John Carpenter, the Legendary Director and Composer behind films Halloween, Escape From New York, They Live, Assault on Precinct 13 and numerous others will release his debut solo album Lost Themes on February 3, 2015.
Carpenter composed unsettling soundtrack works in the fifteen movies he has both directed and scored. “Lost Themes was all about having fun. It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I’m used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they’re supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It’s just fun. And I couldn’t have a better set-up at my house, where I depended on (collaborators) Cody (Carpenter, of the band Ludrium) and Daniel (Davies, who scored I, Frankenstein) to bring me ideas as we began improvising. The plan was to make my music more complete and fuller, because we had unlimited tracks. I wasn’t dealing with just analogue anymore. It’s a brand new world. And there was nothing in any of our heads when we started other than to make it moody,” Carpenter said via a press release.
