Elecrtonic - ambient abstract
Orchestral - stringed (briefly)

While watching this movie,
I was attracted to the "classical" stringed pieces that caught my ear. They ARE present on tracks 6,7 and 15; but they are VERY brief. The rest of this soundtrack will evoke images of the seven- fingered knuckle spiders OR the giant floating cucumber.
I wont rate this album. It IS very good for what it is; but it is NOT a music i respond to

Serenely spooky soundtrack music by esteemed composer Johann Johannsson. If you are a fan of György Ligeti's disturbing and effective work in 2001: A Space Odyssey, you will appreciate Johannsson's attempt to convey ineffable cosmic strangeness here.

I forget what the music was like [so it was probably quite superior] but Arrival was probably the best science fiction movie I have ever seen - - pure elegance of thought - - with a tremendous ending, and superlative acting by Amy Adams. [Forrest Whitaker always has a knack for picking unique and fascinating movies to appear in.]
