Those who've seen acclaimed sci-fi flick Arrival should be familiar with Max Richter's "On The Nature of Daylight"; two interpretations of the piece are used to open and close the movie (a move which subsequently made the soundtrack score ineligible for the Oscars). This EP gathers both variations of the neo-classical piece on one slab of wax. The A-side version, used at the beginning of the film, sees Richter's swooping themes and intricate, intertwined melodies played by a string quintet. On the flip, you'll find Richter's full orchestra recording, a slightly more grandiose - but no less poignant - interpretation that's utterly cinematic in feel.
