As part of Music Month, Filmmaker magazine editor Scott Macaulay picks out the most seminal movie soundtracks of all time.
Slide 4: Blade Runner (1994)
Greek synthesizer pioneer Vangelis composed this score to Ridley Scott’s 1982 film noir–tinged adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Containing moments of proto-techno — Paul Oakenfold would score a remix club hit of the main theme years later — and a lush electronic romanticism, Vangelis’s Blade Runner score captures both the romance and the foreboding of Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece. The soundtrack album is also that rare disc that includes dialogue samples from the movie to great effect.
