"Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score is so integral to the images that it may as well be their heartbeat ... it’s spooky and sonorous, a spectral hum."
- TIME

"Dubbed heptapods, the massive creatures look like blobby crosses between an octopus and a spider and Jóhann Jóhannsson’s unsettling music, an ominous drone punctuated by horn blasts that sound like otherworldly whale calls, underscores their strange majesty."
- The Hollywood Reporter

This soundtrack for the science fiction film Arrival is composer Jóhann Jóhannsson's third cinematic collaboration with French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, including the 2015 crime thriller Sicario which garnered Jóhannsson an Academy Award nomination for best original score. Arrival stars Amy Adams as a linguist who attempts to communicate with an alien intelligence controlling a fleet of spacecraft that has suddenly and ominously appeared all around the world. Jóhannsson worked with several singers and vocal ensembles and combined both classical and avant-garde elements in his score, which also integrates some “found sounds” from legendary vocalist Joan La Barbara.

"Arrival is a very unique science fiction film and I decided early on that the human voice would feature prominently in the score. It seemed a natural choice, given that the story is very much about language and communication ... I basically had carte blanche to experiment musically and sonically in creating this unique sound world."
- Jóhann Jóhannsson

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
