Just like its first season released in 2016 on Netflix, Stranger Things 2 draws heavily on horror and science-fiction movies from the 80s, especially those by Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter. This unapologetic homage naturally reflects on the show’s soundtrack, which, like the previous season, is created by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, two members of the band S U R V I V E from Austin. Between the two seasons of the show, the band took advantage of the opportunity to release a second album in September 2016 (RR7349) and to perform on stage. The two men already indirectly tried their hand in producing music for movies in 2014 since two of their tracks showed up in the psychological thriller The Guest. It’s incidentally thanks to this movie that the directors of Stranger Things (the Duffer Brothers) discovered the existence of S U R V I V E. According to the composers themselves, the soundtrack of this second opus is characterized by experimental, “demonic and supernatural” sounds. Among the tracks that most fit this description, we find Descent Into The Rift, Soldiers and It’s A Trap, in which the dissonances embrace synthetic timbers that are particularly hair-raising. The composers’ formula to create fear is this: they invent sounds close to familiar sounds, ones that sound remotely like voices or animal calls for example. Being two modest artists, Dixon and Stein often don't mention when they’re interviewed that their music can display onirism, and even tenderness, like in the tracks On The Bus and Eggo In The Snow. As for the musical tools used by the tandem, they travel through the ages as we find both acoustic instruments, like the waterphone, and electronic—and thus more contemporary—sounds. It’s also worth noting that in addition to the show’s score, the album includes fifteen “beyond the soundtrack” bonus tracks, composed in the same spirit. © NM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
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.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
