Paul Woolford contributed sound design to the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer

The film hits cinemas this October...

Paul Woolford has revealed via Twitter that he had a hand in the music for Blade Runner 2049, specifically for the film's new trailer, which dropped this week.

Whether his contribution extends the film's actual score we're not entirely sure, as it's common knowledge that the film's soundtrack has been created by Jóhann Jóhannsson, who has worked with the film's director, Denis Villeneuve, on several of his previous films including the excellent Arrival, Sicario and Prisoner.

The film sees Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearth a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who's been missing for 30 years.

The original film changed the sci-fi landscape when it was originally released back in 1982 tackling issues around AI, genetic engineering and corporate power and featured a stunning soundtrack from legendary electronic producer Vangelis.

Check out the new film's trailer, which features Paul Woolford's contribution, below.

In other news, Woolford has also revealed that he's nearly finished with his Special Request album, which hopefully will be released soon, too.
