovsky's 1972 classic Solaris is getting the reissue treatment, it's now been revealed that Cliff Martinez's score for Steven Sodenbergh's 2002 adaptation of the sci-fi tale will soon be pressed up on wax as well.
Portishead's Geoff Barrow will serve up the first-ever vinyl edition of Martinez's moody score via his Invada imprint, though a due date has yet to be delivered. CD versions had previously appeared around the release of the film, as well as a Russia-only cassette edition.
Of Martinez's ambient synth-and-strings work for the film, director Sodenbergh had previously said, "I relied on it not only to unify the film emotionally, but to import actual narrative information."
You can check out a pair of pieces from the score in the player down below.
Martinez's Solaris will be issued on black and white vinyl, and the soundtrack will come housed in one of two jackets featuring film star George Clooney. You can see one up above and both over here.
Martinez had previously worked with Invada to issue scores for Drive and Only God Forgives, though the former was recently served up in North America via Mondo.
Artemyev's old-school Solaris score, meanwhile, arrives October 1 via Superior Viaduct.
