OGRE and Dallas Campbell
Beyond the Infinite
1968’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is often regarded as one of the most influential films ever to be made. While taking inspiration from Clarke’s novel of the same name, Kubrick created a living and breathing version of the already stellar story detailing Man’s birth, history, and its sprint toward the infinite. Aside from from the revolutionary film itself, the film’s soundtrack has been considered iconic for nearly five decades; It’s physical release featuring a symphonic score performed by world-famous orchestras from across the globe that spanned multiple volumes.
In 2016, OGRE and Dallas Campbell follow in the footsteps of these legends by reverently creating an alternate score to the film.
Beyond the Infinite is a carefully composed alternate soundtrack created on analog synthesizers alongside more experimental compositional techniques that spans 2001’s entire 134 minute run time. With tools such as the Korg MS-20, Korg Mono/Poly, Roland SH-101, and RS-505 at their hands, Robin and Dallas spent two months crafting a beautiful response to the simple question many fans of the film have asked:
What would 2001 be like with a synth-based soundscape?
“Beyond The Infinite sounds like it could’ve been composed by one person. This level of cohesion is something we’re both really proud of, and is hopefully symptomatic of a successful collaboration, though people familiar with us should still be able to pick out those Robin and Dallas moments.”
