John Carpenter: Vortex

On February 3rd 2015 Sacred Bones Records is releasing a collection of unreleased movie themes, penned by the one and only John Carpenter.

With the help of Cody Carpenter and composer Daniel Davies, the compilation will feature nine never heard before songs. Here’s what John Carpenter himself had to say about the project:

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 Cody and Daniel 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.

Here’s the song Vortex, which is the record’s opener…
