Blending science, romance and spirituality all into a movie we called "an intelligent and ambitious adult drama," you might think the soundtrack to "I Origins" would be perhaps sombre or restrained. You would be mistaken. Will Bates and Phil Mossman, who have previously collaborated on "Lola Versus," "Generation Um...," "The Normals" and "Another Earth," take composing duties here and deliver something a bit unexpected for "I Origins."

I Origins

Blending science, romance and spirituality all into a movie we called "an intelligent and ambitious adult drama," you might think the soundtrack to "I Origins" would be perhaps somber or restrained. You would be mistaken. Will Bates and Phil Mossman, who have previously collaborated on "Lola Versus," "Generation Um...," "The Normals" and "Another Earth," take composing duties here and deliver something a bit unexpected for "I Origins." So turn up your speakers and read on...

"No Time Like The Present" is a surprisingly propulsive and compelling track, that moves steadily in its brisk running time, never losing momentum, but also creating an undercurrent of undeniable atmosphere. And that seems to strike the right tone for "I Origins" which follows a molecular biologist, who makes a discovery that could change everything we know about society and humanity. It's another nice piece of work from a couple of composers who continue to fill out their filmographies with admirable entries, and it's only a matter of time before big Hollywood studios come breaking down their door.

Starring Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Steven Yeun and Archie Panjabi, "I Origins" opens on July 18th, with the soundtrack arriving on July 15th. Listen below.
