Some words on this issue: GIL MELLE: “Andromeda Strain OST” (Kapp – KRS-5513) Rare original US pressing. “Gil Melle, one of the most important composers today, has achieved an impressive landmark in creating the first all-electronic score for a major motion picture, the Andromeda strain. The work embodies the most revolutionary techniques in the annals of avant-garde music as well as film literature. Melle's central idea was to compose directly to the film and for this, he designed a special electronic music studio on the universal lot. it housed a complete rear-image projection facility as well as a number of one-of-a-kind electronic musical instruments. The most important of these is the percussotron iii, which the composer designed especially for Andromeda. it is important to note that an instrument has never been created specifically for a film score in the history of the medium. It is indeed percussionistic as its name implies, and is heard throughout the various tracks. musique concrete also plays an important role here. Many field trips were made by the artist in order to record the natural sounds of 20th century life. Liberally woven into the fabric of this music are the indigenous sounds of the jet propulsion labs in southern California, buzz saws, wind, bowling alleys and even the railways. Orchestral instruments are also included and many important soloists are represented. All of these elements were eventually electronically transformed to suit the needs of the Andromeda strain score. As futuristic as all of these sounds, it nevertheless owes its direct ancestry to the very first form of film music, the nickelodeon. The compositional method is essentially one of creatively shooting from the hip and in turn gaining a vast amount of artistic flexibility as well as a very personal. Representation of the composer's musical thinking”. (From Mimaroglu website). Melle's pieces ranks as cinema's first true electronic musical score. Using a battery of electronic instruments combined with reprocessed musique concrete sounds, Melle crafted a bizarre and compelling score that laced the picture with an unrelenting undercurrent of aimless, microscopic evil. The score's single repetitive theme is a rhythmically seething, cricket-like undulation for low-octave electronics and piano, associated with the mutating bacterial entity. Stunning piece of electronic music/ musique concrete and hard to track down these days. SHIPPING IS FROM JAPAN AND IS NOT 4$ - CHECK SHIPPING RATES HERE BELOW!!!
