  1. Posted: Oct 29, 2021 - 12:11 AM By: Ford A. Thaxton (Member) Jerry Goldsmith's Score for "Poltergeist" featuring Bruce Botnick, Dan Redfeld and Tim Rodier http://asmac.org/images/com_eventbooking/EventC/poltergeist_2.png Take a deep dive to the other side with an inside look at Jerry Goldsmith’s score to Poltergeist featuring Dan Redfeld and Tim Rodier of Omni Music Publishing Goldsmith once said that the role of a film composer was to score the emotion, not the visuals, and this Oscar-nominated horror masterwork demonstrates that philosophy perfectly. Although the ghostly Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg film brings the scares, Goldsmith looked beyond that to score the underlying love between the Freeling family that comes under threat from the supernatural scourge. The result is a powerful score that mixes tender lyricism in the form of Carol Anne’s Theme with some of the most complex and compelling material of Goldsmith’s career, a score that brilliantly pinballs between shock and awe. An enduring masterpiece in the composer’s impressive oeuvre. TCM is currently streaming Poltergeist.

In 1979, his career expanded into film when he mixed for the Star Trek movie. It was on that project where Bruce met Jerry Goldsmith. The two built a friendship and partnership in making movie music together that spanned over 110 movies! During this time, Bruce formed a sound company and designed a few studios, which resulted in winning two TEC Awards for excellence in audio. For full film credits, please check Bruce Botnick's IMDb page. Award-winning American composer, conductor, orchestrator and producer Dan Redfeld has had his music and arrangements performed internationally from the concert hall to the musical theatre stage to the recording studio. His credits include the following: Music director: It Shoulda Been You, (Musical Theatre Guild), Bright Star, Beauty & The Beast, (Susan Egan), The Who's Tommy, (Alice Ripley), Chess, (Susan Egan/Matt Morrison), My Fair Lady, Jonathan Pryce, assistant MD), Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, Peter Pan, Evita, and dozens more. Conductor for LA Opera's Educom since 2003. Composer: A Hopeful Place, Arioso for Oboe, Percussion & Strings, (Santa Barbara Symphony premiere), January 15, 1947 for Solo Harp, Fantasy for Violin & Piano, Travels for Piano Quartet, and Dance Sketches. Tim Rodier is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music with no less than a dual major in composition and film scoring. He has since become a successful composer and orchestrator with dozens of top credits to his name: Among other things, he orchestrated on Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Little Fockers and Into the Wild as well as the TV show Duets. Music prep credits include A-list titles such as Saving Mr. Banks, Skyfall, Men in Black 3, The Iron Lady, Despicable Me, WALL-E, Jarhead, Spider-Man 2, Charlotte’s Web and the TV series Angels in America. In addition, Tim is also the founder and owner of Omni Music Publishing, a successful publishing company with the goal to make full film scores available to the public. Scores available through what composer Austin Wintory calls “a legitimate goldmine” are some of the great classics of film music history: Bernard Herrmann’s North by Northwest, Basic Instinct by Jerry Goldsmith and Elmer Bernstein’s score to Ghostbusters have found a permanent home here, as have Don Davis’ The Matrix, Danny Elfman’s Batman and Batman Returns, all-time favorite The Wizard of Oz by Herbert Stothart, Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg and James Horner’s Willow. And after a long battle with a life-threatening liver disease that required multiple transplants in 2019, Tim and Omni Music Publishing have more titles are in the works.

