"The Revenant trades in sixteenth notes on hi-hats for minute-long fermatas, or held notes, on cellos. Throughout all 23 tracks, the score straddles the line between weariness and wonder, like someone constantly recalling the danger this stunning planet is capable of unleashing. Under conductor André de Ridder, Berlin-based orchestra s t a r g a z e plays expansively and with great care, its 25 players sporting a serious side compared to their work with artists like Deerhoof and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry.

That organic swelling matches the dramatics beneath the film. Iñárritu fought to keep CGI out of The Revenant. He fought to use natural light on set. He fought to film so deep within nature that 40% of the day was spent traveling there.  Each of the three contributors uphold this commitment to naturalism, even with Alva Noto's electronica. Sakamoto favors simplicity and clarity; as DiCaprio crosses frozen rivers and sleeps in animal carcasses, the brevity of Sakamoto's "Killing Hawk" illustrates the strength of Sakamoto's tight focus. On the minute-long "Arriving At Fort Kiowa", a single cello is joined by trotting string support, the group leaning forward in rhythm as a unified organism.

Noto brings three different dream sequences to the table—"First Dream", "Church Dream", and "Second Dream"—where electronic bass thuds in the background like a mattress falling to the floor of an empty room. It's eerie without offering obvious indicators as to why. In that, Noto's a pro. When all three men join forces again, songs like "Cat and Mouse" use handclaps and violin tremors to communicate the indefatigability of cheating death. Sometimes, the soundtrack traces the film’s woes without coloring them in, but it’s still successful in creating the sound of mental exhaustion choosing life over death, no matter how torturous and unforgiving it — and we — may be."
