If you like John Carpenter as a director, you’ll like him as a composer! The horror and action films expert belongs in fact to these directors that compose the music of their own movies, like Charlie Chaplin or Clint Eastwood. Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 is a somewhat peculiar compilation in that he has recorded again for the occasion his most famous themes. In order to do this, Carpenter surrounded himself with collaborators he had worked with on his two solo albums (Lost Themes and Lost Themes II): Daniel Davies (the son of Dave Davies from the Kinks!) and Cody Carpenter (his son). The compilation opens with In The Mouth Of Madness, whose guitar riff is now performed by Daniel Davies (in the 1994 soundtrack, it was performed by his father). The track reminisces of the atmosphere from Metallica’s Enter Sandman, whose lyrics evoke childhood nightmares. This is one of the director’s favorite songs, which is not surprising as his most famous movie (Halloween) tells the story of a serial killer obsessed with the crime he committed as a child. The captivating and minimalist theme of the latter movie has of course a place of honor in this anthology, in an interpretation rather close to the original. You’ll also find many other pieces taken from Carpenter 70s/80s era, in particular the disturbing and melancholic piano from The Fog or the heavy synthesizers from Assault on Precinct 13. But sometimes John Carpenter takes his composer hat off, and he had the good idea to include The Thing, when this soundtrack was composed by the Italian maestro Ennio Morricone. This rather complete overview of Carpenter’s musical and cinematographic career shows both his love of synthesizers (which he uses as much for repetitive melodies as for distressing ambience tracks), but also of a rather heavy rock not devoid of lyricism. © NM/Qobuz

John Carpenter, Image and Sound

John Carpenter is one of those directors who composes his own music for his own films. For the upcoming release on the 20th October of an album for which he re-recorded his most famous themes (Anthology: Movie Themes 1974 - 1998), we return to the double-hatted master of horror and action films.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
