Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow Receive Praise for ‘Annihilation’

Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow have received praise for their score for Alex Garland’s sci-fi film ‘Annihilation.’ Described by critics as “pulsing” and “otherworldly,” Ben and Geoff’s electronic score is one of the forces that transforms ‘Annihilation’ from a genre adventure film into an impressively ambitious thriller.


Annihilation boasts one of the most audacious climaxes in recent cinema history, and its music is just as haunting.” – Andy Beta, Rolling Stone

“The rumbling, churning electronic score by Ben Salisbury and Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, who previously collaborated on the score to Ex Machina, finds a path directly to the viewer’s anxiety button and presses it incessantly.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

“The film gets pretty freaky in its last third, and Salisbury and Barrow’s score matches its intensity. A four note section of “The Alien” (which is used prominently in the trailer) has taken on a life of its own.” – Bill Pearis, Brooklyn Vegan
