Interstellar (2014) "Mountains"
Interstellar has one of the most unique scores I can think of. It has many amazing moments, such as the second half of “Where We’re Going” that builds and builds, and the 2:37 mark of “No Time for Caution.” But my single most favorite moment is the clip I’m sharing here, from “Mountains.” Particularly around the 2:07 mark (and 2:23 mark), you can start to hear/feel this descending bass-something-or-another in the back. It’s glorious. If you ever needed to help describe “depth” to someone in the audio realm, this is it.
I also read on some meme somewhere that the ticking clock you can hear at the beginning of “Mountains” - each tick mathematically represents 1 day of passing (on Earth) while Mathew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are briefly on the water planet. Pretty cool!
Have a favorite Hans Zimmer score?
