Christopher Gordon’s evocative score to the futuristic vampire action movie

“Chris has captured the cold reality of the vampire world, juxtaposed with the warmth of humanity.”
- Peter & Michael Spierig (Writers/Directors)

In 2019 vampires rule and humans fight for survival in a World full of contrast, of hope and despair, light and darkness. This vivid world is brought to life by Christopher Gordon’s mnemonic score. Gordon’s dark soundtrack features a full symphonic orchestra with horn section, strings, woodwinds, percussion and choir.

Recognised as one of Australia’s leading film composers, Christopher Gordon is just as comfortable writing for the concert hall as the screen. He has recently won the prestigious Australian Film Institute Award for the score to Mao’s Last Dancer, and his screen credits include TV mini-series Moby Dick, On The Beach, Salem’s Lot and Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World.

The soundtrack also includes Placebo’s haunting take on Kate Bush’s classic Running Up That Hill.

The stellar cast features Ethan Hawke, Willem Defoe, Isabel Lucas and Sam Neill.

Reviews

“Daybreakers then is something of a punch in the gut from the left field.
…a rather brilliant symphonic, choral sideswipe of a very high calibre indeed,from a composer I want to hear more from, and soon.”
- Music From The Movies

“Why should you buy it?: …you know you’re in for something special as Gordon’s weighty orchestral sound gives DAYBREAKERS a beautiful, brooding quality - a classy tone that could easily accompany a reboot of Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde”…
- Film Music Mag

“Christopher Gordon's epic-sounding score”
- Screen Sounds

“Christopher Gordon delivering some great musical moments”
- Soundtrack Geek

“this is a great soundtrack.”
- Sci-Fi Online

“…just listening to the music was enough to push me to the edge of my seat and get my heartbeat racing. I was even tempted to press skip when listening to “Drought” because I could honestly feel the anguish of those suffering from starvation”
- Gordon and the Whale
