Orbiter 9
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Federico Jusid
Label: MovieScore Media
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 22 June 2018

MovieScore Media releases the soundtrack to Orbiter 9, the Spanish-Colombian sci-fi co-production written and directed by Hatem Khraiche. The film tells the story of Helena, a girl who has lived all her life on a spaceship, isolated from all human contacts after her parents committed suicide due to depleting oxygen levels. Her first ever contact with mankind is Alex, an engineer who has been sent to her spaceship to undertake repairs - but Helena wants to experience more of what it is to be with someone else, only to discover her whole life was not what she believed it to be...

Federico Jusid's (Misconduct) original score for Orbiter 9 (18 tracks - 45 min, 25 sec) represents a wonderfully mellow, atmospheric collection of themes.

There are a number of tracks ('News' and 'You Knew all the Time' being the most obvious) where Jusid manages to convey the isolation and claustrophobic realities of living in space.

This is a hauntingly rich atmospheric score that hold just enough interest to make it stand on its own feet outside of the movie it was composed for. It won't be to everyone's taste, but I found it to be strangely warm and comforting.