  2. CD includes Digital Download - 24 Bit Wav, MP3, Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com presents the original motion picture soundtrack to GHOULIES IV, featuring music composed by Chuck Cirino for the 1994 horror comedy directed by Jim Wynorski, written by Mark Sevi and starring Peter Liapis, Barbara Alyn Woods, Stacie Randall, Raquel Krelle, Bobby Di Cicco, Tony Cox, Arturo Gil, Antonia Dorian and Ace Mask . GHOULIES IV continues the longtime collaboration between filmmaker Jim Wynorski and composer Chuck Cirino, which includes films such as CHOPPING MALL, DEATHSTALKER II, NOT OF THIS EARTH, TRANSYLVANIA TWIST, A DOGGONE CHRISTMAS, A DOGGONE HOLLYWOOD and, most recently, A DOGGONE ADVENTURE. GHOULIES IV centers around a retired occultist turned police officer named Jonathan Graves (Peter Liapis) whose ex-lover Alexandria (Stacie Randall) summons creatures from the netherworld to hunt down a powerful amulet that will set Faust the demon ruler free upon the world. Meanwhile, two ghoulies waddle through an open porthole onto the streets of Los Angeles dishing out mayhem and madness as they search for a way home. The electronic score for GHOULIES IV employs an arsenal of scoring techniques Cirino initially explored on CHOPPING MALL. It’s chock-full of frenetic sixteenth-note synth licks, regurgitating melodies, bizarre synth soundscapes, punctuations of synth slap bass, and a litany of pulsating percussion. Chuck Cirino did not start his career as a composer, but rather as a programmer in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania for a Public Access cable TV station, where he learned how to create TV shows by himself, without a crew. In his spare time, he experimented with the station’s video equipment and created a series of genre productions that allowed him the opportunity to learn how to incorporate special effects into his work. After relocating to California, Cirino transitioned into directing high-end special effects television commercials. His first work as composer was for the 1980 cult film GYPSY ANGELS, which starred Vanna White and Richard Roundtree. Since then he has scored films for Roger Corman, directed music videos for bands like Earth, Wind & Fire and The Dickies’ KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, and has recorded over 40 music soundtracks for feature films including SORCERESS, HARD TO DIE, TRANSYLVANIA TWIST, and many others. Most recently, he has scored A DOGGONE CHRISTMAS, A DOGGONE HOLLYWOOD and A DOGGONE ADVENTURE. Chuck has worked as a producer, director, filmmaker, videographer, animator, special effects technician, editor, and composer. He executive produces and directs WEIRD TV, a television series featuring weird Americans, bizarre news, unbelievable events and outlandish skits. Chuck’s credits also include executive producer and director of the Sci Fi Channel projects, WORLDWIDE WEIRD and WARPED IN SPACE, and BABERELLAS, an independent Sci Fi feature distributed by Xenon Pictures. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring GHOULIES IV to compact disc for the first time, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author and composer Brian Satterwhite, with the participation of the composer. GHOULIES IV is a limited edition release of 500 units. As a special offer, the first 50 people to order the album from the record label’s website will have their copy autographed by the composer at no additional charge. GHOULIES IV is expected to begin shipping the week of May 10th. 1. Cinetel Films Logo/Alexandra Summons Faust/Ghoulies Arrive/Main Titles (6:14) 2. Convenience Store Robbery/Shootout (2:42) 3.

  3. CD includes Digital Download - 24 Bit Wav, MP3 and Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents THE ALAN HOWARTH COLLECTION, VOLUME 2, featuring music composed and performed by Alan Howarth for several projects from his filmography presented here CD for the first time. This collection of rare and previously unreleased tracks composed by Alan Howarth kicks off with the score for ARCADE, directed by Albert Pyun and written by David S. Goyer. Released in 1993, ARCADE tells the story of a psychologically compromised suburban teen named Alex (Megan Ward) who discovers her mother has committed suicide. One day after a particularly troubling day at school, Alex and her friends dart off to Dante’s Inferno, a local video game hangout, where a new virtual reality game called “Arcade” is being test-marketed by Difford (John de Lancie) a tech company snake-oil salesman who rewards the curious teens with home console versions of the game. Unknown to the kids, those who dare play the game and lose are imprisoned inside the console by a digital human-hybrid villain named Arcade (Johnathan Fuller). Over time the game infiltrates and manipulates their minds. Ultimately, it’s left up to Alex and Nick (Peter Billingsley) to convince the game’s lead programmer to help them free their friends and end Arcade’s deadly reign of technological terror. In addition to Howarth’s score for ARCADE, THE ALAN HOWARTH COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 includes a block of odds and ends from other projects in his filmogragraphy. For THE BEASTMASTER, Howarth composed a piece of music that was meant for the trailer but ultimately went unused. For BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, at the request of composer James Horner, Howarth composed a piece of source music for the scene that introduces Gelt, played by Robert Vaughn. MONSTERS was a weekly horror anthology series that typically featured a different monster antagonist each week, ranging from animatronic puppets from a fictional children’s TV show to weapon-wielding mutated lab rats. Some of the episodes blended comic elements into the horror and were adapted from stories written by noted horror authors including Stephen King. One episode entitled “Far Below” from Season Three was produced by Debra Hill who had previously produced HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, HALLOWEEN II, and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK for John Carpenter. Debra contracted Alan to compose this kind of music for the half-hour episode. Finally, THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND was released in 1983 and was the last film directed by Sam Peckinpah, the film was largely scored by Lalo Schifrin. Howarth was brought in at the last minute to write some additional suspense music for the film. Alan Howarth, in addition to being a composer, is an accomplished sound designer and editor, having worked on films such as STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, POLTERGEIST, TOTAL RECALL, ARMY OF DARKNESS, BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA, STARGATE and many others. He has been a frequent music collaborator with John Carpenter on his films beginning with ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK in 1980 and including HALLOWEEN II & III, CHRISTINE, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, THEY LIVE and PRINCE OF DARKNESS and Alan has scored many films on his own, including RETRIBUTION, HALLOWEEN 4 & 5, THE DENTIST, HEADLESS, BOO!, EVILUTION, BASEMENT JACK and most recently, HOUSE AT THE END OF THE DRIVE, BRUTAL and PROMISE. Dragon’s Domain Records presents THE ALAN HOWARTH COLLECTION, VOLUME 2, featuring music composed and performed by Alan Howarth. The booklet contains liner notes written by author and composer Brian Satterwhite, including insights by composer Alan Howarth on the creation of the music. THE ALAN HOWARTH COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 is a limited edition release of 500 units and is expected to begin shipping the week of May 10th and can be ordered at www.buysoundtrax.com.

