Gregory Tripi’s Soundtrack to Horror Thriller MA Set for Vinyl
Death Waltz Recording Co., in conjunction with Back Lot Music, announced the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to MA, featuring the synth score by award-winning composer Gregory Tripi (REMEMORY, MANHUNT UNABOMBER).
Tate Taylor’s psychological horror film MA finds Octavia Spencer offering suspicious generosity with some warning signs—a classic tale of what happens when something seems too good to be true. Composer Tripi’s mostly electronic score is laced with the type of ambient beauty, ominous energy, and berserk passages that a story this unhinged requires. He uses analog synths, along with elements such as a live cello, pitched wine glasses and a ukulele, made from a bento box, to craft a score that, like Spencer’s Ma character, lulls you in with a false sense of security before stopping you cold with a deeply crushing sense of terror that hits you at your core.
Featuring all new artwork by Sara Deck and pressed on 180 Gram Colored vinyl. Available from Mondo, limited to 500 numbered copies. Mondo expects to ship in September 2019.
The soundtrack is also available digitally on streaming platforms and download via Backlot Records, and on CD from Intrada Records.
