‘Chernobyl’ composer Hildur Guðnadóttir created entire haunting score from real power plant sounds




  1. There’s one bit that’s like a droning sound, like a really slow alarm going off that just makes me feel on edge everytime I hear it. It’s fascinating.

  2. The mix of sound design and music in this series is incredibly well-done. The geiger counter sound always puts me on edge. Hildur (and others) have really allowed a new wave of sound artists into the film/tv industry.

  3. Is it just me or are Icelandic people really pulling above their weight lately for film/tv scores?

  4. If “Brutalism” had a sound, it’d be this soundtrack. Truly intimidating and awesome stuff.

  5. Thanks for infesting my sleep with unending t****r, Hildur!

    Edit: No seriously though, this soundtrack is good. I’m definitely listening to it when I do my latest round of revisions to my book tonight. It’ll go great next to the Bird Box soundtrack.

  6. The score reminded me a lot of the score to Twin Peaks: The Return. Lots of ominous wooshing. I would love to see her work with David Lynch on a future project.

  7. Her work is incredible and she was a collaborator with the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, as well as industrial/metal/electronic/unusual music acts like Pan Sonic, Throbbing Gristle, The Knife, Ben Frost, Sunn O))), etc. She was perfect for this.

  8. Amazing soundtrack. Apart from the Giger counter, the pripyat evacuation message really puts me on edge.

  9. I’ve not seen the series yet, but listening to some of the score on youtube I think anyone who liked this would love what’s on [Cryo Chamber](https://www.youtube.com/user/cryochamberlabel) on YouTube.


    Sabled Sun, Bad Sector, Atrium Carceri, etc.

  10. Haunting score, I really liked the music at the end when they were showing the fate of those involved, sounded a bit like a choir.

  11. Any person who’s last name has multiple o’s with funny drawings above them deserves our acclaim.

  12. It was so effective in creating a sense of dread and t****r. It made me think of vomiting over and over. My worst fear so…yeah. Brilliant. Disturbing, but brilliant.

  13. Her work on Sicario: Day of the Soldado was superb. She brought a sober, less romantic tone to the sequel that served it very well.

  14. Is it weird this sold me on the show more than anything else.

    I loved that about inception too, how they used the edith plath song slowed down. v clever and atmospheric.