  4. CD includes Digital Download - 24 Bit Wav, MP3, Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, presents the original motion picture soundtrack for INSEMINOID, featuring music composed, arranged and performed by John Scott for the 1981 science fiction horror film directed by Norman J. Warren, written by Nick and Gloria Maley and starring Robin Clarke, Jennifer Ashley, Stephanie Beacham, Steven Grives, Barrie Houghton, Rosalind Lloyd, Victoria Tennant, Trevor Thomas, Heather Wright, David Baxt and Judy Geeson. INSEMINOID tells the story of a crew of interplanetary archaeologists who are threatened when an alien creature impregnates one of their members (Geeson), causing her to develop a psychosis and mutilate her colleagues one by one. INSEMINOID was directed by British filmmaker Norman J. Warren, known primarily for a series of late ‘70s-’80s horror films, including SATAN’S SLAVE, PREY, BLOODY NEW YEAR and the like and produced by Richard Gordon known for a variety of films but specializing in horror movies such as THE HAUNTED STRANGLER, FIEND WITHOUT A FACE, CORRIDORS OF BLOOD, and DEVIL DOLL. Warren shot the film during May and June 1980, with a £1 million budget, half of which was financed by Hong Kong’s Shaw Brothers (their first investment in a British film). To compose the film’s score, Warren brought in distinguished orchestral composer John Scott, who by 1981 had composed wide-ranging scores for some 86 films and television series, beginning with James Hill’s 1965 Sherlock Holmes mystery, A STUDY IN TERROR. Scott’s efforts in the genre have included films such as Freddie Francis’ TROG, the West German thriller MARK OF THE DEVIL PART II, Kevin Connor’s THE PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT, and the magnificent score for 1980’s time-travel film, THE FINAL COUNTDOWN (along with GREYSTOKE, KING KONG LIVES, THE WICKER TREE amongst the 70 scores subsequent to INSEMINOID). Warren and Scott had worked together previously on his film, SATAN’S SLAVE. When it came to their next collaboration, INSEMINOID, using even a small orchestra was beyond the budget; leaving electronics as the only viable means. In the process, Scott made use of synthesized rock-and-roll elements (low basso structures, electronic drums, and in particular a recurring, 8-note motif shared between electric guitar and synths, most notably in the main titles and end credits, mixed over a variegated abundance of synthetic substances. As the mixing of the electronic score took shape, enhanced by many hours of multi-tracking and overdubbing, Scott was aided in recording the score by the Pinewood Studios music mixer Otto Snel. For nearly sixty years, John Scott has established himself as one of the finest composers working in films today, having collaborated with the foremost producers and directors worldwide, including Richard Donner, Mark Damon, Hugh Hudson, Norman Jewison, Irvin Kershner, Daniel Petrie, Roger Spottiswoode and Charlton Heston, among others. He has been an essential voice in international scoring that thoroughly belies his occasional over-looked stature in the midst of 'brand name' composers. Frequently associated with Hollywood's finest composers, including Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein and John Williams, John Scott has created a body of work that stands up as some of the finest music ever written for film. Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, presents the world premiere compact disc release of INSEMINOID, featuring music composed, arranged and performed by John Scott, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. The booklet contains liner notes written by noted author Randall Larson INSEMINOID is a limited edition of 500 units and is expected to start shipping the week of May 10th. 1. Main Title (2:38) 2.

