Christopher Nolan's 2014 sci-fi 'Interstellar' is nothing short of a masterpiece, and we really love the score by Hans Zimmer which was nominated for Best Original Score at the 87th Academy Awards. Interestingly, Zimmer came up with the early stages of the score with a one page summary of the film which told a simple story of a father leaving his child for work. As things progressed, Zimmer and Nolan decided that a 1926 four-manual Harrison & Harrison organ would be the primary instrument heard throughout the film.
There is something so precise, tonal, and fluid in Zimmer's work with Nolan. It's common knowledge that Nolan is very hands on when it comes to every element of the film from VFX, sound design, and the way sound and image work together as you see it on-screen, especially in 70mm. This relationship, and the purity of it, is Nolan's genius. This scene, albeit short, demonstrates one of our favorite moments in the film with the backdrop of Gargantua. Enjoy in 4K UHD.
