He could also have said, with equal confidence, that it was unrecordable. Adapting Cloud Atlas to the screen presented directors Tom Tykwer and Andy and Lana Wachowski with challenges ranging from the practical how to depict 19th-century Polynesia as convincingly as 22nd-century Korea; how to make Halle Berry look white to the metaphysical how to convey the everything-is-connected grandeur of it all. The task fell to the composing triumvirate of Reinhold Heil, Johnny Klimek, and Tykwer himself, an accomplished pianist who has co-written the scores of most of his films.

Reception[ edit ] The Cloud Atlas soundtrack received critical acclaim. Film Music Magazine critic Daniel Schweiger described the soundtrack as "a singular piece of multi-themed astonishment Yet instead of defining one sound for every era, Klimek, Heil and Tykwer seamlessly merge their motifs across the ages to give Cloud Atlas its rhythms, blending orchestra, pulsating electronics, choruses and a soaring salute to John Adams in an astonishing, captivating score that eventually becomes all things for all personages The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival , where it received a minute standing ovation.