  14. This week we will be dropping four new CD releases. The first will be a new Composer Collection—this time it’s a composer who is new to the DRAGON’S DOMAIN catalogue. The album is a 2-CD set featuring scores that were released in the 1980’s on LP, but never on CD. One is flat-out adventure film score and the other is a noirish detective thriller. Neither film takes place in the USA (though the composer is a Hollywood veteran). Here are samples of both scores: Sample #1: https://tinyurl.com/y3rj6qnw Sample #2: https://tinyurl.com/yy7vbc64 The next is release is from the early 1990’s, a rather fun little family comedy with a charming score by the composer that hasn’t been released in any form ever, We’ll have autographed booklets available on this one. Here is a sample: https://tinyurl.com/y4uhpu9l The third release is a reissue of a classic 1980’s horror score remixed and rebuilt from the ground up with the help of the composer. In our opinion sounds better then ever before. Sorry - no samples on this one because you’d guess it in a second. Autographed booklets will be available on this one also. The last is a fantasy-comedy from the mid-1990’s that is pretty obscure, from a favorite composer of ours. The music is just loads of fun and deserves to be heard at long last and. Autographed booklets will be available on this one. Here is sample: https://tinyurl.com/y4yy9oo9 All four titles (and perhaps a digital-only release as well) should appear early Wednesday!

LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “Beyond The Next Mountain” https://tinyurl.com/y9xkucj6 LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “The Living Word” https://tinyurl.com/y72o4efu LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “EZEKIEL FILE" https://tinyurl.com/ybxql5o9 2-CD SET includes 24 Bit Wav, MP3 and Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents THE EDWARD DAVID ZELIFF COLLECTION, VOLUME 1 , featuring music composed by Edward David Zeliff for several projects from his filmography. Edward David Zeliff has spent many years in the religious, student, and secular film communities composing and conducting scores for short subjects and features, leading studio orchestras in London and Los Angeles. He is a composer, pianist, arranger, and conductor, having completed his Bachelor of Music in Composition at the California Institute of the Arts, and earning his Masters and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees in Composition from Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Zeliff's catalogue features an extensive collection of choral works that have been performed nationally and internationally by many distinguished ensembles and conductors. In addition to his vast concert library of choral, piano, solo vocal, instrumental, and orchestral works, Zeliff has composed a handful of film scores, most of them made by and for Christian audiences. THE EDWARD DAVID ZELIFF COLLECTION presents some of these scores for the first time on compact disc. Released in 1981, BEYOND THE NEXT MOUNTAIN was a feature-length biopic shot on 35mm in remote locations of India, Hawaii, and rural California. The film began its existence with the title UNDER FIRE, for which Zeliff composed, recorded and delivered a completed score. Upon completion, UNDER FIRE sat on the shelf for almost a year until the financiers came to the conclusion it was not reflective of the narrative tone and artistic vision they were ultimately striving for. They replaced the original director, reshot additional footage, and rehired Zeliff to rescore a radically altered cut of the picture. Now called BEYOND THE NEXT MOUNTAIN, the film was quite a departure from its original manifestation, telling the tale of a tribe of hawkish headhunters situated in the eastern mountainous region of India on the border with Burma. Against admonitions from his own government, a British missionary journeys to the area and wielding the Gospel of John, single-handedly converts the tribe to Christianity effectively ending their warmongering ways. All of the cues Zeliff composed for BEYOND THE NEXT MOUNTAIN were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England by Eric Tomlinson (STAR WARS, 1977; RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, 1981). UNDER FIRE was recorded at CTS Studios in Wembley, England by John Richards. Both scores are complete in chronological order based on their appearance in the film. THE LIVING WORD was a feature length documentary film produced by World Wide Pictures, a film distributor and production company established as a subsidiary of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The producers and director were so impressed with Zeliff’s music for BEYOND THE NEXT MOUNTAIN, they hired him to score their film comprised of exquisitely shot 35mm footage of various Renaissance artworks, landmarks, and locales scattered throughout the Holy Land. A southern preacher narrates various stories related to the Biblical account of each image. Zeliff’s enlightening forty-minute orchestral score, backed by an eight-voice female chorus were recorded together at the same time in the sanctuary of a gorgeous church in Los Angeles, California. EZEKIEL FILE was a twenty-four minute multi-media presentation put on display at a museum in Israel. Utilizing multiple mediums including projected slides and 16mm film footage, the exhibit included three coordinated projectors—left, center, and right—giving the viewer an immersive aural and visual experience. Zeliff’s music had to be written to sound like one continual piece of music, but was broken up to reflect the various segments of the exhibit. PILATE’S EASTER was a clever thirty-minute 16mm religious program which the composer refers affectionately as a “church basement” film because it was intended to be shown to religious groups of various Christian denominations as “faith reinforcement” pieces. The presentation of PILATE’S EASTER was told in the style of THIS IS YOUR LIFE. In this spiritual adaptation, PILATE’S EASTER pits Pontius Pilate and his wife Procula against a host who carries them through the trials and tribulations of their lives. Pilate was played by Brian Dennehy early in his acting career. PILATE’S EASTER provided Zeliff with an opportunity to compose a wide variety of different styles of music to support the film. Both scores for EZEKIEL FILE and PILATE’S EASTER were recorded by Tony Smyles in the fellowship hall of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Los Angeles, California. Dragon’s Domain Records presents THE EDWARD DAVID ZELIFF COLLECTION, VOLUME 1, featuring music composed by Edward David Zeliff presented for the very first time on two compact discs. The music has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and the liner notes have been written by author and composer Brian Satterwhite, with the participation of the composer.

