geoff barrow & ben salisbury / various artists Free Fire: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (CD, £10.50)label: Invada
Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury return to score Ben Wheatley’s 1970s based epic shoot-out ‘Free Fire’, executively produced by Martin Scorsese. Compiled by director Ben Wheatley himself, the soundtrack features the full score by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury, dialogue from the film and licensed tracks (The Real Kids, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Denver). ‘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. The CD is housed in a jewel case. Both the LP and CD include a digital download card which features the full soundtrack as well as additional unheard bonus material not used in the score.
