Ben Lovett - Synchronicity

Artist: Ben Lovett
P: 2016

“Synchronicity” is a 2015 American science fiction film directed, written, and edited by Jacob Gentry. It stars Chad McKnight, A. J. Bowen, Brianne Davis, Scott Poythress, and Michael Ironside. After he invents a time travel machine, physicist Jim Beale becomes suspicious of the motives of a woman that he meets. He sends himself back in time to learn more about her and potentially stop her from stealing his invention for an untrustworthy venture capitalist. Yeah I will definitely see this movie. But what really makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside is what composer Ben Lovett said about writing the score “Jacob and I were both raised on 80’s movies and the music of John Carpenter, Wendy Carlos, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre and others who pioneered the sound of that era”. Me too, me too! Do I dare to hope we’ll get a score in THAT sound, my most precious and dear? Yep, he says just that. Let me just make myself comfortable here. The Sci-fi sound of the 80… is there anything more awesome than this? The metallic darkness… the melodic inserts that create the illusion of hope when in fact they are just the reflection the light on the metallic carcass of the robots coming to get us… The inflexions of the sound simulating vortexes and tight spaces… the computer sounds that make me think of the most primitive of devices… sounds that remind me of my childhood… of a simpler time, of the nicest time. Yeah this sound might spell danger and darkness but it’s a sweet sanctuary for me and the musical place I feel most comfortable in. When a score feeds my hunger for nostalgia it will quickly become one of my favorites. When I listen to “Synchronicity” and remember the countless hours spend in school and high school listening to Jean Michel Jarre or Vangelis I am grateful to Ben Lovett for taking me on this wonderful trip. He understands, only someone raised in that decade, with that music, could capture the sound so perfectly. I image how great it must be for him as well to be able to create something like this, music that can sit proudly next to those albums that marked his childhood. I listened to this score and remembered. I listened to this score and dreamed. I listened to this score and imagined. I listened to this score and felt at peace drifting in my favorite place. I don’t need more from a composition. 2016 has an early star. Do not miss this ode to 80s Sci-fi.
“Likely to be a future classic… Ben Lovett’s sophisticated electronic score is a brooding, glacial synth masterpiece and one of the best scores of 2016.”
“The narrative is given a big boost by the Ben Lovett’s synth-laden score that recalls the iconic Vangelis music of Blade Runner.” 
“Ben Lovett's Moog-played score recalls Vangelis without aping him.”
“Ben Lovett's soundtrack for this film is nothing short of WONDERFUL. If you the sound of early electronic artists from the 1970s and 1980s, you'll find a lot to appreciate here... stunning voyages into the world of instrumental electronics composed by a guy who obviously knows what he's doing.”

Bjorn Lynne - Worms 2 Game Soundtrack

Artist: Bjorn Lynne
P: 1997
This is the soundtrack for the computer game Worms 2. Lynne plays a lot of nice, friendly melodic tunes around each level of the game.
Despite the humorous nature of the game, this funky game soundtrack is not a joke. The tracks are a mix of synth-rock, funky electronica, rock, orchestral etc. Don't let the humorous track titles fool you; this is Bjorn Lynne appearing as his old "Dr.Awesome" self and doing some kickin' groovy tracks.
The CD also includes the original version of the cult hit "Wormsong" featuring the story of the game, with the worms singing on the chorus.
Tracks 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 are otherwise unreleased bonus tracks.

Brian Eno - Apollo: Atmospheres + Soundtracks

Artist: Brian Eno
P: 1983
If you ever wondered what ambient music is all about, you could do worse than listen to the soundtrack by Brian Eno that accompanied the stunning visuals of NASA's Apollo missions to the moon. Created with an intoxicating mixture of acoustic and electronic, the music makes the now-classic space travel images more magical and memorable, introducing a dreamlike element to scenes of cold reality. "An Ending (Ascent)" is about as close to an actual tune as you'll get, but, as with every track, a shining example of what ambient music reveals about itself--slowly and carefully.
If you've ever wanted to experience weightlesness, buy this recording. It is truly atmospheric, elegant, and downright beautiful. There are also some rather frightening moments (I think)contined in "Matta" which is worthy of the best sci-fi soundtracks. The ultimate piece on this CD is "An Ending (Ascent)". It is simply one of the most breathtakingly beautiful "songs" I have ever heard. The first time I heard it, I knew I wanted to become a musician. It's simplicity and aching beauty is something I've tried to recreate in my music, but haven't quite topped this. I've listened to this piece I would estimate in the thousands of times, and it still takes my breath away.

Christopher Franke - Babylon 5

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1995

This CD is the first in the series, containing material from the 1994-1995 episodes. Fortunately, the album is not a mere compilation of "Babylon 5" tracks, most of which are very short. It's a fused fugue, and Franke spent much time recreating the atmosphere in a consistent manner, without unnecessary interruptions which once haunted his 1992 soundtrack release, "Universal Soldier". Therefore all five "compilation" albums from this series serve as standalone CDs, which can be listened to at will.