From the toppling of Seattle’s Space Needle, a passenger train swallowed up by a giant crack in the earth, and the Golden Gate Bridge collapse to the film’s catastrophic 10.5 earthquake which separates a large portion of California’s southwestern coast to float off into the Pacific. By the time he composed 10.5 in 2004, Lee Holdridge had 34 years of experience composing music for films and television. Holdridge’s experience scoring for television, in particular, had given him a reputation as a competent and dependable composer. It was his association with NBC television that brought him in to score 10.5. Holdridge had scored a handful of dramatic mini-series prior to 10.5, mostly historical subjects, but his 1999 NBC mini-series ATOMIC TRAIN, an action thriller about a disposal company transporting an atomic bomb who conceals the device on a freight train to save money, gave him a chance to flex his action movie chops. Holdridge had been primarily an orchestral composer when it came to film scoring and higher-budgeted TV movies and mini-series, but 10.5 didn’t have the budget for a fully orchestral score. This was the era where television production companies didn’t have the kind of budgets that permitted full orchestras, so the bulk of 10.5’s score was recorded via MIDI. But Holdridge did manage to bring in a few live instruments to sweeten an otherwise electronic score. Most of the score was performed recording digital instruments into MIDI, allowing Holdridge and Robert Irving to manipulate the sounds and give the disaster music its proportional sonic size. The electronic foundation of 10.5’s score benefits from Holdridge’s experience as an orchestral composer and conductor when it came to realizing an authentic orchestral sound via digital means. Lee Holdridge was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1944. He spent his early years in Costa Rica, beginning music studies on the violin at the age of ten with Hugo Mariani, then the conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. Later, Holdridge moved to New York to continue his music studies and begin his professional career as a composer. Holdridge’s successes in New York came to the attention of Neil Diamond who brought Holdridge to Los Angeles to write arrangements for his forthcoming albums. A string of Gold and Platinum hits followed, which led to Diamond and Holdridge collaborating on the film score for JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL. Since that time, Holdridge has scored numerous film such as SPLASH, BIG BUSINESS, MR. MOM, MICKI & MAUDE, 16 DAYS OF GLORY, SYLVESTER, A TIGER’S TALE, EL PUEBLO DEL SOL, OLD GRINGO, PASTIME and BROTHERS AT WAR. His television work include MOONLIGHTING, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, the complete eight hour remake of EAST OF EDEN, DREAMER OF OZ, Hallmark Hall Of Fame’s ONE AGAINST THE WIND and THE STORY LADY. Lee also began a very successful collaboration with Moriah Films, the film division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, with the Academy Award winning documentary feature film THE LONG WAY HOME. In addition to his film career, Mr. Holdridge has had an extensive repertoire of concert works performed and recorded. He has also worked with many major recording artists having written, arranged and conducted for Placido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Brian May of Queen, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, John Denver, Neil Sedaka, Daniel Rodriguez, Al Jarreau, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, Natalie Cole, Jane Oliver and many others. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring 10.5 to compact disc for the first time, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland under the composer’s supervision.

