Just last week, there was a brief moment where we thought the theme score for the upcoming Halloween film was released (it turned out to be a fake, so it’s probably for the better that it didn’t stay up for long). Composed by John Carpenter alongside his son Cody and Daniel Davies under the Sacred Bones Records banner, this writer is excited to see what the actual soundtrack will bring to the table.
Now, Sacred Bones has officially released a teaser for the soundtrack. Featuring lines of dialogue spoken by actor Jefferson Hall as the true crime documentarian in the film’s trailer, the clip is 30 seconds Long and features the album cover of the soundtrack, both on disc and record. Eventually, as we approach the end, a snippet of the Carpenter/Davies score is heard as that famously horrific piano tune is heard. The video eventually promotes that the album will be available on October 19th, the same day the film opens nationwide.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Carpenter explained the difference this time in producing the score. “It was transforming,” the legendary filmmaker/composer said. “It was not a movie I directed, so I had a lot of freedom in creating the score and getting into the director’s head. I was proud to serve as David Gordon Green’s vision.” In a statement, Davies went on to explain the idea and vision they had:
“We wanted to honor the original Halloween soundtrack in terms of the sounds we used. We used a lot of the Dave Smith OB-6, bowed guitar, Roland Jupo, Korg, Roli, Moog, Roland System 1, Roland System 8, different guitar pedals, mellotron, and piano.”
Let us know what you think of the 30-second teaser for the upcoming Halloween soundtrack!
