News - Johann Johannson to Score 'Bladerunner 2'
Johann Johannson will officially be scoring the highly anticipated sequel to Blade Runner. This isn't much of a surprise as this composer is a frequent collaborator with director Denis Villeneuve. His scores don't particularly stand out like most bombastic blockbuster music does, but Johannson crafts soundscapes that suit the atmosphere and tone of the films their featured in perfectly.
I think this was a smart choice for various reasons. For one, I trust Denis Villeneuve. He has a great track-record and has yet to direct a bad film. Most of the decisions he has made as a director have been well-calculated, resulting in some of the better films I've seen lately. In addition to this; Johannson has composed scores for all of his films, showing that they have a sturdy and reliable relationship. Also, Blade Runner was known for its electronic score that felt futuristic. Give Johann Johannson's music a spin and you'll understand why he is a solid pick.
I'm pretty confident that this Blade Runner sequel might actually be good. The talent behind the film is undeniable and I can't wait to see more of this film as it gets closer to it's release on October 5, 2017.