The mood and atmosphere of the "Babylon 5" CDs has slightly evolved over time, with the first album (the only one without a useful subtitle) being the most differentiated and most interesting.

Christopher Franke - Babylon 5 The River of Souls

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1999
The River of Souls, Chris Franke's final B5 soundtrack, mixes everything from keyboards and orchestra to vocal chant and exotic instruments. The end result is a score which sounds more like it came from a major motion picture, rather than a cable TV movie. Franke has borrowed very little from his earlier B5 scores for The River of Souls, and the samples he has re-used are often very subtle and blend in well with the newer material. The River of Souls bears a passing resemblance to some of Franke's fifth season B5 work, but otherwise it's completely different in style and overall feel. In the shorter cues, like "Scissorhands" and "Rage Unleashed", Franke seems more interested in making noise than actual music, but the longer cues such as "The Lost Souls of Ralga", "'You Made a Mistake.'", and "Soul Hunter's Sacrifice" show Franke at his musical best, and are what make this CD worth buying. It's hard to tell whether The River of Souls reaches the incredible emotional impact of Endgame or In The Beginning since it approaches the listener from a completely different musical perspective, but I do have to rank it as one of Franke's better works.

Christopher Franke - Babylon 5 Vol. 2 Messages from Earth

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1997
The most fantastic thing about Babylon 5 is its epic scope. The show was already planned out, and then some, for its five year run (and multiple TV movies) and though the 5th year music is somewhat missing on this CD (the final track, Voices of Authority, foreshadows the future opening title theme of Season 5), this collection of 8 tracks provides the listener with a musical explanation of the series. The 1st track, Main Title 1st Season (extended), gives us a sense of adventure; the first steps into a journey that will take us amazing places. It gives us the feeling of alien voices calling out from far away with its synthesized voices...but it also has a powerful "hero" tune giving Babylon 5 a heroic nature (that would be returned in Track 7) The second track, Messages From Earth, gives us clips from the episodes where Sheridan takes control and beats out the rebels going against him and Babylon 5. It has sounds of "oh no, we are gonna blow up" and then redemption music to close the track out confirming victory for the Babylon 5 heroes. The Main Title for the second season (Track 3) is mysterious...giving us a hint that "shadows" (no pun intended) will eventually show their face. The fourth track, Z'Ha'Dum is violent and bombastic, much like the violent turmoil that happens in the third season. The third season has many up and downs and the tone makes sense. The fifth track carries on Z'Ha'Dum's theme with very loud drum blasts and violent tones. The sixth track is the most haunting, starting out very slow and then pumping with energy and then ending with a creepy, what seems like, electronic piano, emphasizing the journey is far from over. It is by far the most beautiful on the CD and haunting. The wild guitars, strange clangs, and odd sounds are just a few of the sounds on this track. The seventh track, the Main Title for the 4th season, is both upbeat and disastrous (in tone, not composition...it is brilliantly composed) making us feel the triumph of Babylon 5 of President Clark and the loss of friends and gain of power. It is a great way to represent the sad and joyous 4th year. The final track foreshadows the 5th Season Main Title theme that would come after this soundtrack was produced. It is perhaps the second best track, being epic in scale (the first few minutes are amazing) and its abrupt ending making you want more...just like the show. Fortunately the 5th season was just around the corner. Christopher Franke, formerly of Tangerine Dream provides synthesized beauty, rocking beats, and epic tones and no one better would fit the same themes Babylon 5, the show, represented in story and character.

