The samples for Howard Shore's score for David Cronenberg's new film Cosmopolis are up on Howe Records' site:
I have to say it does not sound like my cup of tea. Very different from his recent output though.
Like he did many times in the past, Shore isn't afraid of experimenting (which is a good thing). I'm not that much into electronic/ambient music, but this sounds interesting.
I'm not a fan of electronic/ambient music either. Some of this sounds interesting, but I'm not sure if I'll like this. The thing about Howard Shore that I admire so much is how versatile he is. He's extremely talented in being able to adapt his style to the needs of the film, its one of the reasons he's one of my favourite composers. Just look at The Departed, who would have thought that the tango sound would be what the film needed all along!