  19. [/img] https://tinyurl.com/yaque9of . THE DAY TIME ENDED is presented as a limited edition of 500 units. LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “THE DAY TIME ENDED" https://tinyurl.com/y7ymtmwf CD includes Digital Download-24 Bit Wav, MP3, Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records presents a new release of THE DAY TIME ENDED, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com. THE DAY TIME ENDED features music composed by Richard Band (RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, GHOST WARRIOR, TROLL) for the 1979 science fiction/adventure film directed by John ‘Bud’ Cardos, written by Wayne Schmidt, J. Larry Carroll and David Schmoeller, starring Jim Davis, Bentley Mitchum, Dorothy Malone, Marcy Lafferty, Natasha Ryan and Scott Kolden. Composer Richard Band emerged in the late 1970s as a horror music specialist. It was an appropriate legacy, being the son of prolific filmmaker Albert Band and the younger brother of Empire Pictures/Full Moon Entertainment’s genre specialist Charles Band. Richard began his association with film music in 1978 with the unique electronic score to LASERBLAST. The score was composed in collaboration with Joel Goldsmith, son of movie maestro Jerry Goldsmith. Band’s second score was for Charles’ production of THE DAY TIME ENDED, produced in 1978 but not released until 1980 by Compass International Pictures. The film’s small cast of just six people make up a kind of extended nuclear family whose escape from city life for the high desert becomes a struggle against the strange and bizarre situations they encounter. As their remote ranch home is invaded by a miniature gremlin, a compact, heat-ray-armed spaceship the size of a large toaster, buzzed by glowing flying saucers, and threatened by pudgy, battling monsters, they are finally transported through a space/time warp into another planet or perhaps dimension, gathering together to perhaps share a bright new future in a shining city of light. Because LASERBLAST had pleased both Compass International and Charles Band Productions, Richard was brought in to the production, but not initially as its composer. His function was more as a line producer. Having done LASERBLAST, Band’s compositional credit was good, even with a credit of just one score, and he got along well with director Bud Cardos. They would work together again a few years later on MUTANT. Cardos was willing to have him write the film’s music and to record it with an orchestra. Remarkably, Band was able to get a 35 piece orchestra in London to record the score. Band had worked with music producer Don Perry on several projects previously, and it was Perry who set up the session at the Music Center in Wembley, London. Perry brought in British music contractor John Watson, who put together the musicians and also conducted the orchestra for two three-hour recording sessions. Joel Goldsmith served as the score’s sound mixer. A challenge Band faced on this score was figuring out how to make a small orchestra sound big, knowing he was restricted to just 35 players. The answer was in the way he orchestrated the music. Band kept the orchestration relatively simple, mainly because he knew he had a lot of music to record in those two three-hour sessions, so it couldn’t be too complicated. He also orchestrated it in a way that the keys and instrumentations were a little bit thicker than they would be in certain other keys, making the sound a bit richer. Band took composing the music for the film very seriously, focusing on the emotional resonance of the characters and their situation to serve the storyline, such as it was. He creates a very structured score, essentially allowing his music to speak for what the final shooting script does not. Richard Band was born in Los Angeles on December 28, 1953. He is the son of film producer-director-writer Albert Band (THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE – screen adaptation), brother to producer-distributor Charles Band and uncle to young rock star Alex Band of the rock group ‘The Calling’. Shortly after his brother Charles had formed his first movie company, Richard decided to take a break from music and began to work as an assistant director on some of his films. He then went from assistant director to production manager, to associate producer and finally producer on over 13 films. Richard has since gone on to score over 75 feature films and many television productions including multiple episodes of STARGATE SG-1, WALKER: TEXAS RANGER and Disney's SING ME A STORY series. Richard has composed the music for more than 10 interactive computer/video games over the years and has had many soundtracks that have been released of his film works. Richard has also scored many documentaries including the award-winning series’ MOST DECORATED, BRUTE FORCE and WEAPONS OF WAR and has also contributed much music to other series’ like THE REAL WEST, CIVIL WAR JOURNALS and BIOGRAPHIES. His experience over the years has brought him to record over 22 film scores with internationally renowned orchestras such as THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, THE LONDON SYMPHONY and THE ROME PHILHARMONIC. He has also had his music recorded in Prague, Romania, Croatia and Munich. In more recent years, Richard has also enjoyed scoring a variety of family and comedy films for Viacom and Paramount Pictures as well as hundreds of animated vignettes for the WB kid's network all of which were scored with orchestra. His musical talents can also be heard on several amusement park rides including ALIENS - THE RIDE as well as several Vegas venues. Among the many interactive games Richard has scored the music for STAR TREK, WATERWORLD, CASPER, STONEKEEP, DECENT UNDER MOUNTAIN, CLAYFIGHTER and INVICTUS: THE SHADOW OF OLYMPUS. For this new remix of Richard Band’s THE DAY TIME ENDED, Dragon’s Domain Records has gone back to the original 24-track master from CTS in London, offering for the first time the unparalleled depth of sound remixing the score from that original master could achieve, digitally remastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland, including liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of the composer.

