Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil
Cloud Atlas, Sony Music Classical *****
Nominated by the International Film Music Critics Association for best original score for a fantasy film, best film music composition and best original score of the year, Cloud Atlas is a bold and exciting new score. It’s the trio’s best yet – even better than Run Lola Run and Perfume. Combining gorgeous melodies, spare orchestration and dynamic electronica, Tyker, Klimek and Heil inject each of their cues with so much urgent drama, taut suspense, driving action and soaring romance that each functions as full and complete compositions, subverting and transforming scoring conventions with gleeful abandon. Tykwer also wrote and directed Cloud Atlas with the Wachowski siblings.
