CLIFF MARTINEZ

Neue Luxury - - News -

A stir­ring mem­ory can of­ten seem like a movie with­out sound. For over 25 years, Martinez has worked closely with Amer­i­can movie poly­math, Steven Soder­bergh, on evoca­tive film scores that help ren­der mem­o­ries vis­i­ble. His au­ral trade­marks in­clude sparse, dark syn­the­sised lines that ap­pear in­ti­mate one mo­ment and at­mo­spheric the next. In films such as Kafka (1991), So­laris (2002) and Con­ta­gion (2011), Martinez ex­per­i­mented with mu­sic that mim­icked na­ture, like a groan from the earth’s crust or the swoop of a fall­ing me­teor.
