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 ‚ÄėSodium Party‚Äô, 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 here‚Ä¶ but the recipe is all the composer‚Äôs own.
‚ÄėSodium Party‚Äô, is actually Steve Nolan‚Äôs second score, with the composer having a distinguished background in documentary work. Like any good film music, Nolan‚Äôs soundtrack for ‚ÄėSodium Party‚Äô 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 listen‚Ä¶
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 ‚Äď 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...
