Portishead/Invada man Geoff Barrow and composer Ben Salisbury are creating an original score to fit ‘Ex-Machina’, a not-yet-released ‘sci-fi thriller’ written and directed by Alex Garland.

Salisbury did the soundtrack to Beyonce doc ‘Life Is But A Dream’ and has worked on various BBC wildlife shows. He also collaborated with Barrow back in 2012 on what was meant to be the score to ‘Dredd’, a movie adapted by Garland. Whilst the score was eventually not used on the film, the pair released it as a box set titled ‘Drokk: Music Inspired By Mega-City One’.

Set to premiere at film festivals later this year, ‘Ex-Machina’ stars Oscar ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson.
