British composer Steven Price has worked through many roles in music since graduating with a First Class music degree from Cambridge. He had been a successful programmer, arranger and musician before Howard Shore employed him as a music editor on the scores for The Lord Of The Rings trilogy which were followed by Batman Begins in the same role. Striking out into the field of film composing he found success with the sci-fi comedy Attack The Block followed by The World’s End this year.
The score for Gravity is integral to the film as Price explains, “From my earliest meetings with Alfonso (Cuarón, director) it was clear the score in Gravity would play a crucial and expanded role. With no sound in space, the music was integral to underscore the emotional journey”.
“Steven Price doesn’t appear opposite Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Gravity’, but he may as well be the film’s third co-star. Price is the film’s composer and his score is so vital and unique that it’s hard to imagine ‘Gravity’ working as well as it does without the 36-year-old’s contributions”. – The Huffington Post
