ComingSoon is pleased to offer an exclusive peek at The Stranger soundtrack featuring music by composer, cellist, and electronic musician Oliver Coates (Aftersun). The film is now streaming on Netflix and the soundtrack will be available on October 21. The score utilizes electronics and strings to provide a forbidding, rhythmic backdrop to the unsettling film that illustrates the secretive friendship between two strangers.

“The director Thomas M Wright sent me a recording of an Australian underpass at night, the sound of vehicles passing overheard,” says Coates. “There was a physicality, breath, and silence in the sound. I started sending him quick sketches based on breathy dark string loops against his field recording and we worked for the next 8 months on The Stranger, before the shoot, and throughout the edit. We wanted the musical language to keep pressure on the rhythm of the film, and to stay terse in the motifs. It is dark but fast-moving like an escaping dream. There is a build-up of unbearable tension, in a film without any violence at all – then the last 15 minutes are a wide outpouring of the emotions stored in the body, a flood of tonal music, reversed basslines on strings and cascading harmonics.”

Check out “Rylett Convergence” from The Stranger soundtrack below:

“A friendship forms between two strangers. For Henry Teague (Sean Harris), worn down by a lifetime of physical labor, this is a dream come true,” says the synopsis of the film. “His new friend Mark (Joel Edgerton) becomes his savior and ally. However, neither is who they appear to be, each carry secrets that threaten to ruin them – and in the background, one of the nation’s largest police operations is closing in.”
