Howard Shore’s ‘Crimes Of The Future’ Soundtrack Out Now |
The official soundtrack to the dystopian sci-fi horror film Future Crimesby three-time Oscar-winning composer and bandleader Howard Shore, was digitally published. Howard Shore’s credits span more than 90 films, including for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Future Crimes was written and directed by award-winning filmmaker David Cronenberg and is Howard Shore’s 16th film collaboration with him since 1979. Free time noted, “Howard Shore’s excellent score underpins the whole thing with classic grandeur.”
Future Crimes, set in the not so distant future, depicts humans learning to adapt to their synthetic environment and as they alter their biological makeup, some naturally, others surgically, the body itself becomes art . Humans have lost the ability to feel physical pain, can operate on their own bodies for pleasure, and “surgery is the new sex.”
While a condition called Accelerated Evolution Syndrome causes abnormal organs to grow in the body of famed performance artist Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux) surgically removes them in front of a live audience. Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator for the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, and a mysterious group wants to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
David Cronenberg wrote the screenplay for Future Crimes over 20 years ago, but put it aside until he decided it was the right time to make the movie. He explained: “Various things have reached the top of public consciousness around the world – like the fact, for example, that microplastics are currently in every human being on earth, because of what happened to the oceans. It made me realize that the film is more relevant than ever.
