Sony Music is proud to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack for RoboCop on February 4, featuring the original score composed by Pedro Bromfman. Directed by Jose Padilha and starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, the film will be released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Columbia Pictures on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

Bromfman’s idea for the score of RoboCop was, in his own words, to “blend acoustic and electronic instruments. Like RoboCop himself, part man, part machine, the music needed to be a hybrid.” This was achieved by incorporating synthesizers and electronic pulses into the sound of an 80-piece orchestra with live percussion and by processing acoustic instruments, sometimes the entire orchestra, and altering their sounds beyond recognition. He used varied percussion instruments throughout the score: from the Brazilian cuíca and berimbau to water phones, an electric driller and the rare Swiss instrument “hang,” with its beautiful metallic tone. The blend of these unexpected sounds with traditional orchestral percussion created distinctive results. Bromfman also made the connection to the original, legendary RoboCop: “Although I’ve worked hard at creating an original, contemporary and cutting edge score, we wanted to pay homage to the original theme composed by Basil Poledouris … re-invented and re-orchestrated but full of presence and personality as it originally was.”
