A QUIET Vinyl PLACE

Beltrami’s A QUIET PLACE Soundtrack comes to Vinyl
…in celebration of the film’s home video release, and in conjunction with our friends at Milan Records, we are super excited to present the soundtrack to A QUIET PLACE. The second directorial feature for John Krasinski, A QUIET PLACE is an incredibly tense monster movie as original as it is scary. It’s not only one of the most exciting horror films in years, but also one of the biggest films of 2018, and features a truly haunting soundtrack by Marco Beltrami. The package includes 180 Gram Black & Red color-in-color vinyl and absolutely stunning artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin.
The score by Marco Beltrami is an absolute tour-de-force – it’s basically another character in the film. It can be forceful and bludgeoning one minute, and quiet and reflective the next. His players twist their instruments to generate tones and textures not usually associated with them; the layers of sound and percussion on display are incredible. The opening track ‘It Hears You’ is reminiscent of a classic PLANET OF THE APES cue; it’s disquieting and slightly wonky but has an incredible hook that immediately lets you know you are in horror territory. Contrastingly, ‘A Quiet Family’ is a beautiful piano track that reminds you of the life the family lived before a world of monsters took over. The pianos are detuned and electronics are layered over traditional instruments to create something truly unsettling.
