Listen to the song StarWaves from M83's score to Tom Cruise's Oblivion

Mar. 6, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Joseph Kosinski hit a home run when he selected Daft Punk to score TRON: LEGACY. The electronic duo has always had a sound that fit with the world of Tron and it was by far one of my favorite scores of the year. Now, he looks to do it again with M83 and OBLIVION. I have been a big fan of M83 for years now and getting the chance for those who have never heard Anthony Gonzalez's tunes will find a new favorite musician.

The track is titled "StarWaves" and is everything a big science fiction score should be: bold, pulsating, and memorable. I am looking forward to hearing the entire soundtrack when it is released on April 9th.

Plot:

On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one mans confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jacks mission is nearly complete. Living and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

OBLIVION is looking to be a really good time at the movies, but I wonder if the new trailers are giving too much away about the plot. The first trailer was perfectly designed to make you wonder what the hell was going on, but the most recent trailer makes it seem like it is going to have a cheap twist halfway through the middle. I hope I am completely wrong and that Kosinski is delivering one hell of a movie for us.

OBLIVION stars Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and opens everywhere on April 12, 2013.

Sounds great and I trust that the whole soundtrack will be on par with this track. I guess Kosinski has a talent for picking musicians. It was a crime that TRON Legacy didn't earn more Awards for its score.

Great

Great song, a little like ENYA, but I dig it and it gives a feeling of what the movie will be like.

OMG...

this is going to be an amazing solid movie and a fantastic score. I always said having good music in movies makes the movie experience even better.

couldnt agree more avatard, I think Joseph Kosinski is the only director in Hollywood using good electronic synths at the moment. And for me personally they add so much more depth and ambience to a movie. I think Joseph Kosinski is my number 1 director at the moment. Actually I quiet like what bear mcreary has done for the walking dead score. I also like the score for suits which i cant seem to find anywhere

Wow.

Holy snap, I never thought that a cut from an original soundtrack could jack me up any more for a movie.
That is totally, amazingly 80's ish synth that returns me to epic scores by TANGERINE DREAM or old school HANS ZIMMER/ JAN HAMMER scores. So great!

I hope we get another trailer with music from the soundtrack. They seem to mesh so fine.

I've always wanted M83 to score a big sci-fi film, it had always been a dream of mine. I'm glad someone finally tapped him.