This album collects music from two historical documentaries, one historical docudrama, and an assortment of intimate duet performances intended to offer a musical portrait of composer David Spear THE COURAGE TO CARE is a 30-minute Holocaust documentary made in 1985; the film was nominated for an Oscar for best documentary short subject. The film was directed and produced Robert H. Gardner, with Richard Kaplan serving as an associate producer in the field shooting the testimonies; it was he who brought Spear into the production as composer, having known him from previous projects. The film, through interviews and location filming, recounts how many Jews were able to survive because they were rescued by non-Jewish people who risked their own lives to put them in their basements or in their closets or hide them from the Gestapo or the Nazis. Spear wrote the score for a quartet (viola, cello, clarinet, and piano), with Spear playing the piano himself. LINCOLN AND THE WAR WITHIN was a PBS Civil War dramatization focusing on the first few weeks of Lincoln’s presidency, which were crucial for the direction the country would take. Lincoln had to bridge the gap between the North and South while navigating the conflict that he had with William H. Seward, whom he had appointed his Secretary of State despite their longtime rivalry. Spear scored the film to be performed by a nonet—nine musicians, playing flute, oboe, clarinet, guitar, piano, and a string quartet (two violins, a viola, and a cello). THE TRIUMPH OF MEMORY was a follow-up to THE COURAGE TO CARE, reuniting Spear with director Robert H. Gardner and associate producer Richard Kaplan. Spear used a similar scoring approach but replaced the viola with a violin for his quartet on this project. In addition, he added a bit of percussion into the mix to give the music a sense of tension, like a ticking clock, as the stories are told and difficult memories flow forth. The main approach to scoring the montages between interviews was similar to that of the previous film, but Spear enhanced his palette to accommodate a slightly different tone, and to convey a little more of a folkish Eastern European sound and melody. The album concludes with a quintet of Spear’s original pieces performed by the composer on the piano accompanied by Eugene Friesen on cello. David Spear began his career orchestrating many film scores for Elmer Bernstein including AIRPLANE, ANIMAL HOUSE, HEAVY METAL and GHOSTBUSTERS. After his Broadway debut as Music Director of MERLIN, THE MAGICAL MUSICAL, Spear wrote scores for three Academy Award nominated films: RAINBOW WAR, BALLET ROBOTIQUE, and THE COURAGE TO CARE. He composed the music for the Emmy Award winning National Geographic documentary, SURVIVING EVEREST. One of his first major scores was for the 1981 vampire thriller FEAR NO EVIL, composed in collaboration with the film’s writer/director Frank LaLoggia. He led the Indianapolis Symphony for the 2008 premiere of THE LANGSTON HUGHES PROJECT featuring Ice-T and the Ron McCurdy Quartet. A dedicated educator, Spear served as faculty at Berklee College of Music (1991-1995), USC Thornton School of Music (1995-2006), NYU (2009-2013), and at Portland State as 2017 Artist-in-Residence. His work in academia and industry thrives on decades of creative collaboration with many notable artists, directors and scholars.

THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA is presented as a limited edition of 500 units. LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA ” https://tinyurl.com/ydatueuv CD includes Digital Download-24 Bit Wav, MP3, Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com presents the original motion picture soundtrack to THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA, featuring music composed by Fredric Ensign Teetsel, with additional themes by Chuck Cirino, for the 1990 horror film produced by Roger Corman, directed by Jim Wynorski, written by R.J. Robertson, based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, starring Nicole Eggert, David McCallum, Christopher Halsted, Lana Clarkson, Maria Ford, Gail Thackray, Clement von Franckenstein and Deborah Dutch. THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA is very loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “Morella,” written in 1935 and revised in 1939. In Poe’s story, Morella is a woman who dies in childbirth but her spirit re-inhabits the body of her young daughter only to have the child die young, returning Morella’s spirit into death along with her. Corman filmed a short version of the story as part of his 1962 anthology film TALES OF TERROR. Scripted by Richard Matheson, this loosely adapted version of “Morella” gave the daughter a name: Lorena. THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA modified the story further, retaining the daughter’s name Lorena, but setting the story in the midst of Colonial America as Morella is crucified for witchcraft, leaving her infant daughter in the care of her widower. Resurrected through blood sacrifices offered by her daughter’s governess, Morella is able to take over Lorena’s body and use it to achieve a physical resurrection. THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA harkens back to Corman’s acclaimed Edgar Allan Poe films—THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, THE TOMB OF LIGEIA, THE HAUNTED PALACE, and others from the 1960s. Wynorski’s regular composer, Chuck Cirino, was not able to work on this film so Concorde hired a first-time film composer named Fredric Teetsel, who was able to provide MORELLA with a symphonic orchestral score. What became the film’s main theme was a simple melody of Cirino’s that Wynorski was especially fond of, and has insisted on using in several of his films. In addition to Cirino’s themes, Teetsel composed several themes or motifs of his own, but even these were rooted in Cirino’s thematic architecture. Teetsel’s connections as an arranger and composer for performing orchestras in Arizona, including the state’s major symphony orchestra, allowed the film to have a period-supporting orchestral score without exceeding its budget. Fredric Teetsel was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and has been involved with a number of orchestras there. A graduate of the Groves School of Music, Teetsel found work orchestrating and conducting; he was Composer in Residence for the Scottsdale Symphony Orchestra in Arizona from 1983-1986 and 1986-1989 found him an in-house composer producing commercial jingles for local television and radio. He moved back to Los Angeles in 1989 and began visiting movie studios in the hopes of becoming involved in film scoring. One of them was Corman’s Concorde Pictures and THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA would be his first film score. His ongoing relationship with four professional orchestras in Arizona has supplied him with opportunities for commissions for pop orchestra arrangements and original compositions. Chuck Cirino has worked as a producer, director, filmmaker, videographer, animator, special effects technician, editor, and composer. He has scored films for Roger Corman, directed music videos for bands like Earth, Wind & Fire and The Dickies’ KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, and has recorded over 40 music soundtracks for feature films including SORCERESS, HARD TO DIE, TRANSYLVANIA TWIST, and many others. Most recently, he has scored A DOGGONE CHRISTMAS, A DOGGONE HOLLYWOOD and A DOGGONE ADVENTURE. He executive produces and directs WEIRD TV, a television series featuring weird Americans, bizarre news, unbelievable events and outlandish skits. Chuck’s credits also include executive producer and director of the Sci Fi Channel projects, WORLDWIDE WEIRD and WARPED IN SPACE, and BABERELLAS, an independent Sci Fi feature distributed by Xenon Pictures. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring THE HAUNTING OF MORELLA to compact disc for the first time, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author Randall Larson, with the participation of the composers.

LISTEN TO A SOUNDCLIP FROM “Ghost Warrior” https://tinyurl.com/y7sdgyee CD includes Digital Download-24 Bit Wav, MP3, Digital PDF Dragon’s Domain Records presents a new release of GHOST WARRIOR, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com. GHOST WARRIOR features music composed by Richard Band for the 1984 science fiction/action film directed by J. Larry Carroll, written by Tim Curnen, starring Hiroshi Fujioka, John Calvin, Janet Julian, Charles Lampkin, Frank Schuller and Robert Kino. Released in 1984, GHOST WARRIOR tells the story of Yoshimitsu, a renowned samurai in 16th Century Japan, who is wounded in a swordfight while trying to protect his wife from brigands. Yoshimitsu falls into an icy lake where he is quickly frozen. 432 years later his corpse is discovered in an ice cave and turned over to scientists in Los Angeles, who are hired to conduct an autopsy of the body. The team is led by Dr. Richards, who decides to try and revive the ancient corpse instead. Remarkably, the procedure is successful but Yoshi escapes when disturbed by a greedy security guard who tries to steal and pawn his katana sword. Fighting his way from the suburbs to downtown L.A., Yoshimitsu for all his mastery of swordplay and perception of Japanese culture circa 1552 is unable to comprehend 20th Century America, and can only defend himself at swordpoint after he runs afoul of a local street gang and, ultimately, the LAPD, leading to a tragic conclusion. The score for GHOST WARRIOR is a fusion of symphonic orchestral music, ethnic Japanese flutes and percussion, and an array of unusual percussion instruments invented and constructed by early 20th Century American composer Harry Partch (1901-1974). When Band got the assignment to score GHOST WARRIOR, he realized there was an opportunity to achieve something distinctive by combining ethnic Japanese instruments with the unique and versatile instruments of Partch. Band did some research on Partch’s instruments at the UCLA library. His first challenge was in figuring out how to communicate to musicians playing these instruments who are used to reading normal sheet music. At the same time, Band discovered that the top percussion player in Los Angeles, Emil Richards, had been Partch’s main disciple and had inherited all of Partch’s instruments. The Harry Partch percussion instruments were recorded in Hollywood at Group IV, a recording studio that no longer exists. The orchestral portions of the score were later performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Shirley Walker, who may have been the first woman to conduct the Royal Philharmonic for a film session. The end result is an expansive orchestral score that merges extremely unique percussive sounds with a richly symphonic melody structure accentuated by ethnic Japanese instruments. Richard Band was born in Los Angeles on December 28, 1953. He is the son of film producer-director-writer Albert Band (THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE – screen adaptation), brother to producer-distributor Charles Band and uncle to young rock star Alex Band of the rock group ‘The Calling’. Shortly after his brother Charles had formed his first movie company, Richard decided to take a break from music and began to work as an assistant director on some of his films. He then went from assistant director to production manager, to associate producer and finally producer on over 13 films. Richard has since gone on to score over 75 feature films and many television productions including multiple episodes of STARGATE SG-1, WALKER: TEXAS RANGER and Disney's SING ME A STORY series.
