Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner remains a high-water mark in film score history. Expressive, darkly dramatic, full of undertones of film noir and an imagined future, his soundtrack is just as iconic as the film itself. 

In this episode, Jaime, Patrick, and new Contributing Host Dr. Robin Bunce go track by track through the 1994 Warner release. Although it deviates significantly from the score as it appears in the film, it’s the version many of us know best—and the one you’ll find available most readily on streaming platforms. (Never fear: we will return to analyze other editions in future episodes!)

So pull up the 1994 version, give it a listen, and join us as we dive very, very deeply into this richly textured masterwork.

When we heard there was going to be a second Blade Runner film, most of us immediately wanted to know two things: who was going to direct it, and who was going to write the soundtrack.

Vangelis’ score for the 1982 film is a watershed moment in film score history, and for good reason. The music for Blade Runner 2049 would have to be special indeed to earn its place alongside its forerunner.

Lucky for us, Ben Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer delivered more than most of us could’ve dreamed for 2049. And in this episode, Jaime and Patrick dive deeply into that music, examining how it was made—and why, perhaps, it was made that way.

100 // Is It the Same Now, As Then? Shoulder of Orion’s 100th Episode

May 18, 2021

When Shoulder of Orion launched four years ago, we didn’t know what it would become. We knew we had a great film to talk about. We knew we had another film coming, and we knew we hoped it would live up to our impossible expectations. 

But more than anything, we knew we were desperate to talk about this incredible universe. And we knew that through talking about it, we would find friends around the world who felt the same way. 

After one hundred episodes, we know those truths to be more evident than ever: these films speak to people, and through speaking about them we are connected. 

Join Jaime, Patrick, and Dan on this tour back through our first one hundred episodes. And know you were a part of every one of them, whether we mentioned you on air or not.
