Listen to Thom Yorke’s Remix of Clark’s ‘Isolation Theme’

    Thom Yorke has shared a remix of Clark’s ‘Isolation Theme’, from the electronic producer’s soundtrack to the 2019 thriller Daniel Isn’t Real. Listen to it below.

    “I took Clark’s score of ‘Isolation Theme’ and simply made it feel like the moment we were entering; being told to stay indoors, entering a new type of silence,” Yorke said in a press release. “I guess I simplified it in a way, into waveforms that were being disrupted. I was surprised how frightening it became.”

    Clark added: “I started working on Daniel Isn’t Real around the time I was asked to remix Thom’s track ‘Not The News’, so it has a neat circularity closing the expanded edition of the score with him remixing me. I was surprised how well the midi translated to his remix. He got such a good pure electronic tone out of it. It amazes me how simple note information, if it has a nice shape, can transmit to multiple voicings. This isn’t good news for genres. It’s good news for me though.”

    The remix comes ahead of the expanded release of Clark’s score for the 2019 film, which is set to arrive on December 6 via Deutsche Grammophon.
