Gore Score: Soundtrack Released for Composer Dominik Hauser’s Directorial Debut

_DeadSquad-cover“DEAD SQUAD: TEMPLE OF THE UNDEAD has a few nods to the ‘80s with a couple synthy throwback cues,” Hauser said, “but then I departed from that and I tried to stay in more of a percussive, orchestral vein – which to me is the timeless design for music in movies. I wanted to score the film a little more seriously and not synthy throughout.” The score is an effectively mix of digital orchestra and a small group of live musicians.

Enchanting Danish Fantasy Film Score WILDWITCH issued by MovieScore Media

wildwitch“I wanted to create a music that reflected the cold and misty nature present in the film, but also the spiritual evolution of Clara, our 12-year old main character” says Flemming Nordkrog about his contributions. “The music had to be fragile, mysterious and very organic. I wrote most of the musical themes and textures before the shooting of the film, working solely on paper and piano before I went on doing some very free-floating recordings of my ideas, with different groups of musicians. First the female voice, representing Clara, then a duo of cello and bass, a duo of alto flute and clarinet and a 30 piece string orchestra.

Jonathan Beard Scores WHAT STILL REMAINS – Digital Soundtrack Out

what-still-remains_600Lakeshore Records has the digital soundtrack to the post-apocalypse thriller WHAT STILL REMAINS. The Album features original music by composer Jonathan Beard (STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC – KNIGHTS OF THE FALLEN EMPIRE). Beard describes scoring WHAT STILL REMAINS: “In exploring the uncertain world that our characters face, the film unfolds as a complex and engaging psychological thriller, and the score needed to musically reflect that reality. 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.)

_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.”

 

Strange Disc proudly presents (for the first time on any format) the original soundtrack to POPCORN (1991) – Music by Paul Zaza

Strange Universe POPCORN OST lp PZazaThe sublime soundtrack was composed & performed by ‘PAUL ZAZA’ who was responsible for scoring many horror-classics such as PROM NIGHT (1980), MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981), and Bob Clark’s PORKY’s (1981).  POPCORN was entirely shot in Jamaica, so on some tracks you can definitely sense the ‘island flavor’ slipping into Paul’s eerie trademark sound.

Now, for the first time on any format, Strange Disc record presents a deluxe limited vinyl edition that also comes with a double-sided insert containing exclusive liner notes by the composer and noted horror film journalist Kristy Jett. Supervised and produced by the composer, this release is available as a classic black vinyl edition (250 copies) & as a color vinyl variant (300 copies Popcorn Swirl Vinyl).

Olivier Deriviere VAMPYR gamescore“I wanted to capture the struggle between the doctor and vampire that Jonathan Reid becomes,” reveals composer Olivier Derivière. “Only a virtuoso cellist like Eric-Maria Couturier, with all his experience in contemporary classical music, could give this performance such complex duality with his instrument. With the use of dual strings and so many disturbing notes, his musicianship evokes something unique that perfectly matches the journey of Jonathan Reid.”

Trunk Records release vinyl soundtrack from a popular TV cartoon about spiders!

For many enthusiasts the soundtrack to a certain spider-related TV series (we’re not allowed to mention its name for legal reasons) is really is formative music – a junior _Spider-Jazz cover Trunk Recordsforay into hip swinging crime jazz and esoteric musical grooviness…  After its first season the producing company went bankrupt, so the amazing spider series was taken on by producer Steve Krantz, who brought in the idea of using economic library music. 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.

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.”

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 www.tadlowmusic.com/.
