RIYL: Dark Modern Film Scores
Label: Spun Out Of Control
New London-based music label Spun Out Of Control has launched with a limited edition audio cassette release of the haunting score to Irish independent movie â€˜Sodium Partyâ€™, written and produced by composer Steve Nolan.
Mix Clint Mansell together with Vangelis, Angelo Badalamenti and Nine Inch Nails and you have a flavour of the ever-changing and evolving sounds on offer hereâ€¦ but the recipe is all the composerâ€™s own.
â€˜Sodium Partyâ€™, is actually Steve Nolanâ€™s second score, with the composer having a distinguished background in documentary work. Like any good film music, Nolanâ€™s soundtrack for â€˜Sodium Partyâ€™ elevates the movie to which it is attached to a higher level. But moreover, devoid of the surrealistic, fairytale imagery of the movie that inspired it, it makes for an enchanting, haunting and surprisingly moving standalone listenâ€¦
Presented as a limited edition 15-track, 45-minute split colour audio cassette
(Side A white, Side B black), mirroring the duality of the lead character in the movie â€“ and the fact that the lush score takes a darker, more industrial electronic feel on the second side. Limited to 100 hand numbered units worldwide.
Limited Edition Cassette
Professionally dubbed & imprinted C45 cassette with artwork exclusive to this release & specially commissioned design by Eric Adrian Lee (Mondo/DeathWaltz/Giallo Disco).
This limited hand numbered edition comes as a colour split shell (Side A: white with black text, Side B, black with white text) mirroring the light/dark tones of the score & also the duality of the film's protagonist...
