I saw the film Annihilation on opening weekend and really liked it. It is directed by the same guy that directed Ex Machina and has the same crew doing the score. While I didn't like it quite as much as my favorite sci-fi film of the last few years, Arrival, I did like it quite a bit.

I especially loved the score. It goes seamlessly from acoustic guitar to synthetic noises to creepy choral sounds. It's great. So of course I had to make my own interpretation of the soundtrack, just like I did for Blade Runner 2049. I liked how that one turned out so much that I knew immediately after seeing Annihilation that I'd soon be making a mix.

Making these alternative soundtracks is a lot of fun and I'm sure I'll be doing more in the future. I hope you like this one.

I actually waited to see the movie first on Netflix before listening to your mix. I loved its colours, now listening . And it sure will be nice as usual.


Very beautiful set, thank you LLM!

Eerie and amazing. You might enjoy Hidden Orchestra's "Dawn Chorus" album or Christian Loffler's "Mare" album, they feature similar style tracks. Thanks for this mix!

it's a great alt soundtrack, but ouch! those high pitch/cricket like tones! (sensitive ears) keep up the great work.
