Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury - Free Fire OST (Score Only)
LP - this is the score only version and does not feature the dialogue or licensed tracks. All score tracks by Barrow & Salisbury are included on this LP.
Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury return to score Ben Wheatley’s 1970s based epic shoot-out Free Fire, executively produced by Martin Scorsese.
The soundtrack was compiled by Ben Wheatley himself and this version features all score tracks by Barrow & Salisbury, dialogue from the film and all license music used in the film (Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Denver, The Real Kids).
Free Fire sees Barrow and Salisbury take a huge directional curve away from their intense, synth-based Ivor Novello award winning score for Ex Machina, with the composers curating a prog-rock, free-jazz, psychedelic journey influenced by bands such as King Crimson, Camel and Magma and tips its hat to the Lalo Schifrin thriller genre scores of that era.
Geoff Barrow: “It was brilliant to work with Ben Wheatley, Amy Jump and the Rook Films crew again after my experience with them for High Rise. Creating a pub prog band proved great fun for Ben Salisbury and I as it needed to represent the characters in the film that were mostly loose cannons and lunatics and we needed to try and reflect them in all their idiosyncratic glory."
