Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has released a chilling remix of Clark’s “Isolation Theme.” The original track is taken from the soundtrack of 2019 horror film Daniel isn’t Real.
“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 explained in a statement. “I guess I simplified it in a way, into waveforms that were being disrupted. I was surprised how frightening it became.”
Clark remixed Yorke’s solo track “Not the News” from his 2019 record ANIMA, which was around the same time he started work on the soundtrack for Adam Egypt Mortimer’s film. “It has a neat circularity closing this expanded edition of the score with him remixing me,” Clark said on Twitter. He added, “I was surprised how well the midi translated to his remix. He got such a good tone out of it, love it.”
