Lakeshore Releases Ben Lovett’s I TRAPPED THE DEVIL Soundtrack

_I Trapped the Devil ost“Ben Lovett’s score is more evidence that the man who sold the horror in THE WIND and THE RITUAL understands the importance of music in horror. Those two films utilized music and sound perfectly to create tension and put that feeling of dread in your stomach. With I TRAPPED THE DEVIL operating in minimalism, the music is even more important in establishing tension and Lovett’s score melds with the sound effects to create an underlying dread that percolates through the entire film. It pulses, mixing ambient noises and thudding bass.” – Gayly Dreadful

It was a great challenge to turn that idea into a real thing, a device that I could use throughout the score. I adapted and rewrote part of the classical lyrics from the requiem mass and had it performed by a choir.” Another prominent theme in the film is the water, appearing in almost every shot. Oscar says: “To some extent I wanted the music to feel like water. The string arrangements in particular have a sort of a wave-like motion to them, swelling back and forth as the tide.”

We’re really looking at a Hitchcockian psychological tapestry, dialog scenes where what’s being discussed on the surface is 100% cover for what’s being insinuated below the surface, and the score gets to dance between those two levels.”

Patrick Gleeson’s STAR WARS – classic 1977 electronic album reissued by BSX

Patrick_Gleeson_Star_Wars-Digital_cover_1024x1024New digital release from BuySoundtrax: Patrick Gleeson’s STAR WARS, an electronic realization of themes from John Williams’ STAR WARS as performed by electronic music pioneer Patrick Gleeson on an eMU synthesizer. Originally recorded in 1977, Gleeson used what were, at the time, state of the art synthesizer systems to electronically recreate John William’s iconic score. Very cool!
The music is presented in both 24 bit WAV and MP3 files. The album includes a PDF booklet with the original LP notes by Gleeson. “We all felt that if we were going to do the music at all we should do it in a completely different way,” wrote Gleeson. “Our intention never was just to put out a ‘cover album’ of the original music, but to provide a completely different kind of musical experience.”
Patrick Gleeson is also known for his work in jazz music with Herbie Hancock (he brought synthesizers to Hancock’s ensemble in 1972) and as a film composer (THE PLAGUE DOGS, etc.)

Fabio Frizzi Scores PUPPET MASTER reimagining, soundtrack forthcoming

_the-puppet-master-the-littlest-reich_2400…Says Frizzi: “I started working early in film music. It was the beginning of the 70s, Italian cinema was very prosperous, and there were productions of all kinds. I remember that the common element among them was enthusiasm, a deep love for what is called the seventh art, and is for many producers, directors, screenwriters, and workers first of all, a passion. It’s been a long time, but Cinestate involved me in this new adventure, which has had many points in common with my early experience in film music….

Massive Alan Silvestri score gets lavish 2-CD treatment from Intrada

Mummy Returns - IntradaFollowing in the path forged by Jerry Goldsmith for the 1999 movie, Alan Silvestri in 2001’s THE MUMMY RETURNS recorded some 112 minutes of massive orchestra/choral score, plus an additional 35 minutes of alternates to accommodate changes during film editing, making it one of his largest projects ever. Decca released a soundtrack CD of highlights but due to timing of 2001 album release in stores, they necessarily had to drop large portions of the score that had not yet been mixed, including every single cue scored for the climactic action sequences, totaling some 25 minutes alone! All of this is premiered here in Intrada’s 2-CD set for the first time, courtesy of Universal Pictures and Universal Music Group.

Beltrami’s A QUIET PLACE Soundtrack comes to Vinyl from Mondo

_Mondo QuietPlace vinyl ost…The score by Marco Beltrami is an absolute tour-de-force – it’s basically another character in the film. It can be forceful and bludgeoning one minute, and quiet and reflective the next. His players twist their instruments to generate tones and textures not usually associated with them; the layers of sound and percussion on display are incredible. The opening track ‘It Hears You’ is reminiscent of a classic PLANET OF THE APES cue; it’s disquieting and slightly wonky but has an incredible hook that immediately lets you know you are in horror territory. Contrastingly, ‘A Quiet Family’ is a beautiful piano track that reminds you of the life the family lived before a world of monsters took over. The pianos are detuned and electronics are layered over traditional instruments to create something truly unsettling…

LEGION Season 2 soundtrack coming up on Friday

legion-season-2_2400.jpgLakeshore Records will release the LEGION SEASON TWO – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on May 25th, featuring original music by Emmy® Award winning composer Jeff Russo (FARGO, THE NIGHT OF). Legion is the story of “David Haller” (Dan Stevens), a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.  Russo goes deeper and pushes more boundaries with the second season score.  Legion currently airs Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT on FX. 

