Measuring up to the 35 year legacy of Vangelis' towering soundtrack to the original Blade Runner film would scare any composer. '2049 director Denis Villeneuve chose Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch to evoke and elaborate upon Vangelis' original cyberpunk strains.

Together, Zimmer and Wallfisch sought to continue the incredible musical legacy of the original 1982 Blade Runner by Vangelis, while imparting a piece of themselves upon the score. In order to do so, they implemented vintage synths such as 'the star of the score' a Yamaha CS80 from the late seventies as well as modern technological innovations, yielding a rich sonic palette wholly cognizant of this world and the vision of director Denis Villeneuve.

A perfect marriage of melody and sound design, Zimmer & Wallfisch succeeded in creating a score which echoed the plaintive synth tones and dystopian sonics of the original, while utilising every bit of contemporary sound science to soundtrack the action with wall shaking bass and frequencies you feel rather than hear. No replicant, but a worthy successor.
