Info for Spaceman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Max Richter had a particular puzzle to solve as he was creating the film’s evocative score. How do you capture the emotional disparities of an intimate love story cast in the vast expanse of space?

“The visual language of the film really informs your musical decisions,” says the celebrated post-minimalist composer, whose film credits include Ad Astra and Mary Queen of Scots, among many others. “The visual texture, the way the light is, and the haptics of the images really tell me a lot about how the music should feel.”

To that end, Richter experimented with striking a balance between retro electronic textures and luminous orchestral flourishes.

“The score’s palette is kind of 1970s-period electronics that have been treated with ’70s effects – recorded on tape as they would have been recorded back then,” he says. “And then we have acoustic instrumentation that is mostly strings, some piano, and the strings we’ve done in two layers: a very closely mic-ed, intimate sound and also big-picture strings.”

That elusive dynamic between moments loud and soft, big and small, expanded director Johan Renck’s original vision for the score.

“I wanted the music to have this slightly peculiar, not-made-by-human-hands, ’70s sci-fi kind of vibe,” Renck says. “But on the other hand, Max was key to finding some of the melodic beauty in the score, which I came to love. If you would've asked me in the beginning of the scoring journey if I would've wanted to have that, I would've said, ‘No, we're going to create weird music and sounds that are in the realm between sound design and score.’

“I'm so thankful that Max added that extra layer,” he says. “He did bring all the mysterious, strange stuff, but then he also brought these big, beautiful melodic transpositions that give me goosebumps every time I hear them.”

"Spaceman" is a 2024 American science fiction drama film directed by Johan Renck and written by Colby Day. It is based on the 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfař. Starring Adam Sandler, Carey Mulligan, Kunal Nayyar, Isabella Rossellini and Paul Dano, it follows an astronaut sent on a mission to the edge of the solar system who encounters a creature that helps him put his earthly problems back together.

Max's music has formed the basis of numerous dance works, including pieces by Lucinda Childs, NDT, Ballet du Rhin, American Ballet Theatre, Dresden Semper Oper, The Dutch National Ballet, Norwegian National Ballet, among many others, while film makers using work by Max include Martin Scorsese (Shutter Island).

Recent commissions include the opera SUM, based on David Eagleman’s acclaimed book, premiered at The Royal Opera House, London and Mercy, commissioned by Hilary Hahn.
