Perhaps most of you don’t know, but our high-end industry Mr. Analogue outspoke Michael Fremer was fully in charge for the creation of Tron soundtrack. He still cherish this work as very intimate and I’ll get him to say a word or two for the final review.
Audio Fidelity Disney’s TRON Original Motion Picture TRON by Wendy Carlos just arrived. What an excitement! Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio ensures this will be special even without mating the cartridge with the vinyl and give it a spin.
Why is that album so special? With me personally it correlate on many levels. It is the official soundtrack of one of the most memorable science fiction movies. Along Blade Runner, this soundtrack brought something unique and groundbraking in the sound atmosphere. Tron became timeless and legendary not only for its story and movie making, but for stand out music created by the Wendy Carlos. Her out of the box thinking and innovative use of synthesisers combined with classical score created a aural universe of its own. A journey worthy of taking even without the visual s. If you’re even a slight fan of electronic and instrumental music, then you couldn’t have missed Wendy Carlos work. Her’s Switched on Bach as well as soundtracks for two of cinema A Clockwork Orange and The Shining created for her a everlasting imprint in the history of cinema composing.
I’ll be enjoying this soundscape tonight. Slowly and with my full sensual arsenal being ready to grasp this masterpiece.
Stay tuned for upcoming fully fledged review soon. Thanks Marshall!
Double LP – two 180g translucent blue vinyl records
Disney’s video game crossover movie TRON was a notable landmark in the synthesis of electronic and traditional orchestral music. Wendy Carlos created a brilliant orchestral recording with symphonic backgrounds by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the UCLA Chorus which was later enhanced and upgraded with an electronic score. The result is an impressive soundscape that successfully and seamlessly fuses organic and electronic music.
The multi-Grammy award winning Wendy Carlos best-known for her popular “Switched on Bach,” series of albums also composed and performed on the soundtracks of two Stanley Kubrick cinema masterpieces, “A Clockwork Orange” and “The Shining.”
