Composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 classic, the Blade Runner soundtrack has assumed legendary status amongst fans of synthesizer music. Its combination of classical compositions with synth work perfect mirrors the futuristic atmospheric ambient noir of the original film. A classic of the genre.
Wendy Carlos' groundbreaking original score for Disney's 1982 sci-fi classic Tron is to see a vinyl reissue on Audio Fidelity Records.
The original release packed over 50 minutes of music onto a single LP, resulting in less-than-ideal sound quality, but this new pressing will spread the remastered tracks across two 180-gram records.
Originally envisioned by Carlos (who also scored A Clockwork Orange and The Shining) as a synth-based score with string section overdubs, production delays forced the composer to reverse the original plan and produce a mostly orchestral soundtrack with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Michael Fremer, who was the sound supervisor on Tron, is in charge of the remastering and will contribute liner notes.
The soundtrack includes two songs by Journey, 'Only Solutions' and '1990's Theme', which will also appear on the reissue.