Says Russo: “There wasn’t a directive this season except to write some new themes for our new characters and locations.  Vermillion! Farouk! Future Syd! It’s a roller coaster ride or maybe a fast carousel.  Always keeping the viewer and listener off balance and engaged in the emotional through line of the narrative is the most important part. I’m always asking myself how can I stay in the heart of the story and color outside the lines.”

Here the  production turned to the KPM catalogue, one of the few really established library catalogues around at the time with a modern edge; it was full of fabulous, modern dramatic music tracks. Not only would this KPM music be efficient, affordable and very easy to use, it would also mean syndication worldwide would not be held up by any future musical issues. Krantz produced two amazing spider series and both were smothered with KPM music. In fact barely a spider second goes by without music playing in either the background or foreground.

“It was an exciting, entertaining script, with an off-beat tone,” said Scherrer. “I loved that the central character, Matilda, is a concert cellist. The cello immediately unlocked the door into the score and justified an element of virtuoso solo cello. The cello often plays in unusually spooky registers, as if it was part of a mysterious Welsh landscape.”

Julien Mineau Creates A Dark, Video-Gamesque And “Synthelicious” Score For GAME OF DEATH

Game of Death OSTDare To Care Records has released a soundtrack album for the horror thriller GAME OF DEATH. The album features the film’s original music composed by Julien Mineau (THE TROTSKY). Mineau’s music for GAME OF DEATH won best score at the 2017 Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.

The singer, guitarist and composer behind Malajube and Fontarabie has once again expanded his range by composing the soundtrack for GAME OF DEATH, a gory horror flick produced by Laurence “Baz” Morais and Sébastien Landry (LA CHIENNE). An engaging mosaic of atmospheric synth-pop pieces, the soundtrack album is available now for digital download and online streaming under Dare To Care Records.

Kill or be killed is the golden rule of the GAME OF DEATH. Sucks for seven millennials who ignored that rule. Now each one’s head will explode unless they kill someone. Will they turn on each other to survive, or will this sunny day be the last for the innocent people of their middle-of-nowhere town? 

The soundtrack is now available to download on Amazon, where you can also listen to audio samples, and other digital music outlets.

More THRILLER from Tadlow

Teaser: Coming from Tadlow in 2018 – a second helping of newly-recorded music from the original TV series, THRILLER (1961-62).

Tadlow TZ V2 2018Jerry Goldsmith had taken over composing for THRILLER when first-season scorer Pete Rugolo was let go during a house-clearing to retool the series as a scarier anthology in its second season. Goldsmith had previously contributed to CBS’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE (1959-64), scoring 16 of its original half-hour episodes. Goldsmith relished the opportunity to score THRILLER’s hour-long format. Tadlow’s 2017 CD release offered up a premiere release of Goldsmith’s music from THRILLER’s second-season scores (Rugolo had made an LP in 1961 of some of his music from the show’s first season; that LP was reissued on CD in Spain in 2002; but none of Goldsmith’s THRILLER music had been issued in any format).

With their first volume, producers James Fitzpatrick and Leigh Phillips (the latter also reconstructed the scores) had rearranged the powerful resources of the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra into an unusual chamber set-up that befitted the scope of Goldsmith’s music, which was originally recorded with minimal ensembles, but nonetheless made the most of the composer’s inventive orchestrations.

Tadlow’s world premiere recording would revisit more than an hour’s worth of music from six of THRILLER’s most provocatively scored second-season episodes, each one score presented via a trio of short suites. More details, including specific episode content of Volume 2, have not been announced yet, but it will surely be something to look forward to. Watch for the official word here – or at
