Sébastien Devaud, aka Agoria, entered the world of electronic dance music at a peculiar moment in time. Unlike the first generation of techno producers, he’s too young to have been actively listening to early 80’s electronic pop by groups such as Depeche Mode or New Order. But unlike younger DJs and musicians, he’s been exposed […]

John Carpenter – Lost Themes II
Friday, March 4th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on John Carpenter – Lost Themes II

Image: 1602153 On Halloween 2014, the director and composer John Carpenter introduced the world to the next phase of his career with ‘Vortex,’ the first single from Lost Themes, his first-ever solo record. In the months that followed, Lost Themes right­fully returned Carpenter to the forefront of the discussion of music and film’s crucial intersection. Carpenter’s foundational primacy and lasting influence on genre score work was both rediscovered and reaffirmed. So widespread was the acclaim for Lost Themes, that the composer was moved to embark on something he had never before entertained – playing his music live in front of an audience.

2016 will host the first ever John Carpenter tour and in true Carpenter spirit, a sequel to Lost Themes: Lost Themes II. The follow-up brings quite a few noticeable changes to the process, which result in an even more cohesive record. Lost Themes’ cowriters Cody Carpenter (John’s son) and Daniel Davies (John’s godson) both returned. Cody was recently also heard as a composer for Showtime’s Masters of Horrorseries (Cigarette Burns and Pro-Life), and NBC’s Zoo. Davies was a composer for NBC’s Zoo, as well as the motion picture Condemned.

All three brought in sketches and worked together in the same city, a luxury they weren’t afforded on the first Lost Themes. The result was a more focused effort, one that was completed on a compressed schedule – not unlike Carpenter’s classic, notoriously low-budget early films. The musical world of Lost Themes II is also a wider one than that of its predecessor. More electric and acoustic guitar help flesh out the songs, still driven by Carpenter’s trademark minimal synth.

Keep your eyes peeled for John and his co-writers to hit the road next year performing both lost and newly found themes, in addition to retrospective work from Mr. Carpenter’s multi-generational career. Long live the Horror Master.

Alloy Orchestra – Man With The Movie Camera: Live At Third Man Rec.
Friday, October 10th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Alloy Orchestra – Man With The Movie Camera: Live At Third Man Rec.

Image: 1593134 The Alloy Orchestra double Live LP was recorded Direct-To-Acetate October, 12th in the Third Man Blue Room as the soundtrack to The Man With The Movie Camera Screening, cohosted by the Belcourt Theatre as part of the 2013 iNDie Festival.

It was only a lucky few iNDie Festival attendees who witnessed Alloy Orchestra’s performance of their soundtrack to the 1929 silent film ”The Man with the Movie Camera” in our Blue Room last Fall, so we are pleased to bring the recording to you in the form of a double LP. Alloy Orchestra is a 3-man musical ensemble – Roger C. Miller, Ken Winokur, & Terry Donahue – who use ”racks of junk,” synthesizers, and all sorts of other unusual instruments, found objects, and unlikely noisemakers to aurally accompany silent films. Roger Ebert has called them ”the best in the world at accompanying silent films,” and we can’t disagree. ”The Man with the Movie Camera,” directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova, is a documentary with no specific cast or narrative. In the film, a man carries out his day in the city as a member of the proud proletariat, capturing invention and the relationship between man and machine in Lenin’s Soviet Union.

Here’s a taste of their original soundtrack: http://youtu.be/7ZkvjWIEcoU Available from 24.10.2014

Bruno Nicolai / Roger Roger – Il Conte Dracula / Le Viiol Du Vampire
Thursday, April 10th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bruno Nicolai / Roger Roger – Il Conte Dracula / Le Viiol Du Vampire

Image: 1587943 Finders Kreepers continue their 7? series of vintage macabre film music with a volume dedicated to European vampire cinema with the two most notorious exponents of the horrotica genre at the helm. Although often put on the same platform the films of these two self-sufficient European filmmakers are in fact very different from each others celebrated efforts, having collaborated on just one occasion with Rollin directing a short dream sequence for Franco’s film Virgin Amongst The Living Dead (complete with its pulsating Bruno Nicolai score).

