Ep. 177 - Room (feat. Jon Hopkins)
Score Cue Snapshots! • Drama, Thriller, 16-Oct-2015
There is no question that Lenny Abrahamson's 2015 film gained a great deal of attention that year. First, there was Jacob Tremblay's entrance into the business, in addition to Brie Larson's wins at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, and BAFTAs. On top of that, the music by Stephen Rennicks is actually quite excellent throughout the film, but there is one interesting sequence that wasn't scored by him. In fact, it's a cue from another film called 'Monsters' (dir. Gareth Edwards) which features a score by electronic artist Jon Hopkins. This cue is featured in the snapshot you see here, which is an interesting inclusion from an entirely different composer, album, and movie.
Needless to say, it's an incredible scene and with the Hopkin's cue 'Campfire', we feel the music takes it to another level entirely. Enjoy this one!
