Release Date:11/03/2017;Notes:Limited gold and red colored vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. Former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Clif Martinez's long-standing collaboration with director Steven Soderbergh ranks right up there with some of the other great composer-director teams in film history, like Bernard Herrmann-Alfred Hitchcock and Ennio Morricone-Sergio Leone, and his 2011 score for the disaster blockbuster Contagion is among his best work. Oddly, it owes some of it's uniqueness to the fact that Soderbergh radically recut the film three diferent times, causing Martinez to adjust the score on the fly, first starting with a more conventional score indebted to thrillers like Marathon Man and The French Connection, then moving in a more dream-like, Tangerine Dream direction, before settling on a sound that incorporated orchestral and electronic timbres into highly propulsive and rhythmic framework. It's like the most chilling, "chill-out" electronica you've ever heard, simultaneously hypnotic and horrifying.;Track List:1. They’Re Calling My Flight;2. Chrysanthemum Complex;3. Placebo;4.
