Eastern Promises official site and soundtrack

Thanks to the Plasma Pool for spotting that the official site is up and that a preview of Howard Shore's score can be found at SoundtrackNet. You can also find an insightful video interview with Cronenberg discussing Eastern Promises at eTALK. Interestingly he denies Map To The Stars is his next project scorning IMDB and joking he will find out what he is next directing by "looking on the internet." Good news personally as I am much more interested in seeing him produce a self-penned project a la PainKillers or Red Cars rather than putting his spin on an existing script.

It opens at Paris' Theatre du Chalet next July before transferring to Los Angeles. Cronedrome has decided to cross the channel and enjoy this once in a lifetime spectale and so I've bagged tickets for the Saturday night. Follow this link to the theatre's online ticket system and here to the official website dedicated to the opera. This press release gives the full story. Now what about Videodrome the opera?

Videodrome "ambient exploration"

On a similar note Kill Ugly Radio has created "an ambient exploration of David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, utilizing Howard Shore’s brooding, minimal score and many sounds and dialog from the movie itself." Yep but not as bad as you might think. Good way to re-experience the film on the old ipod. Beware - big file!

Rabid Soundtrack

Oto scores again with this smart 28 minute suite from Rabid replete with dialogue and rabid howlings. Also posted is the original library album from which at least one track was drawn - "Vulcain". Ivan Reitman, Cronenberg's then producer/music director (pre-Shore) assembled the music from a variety of music library sources and it's pleasing that sites such as Oto's are dedicated to making this music available again.