On the a-side of this installment we witness Franco and Nicolai back together for one of a handful of titles including the earliest appearances of the legendary Soledad Miranda. Completed in 1970, Il Conte Dracula brings together an unlikely cast of Miranda, Christopher Lee (in his archetypal role) and Klaus Kinski as a fly eating psychiatric patient made nine years before he would assume the role of the bloodsucking monarch for Herzog’s Nosferatu. Musically this feature bequeaths a lesser spotted score from Morricone’s arranger and sidekick Bruno Nicolai made in the same period as his delectable scores for Sergio Martino’s All The Colours Of The Dark and Case Of The Scorpions Tale as well as Franco’s very own Marquis De Sade 70 adaptation (FKR069). This timeless biting harpsichord score blends relentless orchestral pulses revealing Nicolai at his thematic and communicative best – laying a stylistic blueprint for other European vampire scores like Francois De Roubaix Les lèvres rouges and James Kenhelm Clarke’s Vampyres.

On the b-side our alternative programme reveals another undetected Jean Rollin nugget from his very first cinematic feature, the two part bloodthirsty melodrama Viol De Vampire. Edited in accordance with soundman Jean Denis Bonan’s original cinematic usage this swooping dreamscape theme falls somewhere between Theremin and bowed saw and stands up as one of the most beguiling French library cuts by Parisian mastermind Roger Roger – appropriated alongside other pre-licensed mood music cues for the first chapter of the director’s theatrical debut. Fans of cult British TV series The Prisoner might also recognise the theme due to its synchronisation in two episodes of the original 1960s series. Suitably complimenting the forthcoming Cacophonic release of Francois Tusques’ recently recovered studio scores made for the second chapter of the same feature (8CACKkLP) this standalone b-side provides yet another piece to Rollins vibrant picture puzzle.

George Duning / Gianfranco Reverberi – Bell, Book And Candle / Reincarnation…
Thursday, March 27th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on George Duning / Gianfranco Reverberi – Bell, Book And Candle / Reincarnation…

Image: 1587945 For the final chapter of the Finders Kreepers 7? series of bygone supernatural psychedelic cinema scores we combine a true universal classic with a very deep underground gem for this unlikely pairing of witchcraft films from entirely different cinematic perspectives.

Taken from a South American only 7? EP dedicated solely to the nightclub music of The Brothers Candoli in Richard Quine’s Bell Book And Candle, the tongue-in-cheek cat magic theme on the a-side of this release combines whirring electric pianos and muted horns to provide a classic kitsch-witch freaky tiki theme complete with purrs, meows and magical spells sharing the same dark comedic approach to the looming domestication of witchcraft shared in haxan classics like Rosemary’s baby and Virgin Witch as wellas comedies like Bewitched and Saxana.

The final side to this ten-part series finally sees the obscure ritualistic funk soundtrack to Renato Polselli’s Reincarnation Of Isobel available on vinyl for the first time since its ultra rare 1973 release (under a different name) on a small Italian imprint. Composed by library music stalwart Gianfranco Reverberi for a film that also goes by the name of Rites, Black Magic and Secret Orgies In The Fourteenth Century, the bizarre feature-length score does little to authenticate the stylistic vintage of the films plot and brings psych rock, synth and sound effects to the proceedings bequeathing gems such as this impending bass and percussion driven title sequence. Complete with explicit feminine vocalisations and sedated Euro mock afro rock textures this rare theme for the X-rated 1970s take on the 1922 Benjamin Christensen film Haxan does its best to provide a musical backdrop for a film that combines witchcraft, vampires and zombies combining all the key fantasy figures found in the Finders Kreepers series for an ultimate deep groove crescendo.
