Listen: El-P Shares Rejected Blade Runner 2049 Score

Largely created on the same type of synth used on the original Blade Runner score...

Run The Jewels rapper El-P has shared the rejected demo he created for the Blade Runner 2049 score.

The hip-hop star revealed last year that he was approached to work on the score, but the project didn't quite work out.

Said to be working on the score for a high profile film this year, El-P used the Easter break to share his work for the Blade Runner project.

It's certainly interesting, right down to the hardware: El-P limited himself to the same type of synth used on the score for the original Blade Runner film. 

Here's a message…

as i get closer and closer to being able to announce the film score i'm doing this year, i thought it might be nice to finally throw out this little piece. its what i put together for the blade runner 2 trailer when they called on me. i was honored to even be thought of. almost every sound apart from percussion was created on the same type of synth vangelis used for the original blade runner score. its unmixed as i only had about 2 days to whip it together and send over. enjoy.

And here's the music:
