  1. [/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.

[/img] GHOST WARRIOR - NEWLY REMIXED 2020 EDITION OF ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK BY RICHARD BAND Click here to go to Product Page https://tinyurl.com/y7mvwss9 GHOST WARRIOR is presented as a limited edition of 500 units. 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’.
