Echoes Playlist
Cliff Martinez is one of the more idiosyncratic of Hollywood film composers. The original drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, he's since carved out a niche career with his atmospheric soundtracks, mostly for director Steven Soderbergh including Sex, Lies and Videotape and Solaris. In addition to the usual film composers tools of orchestra and synthesizers, Martinez has custom instruments including American gamelan and the other-worldly sound sculptures of the French Baschet brothers. He merges these into haunting scores that brim with atmosphere and mystery. In his Los Angeles home, Martinez plays his instruments and talks about the interior spacescapes of Solaris and his latest film, Wicker Park.
