PHILIP GLASS – CANDYMAN VINYL OST
October 12, 2018
CANDYMAN: Original 1992 Soundtrack Now on Vinyl LP + Insert
One Way Static Records has announced their vinyl presentation of the original motion picture soundtrack to Clive Barker’s 1992 horror film, CANDYMAN, featuring the film score by Philip Glass.
Clive Barker who wrote the story for CANDYMAN is a multi-talented artist, painter, film director, and producer. The extent of his work is endless, spawning NIGHTBREED, HELLRAISER, LORD OF ILLUSIONS, RAWHEAD REX and the Books of Blood just to name a few.
Philip Glass also needs no introduction. In the past 30 years he has composed more than twenty operas, eight symphonies and a multitude of concertos. Considered one of the most influential minimalist composers of the last century, Glass has also written music for experimental theater and for Academy Award-winning motion pictures such as THE HOURS and Martin Scorsese’s KUNDUN, while KOYAANISQATSI, his initial filmic landscape with Godfrey Reggio and the Philip Glass Ensemble, may be the most radical and influential mating of sound and vision since FANTASIA. Other compositions include HAMBURGER HILL & THE TRUMAN SHOW.
With this new release, we present to you some of Glass’ best work, the eerie minimalistic soundtrack to Clive Barker’s CANDYMAN. This release is available as a limited classic black vinyl edition (with obi strip) & on the several color vinyl variants (see details at OneWayStatic).
All versions also come with an insert containing exclusive and extensive liner notes by author Clive Barker, composer Philip Glass, director Bernard Rose and actors Tony Todd, Ted Raimi, and Xander Berkeley.
