New Music: Listen to the Eerie Score for Martin Scorsese’s Silence

Paramount Pictures has released our newest teaser for Martin Scorsese’s 17th-century Jesuit-missionary epic Silence: a full stream of its soundtrack, composed by Los Angeles husband-and-wife writing team Kim Allen Kluge and Kathryn Kluge. The spare, haunting score is a combination of wordless vocalizations, electroacoustic drones, and interwoven sound effects (far-off clangs, wind, waves, crickets, and the like). It’s definitely an unusual and inspired effort, which we hope Scorsese’s film—co-starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, and Liam Neeson—will be as well.

The movie opens in the United States on December 23rd, but premiered at the Vatican … for the Cool Pope … today, after Scorsese met with Pope Francis privately to discuss it.
