Marlin Skiles' score for THE HYPNOTIC EYE was mesmerizing...

Carlo Savina's Hypnos, anyone?

Movie themselves are, at their basis, a form of hypnosis.

For me, Herrmann was the master of musical hypnosis (VERTIGO is the first thing that comes to mind) and often have a 'wraparound structure', followed by Morricone.

Williams' The Fortress of Solitude was, at the time, my go-to 'hypnosis' cue.


Vertigo for sure, and quite a few cues from Fahrenheit 451 as well. I'd also include The Day The Earth Stood Still for the Theremin alone!

Interstellar - Hans Zimmer

I walked out of the theater like I just got out of a black hole.

Oooh, also THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD. The whole film has that hypnotic pull, but the score is a huge part of it.

Some of Kilar's Dracula is quite hypnotic.

Wonderland by Michael Nyman definitely has a hypnotic, mesmerising affect.

Koyaanisqatsi has always been one for me.

Also, in a completely different way, Promised Land by James Newton Howard.

Not an elbow resting on a key pad.


LMAO! You should trademark that one.

Just listened to parts of it on YouTube and Song for Jesse immediately put me in mind of one of my very favorite albums, Aguas Da Amazonia by Uakti and Philip Glass.

And in particular this track.

This is great, thanks for sharing!

There's a little bit of Saint-Saens in there as well. Oddly enough, Saint-Saens' lone, pioneering film score was THE ASSASSINATION OF THE DUKE OF GUISE. Symmetry!

Not a single score but a compilation. I love Georges Delerue The London Sessions. Man that puts me in a hypnotic mood.

The first score that comes to mind is Howard Shore's EXISTENZ. From the opening track to the end it quickly establishes a mesmerising and hypnotic feel. Even during the more animated action sequences the music doesn't really veer far away from the hypnotic feel.

Great one! I sometimes think I’m the only fan of this amazing score because it doesn’t seem to get mentioned nearly often enough. Perfect for the film and a superb, truly atmospheric listen all on its own.

I’m going with JACOB’S LADDER by Maurice Jarre, although the dream here is often nightmarish. I know his synth scores are not for everyone but I really feel this one casts a spell that starts with the moody and beautiful main theme on piano and never lets up on a literal journey to hell and back, and an appropriately transcendent resolution. I never ever get tired of this dreamy masterpiece after nearly thirty years of listening.

Goldsmith's FREUD has some nice hypnotic cues. Very cool stuff that puts me the time and place of FREUD. The lullaby theme is quite wonderful and hypnotic.

Birth
Upstream Color
Jackie
Under the Skin
The Leftovers

Not the entire The Thing album by Morricone but tracks like Despair, the theme, Wait and a couple of others I just would. Zone out to on a loop.

Trevor Jones' Merlin comes to my mind.

Hypnotic Scores - There are many good examples mentioned here.

My very first thought was "Das Mädchen auf der Treppe" (The girl on the stairs) by Tangerine Dream.

I made a kind of hovering trip without the use of prohibited substances listening at the time to the audio cassette of POWAQAATSI, a feeling of well-being invaded me throughout the listening of the music of the film, I saw the film years later without experiencing the same thing unfortunately.
