    Default Soundtrack of Drive (2011)

    I love the dreamlike quality of some of the film music of Drive, which is composed by Cliff Martinez.

    I especially like the following pieces:





    Does anyone know (film) music similar to this?

    The music reminds me of Mark Isham's music for the film Crash (2005)

    I'm a big fan of Drive. The soundtrack was indeed top notch.

    "Nightcall" from the beginning of the film is probably my favourite.

    Well if you don't know it already, check out Brian Eno - Appolo.

    A recent movie with a very nice atmospheric soundtrack is Samsara (2011), by Michael Stearns.
    But, instead of listening to the soundtrack, I simply recommend watching the movie since it is a silent movie similar to Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka. So it's just images and the music. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0770802/

    Here is a fragment

    Thank you all for your reactions. The music of Mark Isham for Crash is beautiful and comes closest to what I meant, but the soundtrack of Samsara is indeed very nice and atmospheric too.

    Any other suggestions are welcome.

    Dude Cliff Martinez' Music to solaris is outrageous. It's so special and unique. I'd love to hear where he got the influences from for that. Look up the track "Don't blow it"

    Drive to me is kinda generic Hollywood...low-key music.

    Eric, I love the soundtrack of Solaris too, especially the track you mentioned. I think it's influenced by gamelan music. See http://www.filmtracks.com/titles/solaris.html The soundtrack of Drive may be more generic Hollywood, but to me it's still far above average.

    Here are some interesting pieces by Cliff Martinez from a recent soundtrack:

    Very few films I can honestly say have a perfect movie soundtrack, this is indeed one of them.

    Here is another nice (though sad) example of Cliff Martinez' music (from his first soundtrack):
