In fact, I remember way back when we were making the film, people in the editing suite would say they heard people doing this weird little hum, and it was always that same refrain, under their breath. I’ve just been calling it “that weird little sound from the Annihilation trailer.”. You are hearing synths, and as I said, it’s the only time in the score that synths and electronics make an overt appearance. And it’s nice to hear even from the people who don’t like it, who are disturbed by it, because that’s its purpose.

But that’s unrealistic, because you’ve got to sell a film. The demon opera theme. That was the result. You can cancel anytime. We did spend a long time mixing it in a studio in London, that particular part of the film, especially. We worked on the film for a very long time and there were probably about five different versions of our score, but at one stage, those four notes of that theme existed throughout the score in an orchestral version.

WAH wa WAH wa-ah. You’ve run out of free articles. It comes from the most impactful bit of the score, the part where you’re supposed to notice what’s going on musically and be affected by it. The rest of it is sort of trailer stuff, and then for some reason, they’ve literally just picked that little phrase out, one of the stems from our score, and it seems to have affected people. The music motifs of Annihilation are meant to capture the attention of viewers using sounds and hooks that are awesomely unconventional, while offering complete usability and flexibility for producers, editors and music supervisors. It’d be interesting if trailers used score more often—although often score is still being written when trailers come out. What exactly am I hearing in this melody, in terms of instruments? I don’t know if you’ve seen, but there’s a YouTube channel where two guys and a girl respond to trailers. But people who have just seen the trailer online don’t seem to understand what the big deal is. Well, I’ve never interviewed anyone about four notes before either. Annihilation was an underdog movie last year, with fewer trailers/ads than other blockbuster movies, and yet it packed more of a visual and story-telling punch than most sci-fi movies in the last 10 years. People do seem to be divided over whether they like it or find it kind of disturbing, but they definitely notice it. How did this theme come to exist in the first place? [Director Alex Garland] said, look, this segment is music from start to finish, there’s not a single word spoken, and it goes from strange orchestral pulses into this sort of very involved and heavy electronic workout into a choral thing.

It’s hilarious. They do so purposefully in this part of the film so that it stands apart. They’re sort of mangled in the version you hear, but it’s just four notes. Marissa Martinelli is a Slate associate editor. Our roster features some of the most talented and diverse composers in the business, credited with hundreds of blockbuster theatrical marketing campaigns. It’s one of the few examples where the use of that music in the trailer could actually benefit your appreciation of the sound when it lands in the film. You’re not the only one, actually. It started life as “the Shimmer theme,” but then we decided that The Shimmer would be led by sound design instead, and then the sound got placed on a different part of the movie—if I said too much it would be a spoiler, but it’s where it all comes together and Natalie Portman’s character, Lena, finally comes face to face with what we’ve been searching for.

Only that I’ve never been interviewed about four notes before. What’s that like for you as a composer? As I say, it’s been so processed.