Christopher Franke - New Music for Films Vol. 1

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1993

Having left Tangerine Dream in summer of 1987, Christopher Franke emigrated to America, where he settled in California, hoping to start a new career from scratch - a career of scoring motion pictures. As he admits in interviews, he needed a long break from the industry he lived in, as that was what Tangerine Dream was in the mid-80s. After more than a year, he signed up for several movies, and started to think of recording the soundtracks. To this end, he explored an idea he was toying with in the old times of Tangerine Dream, namely with orchestration of electronic music. Back in late 1986, the band released "Near Dark", a dark album with simulated orchestral sounds. In 1989, Franke decided to continue in that fashion, and he did. Instead of simply augmenting the texture of electronic music, he decided to make an additional move - to marry electronica with real orchestra. To this end, he founded Berlim Symphonic Film Orchestra, for which he composed music using real notes on sophisticated musical software.
The results exceeded all expectations. In 1989 and 1990, Franke scored three movies ("Eye of the Storm", "McBain" and "She Woke Up"), the music from which appeared on a compilation CD in 1993, issued by his own musical label, Sonic Images. This album, somewhat awkwardly entitled "New Music for Films Vol.1" is much like a set of bridges thrown between "Near Dark" as a symbol of electronic orchestration, the real acoustic classical orchestra, and pure ambient sound. Even if this music was not available until later, some limited edition promo singles were released much sooner than 1993, when Franke was already in full swing of his career. In addition, in 1989 he re-composed and re-recorded one of his old compositions, which was often used in Tangerine Dream gigs. His first official solo track, 'Vermillion Sands', was published in 1989 on a KLEM compilation CD, along with his old employer's Tangerine Dream's tune. The latter didn't stand up to comparison. 'Vermillion Sands' was superb, dynamic, arrpegiated and extremely sophisticated, a move forward, whereas the forgettable track of Tangerine Dream was like a throwaway hopeless track refused for publication during "Lily on the Beach" or "Destination Berlin" sessions. In 1989, we already knew that their paths diverged, and wondered what happened to Chris. With KLEM's compilation, I was happy again.
"New Music for Films Vol.1" is a very interesting CD, I dare claim a masterpiece, considering the high ambitions the composer had. It's of the highest class possible, comparable to the best music of Ennio Morricone, Jerry Goldsmith, and all other classical composers who work for the film industry. If you are fond of the old days, if the movies like "Lawrence of Arabia" or other ones with Paul Newman, Orson Welles, Rita Heyworth are to your taste, then you should reach for this CD, whether or not you like Tangerine Dream or Franke himself. This music is universal, beautiful and touching. It's timeless. Just about an hour long, this album is very eclectic, since it contains numerous experiments with sound, from piano, electric piano, delicate electronica (later to be developed to perfection on "Pacific Coast Highway"), horns and oboes, to full-fledged orchestra, with violins, contra-bass, cellos, gongs - oh my, it's the audiophiliac's feast! The atmosphere of this music is sometimes so grave and scary, that I have cold sweat on my spine. Other times it is lyrical, with solitary violin or cello, or piano - jerking tears out of your eyes.
"New Music for Films Vol.1" is one of the best albums of Christopher Franke, and a must in the collection of anyone who loves high quality music, and/or who is very fond of soundtracks.

Christopher Franke - New Music for Films Vol. 2

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 2000
In his ongoing anthology series of film and TV work, Christopher Franke delves into Solo, Tarzan and The Lost City, The Inheritance, Pacific Blue and Terror In The Mall for the 16 tracks that clock 47:38.
With the Berlin Symphonic Film Orchestra, Franke weaves an intriguing soundscape that provides a "concert" experience; the music flows through the well-crafted traditional and contemporary orchestrations. Though casual progressive rock fans will probably only know Franke through his work with Tangerine Dream, this release is a solid way to appreciate his solo artistry.

Christopher Franke - Perry Rhodan Pax Terra

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1996

In late 1996 the album Perry Rhodan - Pax Terra was released, featuring a number of compositions based on the Perry Rhodan book series -- a musical hommage to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this German science fiction series that is issued week for week since 1961. With the exception of some vocal parts, sung by Rick Jude and Miko, most of the album is instrumental, stylistically somewhat similar to the material Chris Franke composed for the Babylon 5 series during the same time -- in fact, Perry Rhodan - Pax Terra could easily be the soundtrack to an unproduced movie.

Christopher Franke - Raven

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1993

In 1993 Christopher Franke scored an excellent soundtrack for the film "Raven", a soundtrack which is symptomatic of his earlier and later work, and which in fact constitutes a representative work of this composer. If you would like to have an overview of qualities Franke's music has to offer, you will do exceptionally well with "Raven" rather than a compilation.

Christopher Franke - The Celestine Prophecy

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1996
Taken as inspiration from a novel by someone named James Redfield, "Celestine Prophecy" is a very exotic album and much more sophisticated than his earlier solo works although it took a lot longer to get into. Some of these pieces have a sort of progressive nature to them due to the morphing changes in melody that make them almost like several songs in one. The opening track is an example which starts with a dramatic, almost serious tone with Central American drums, a frantic rhythm before gradually slowing down at first before becoming a beautiful, peaceful track of almost a totally different mood altogether in the last two-thirds. While the Redfield book itself is not really necessary to read in order to appreciate this music, a familiarity with the book will enhance one's listening experience. You can listen to this music hundreds of times, and not get tired of it. It is truly inspired. It's not only Franke's best work, but it is also one of the best new age albums ever released. Don't deny yourself the experience of this great spiritual journey.

This is the Priority Label version!

Christopher Franke - Universal Soldier

Artist: Christopher Franke
P: 1992

"Universal Soldier" is the first full-fledged soundtrack release of Christopher Franke, dating from 1992. Chronologically though, "New Music for Films Vol.1" should be considered first, since it contains film music material from 1989-1990. Universal Soldier continues the darker moods explored on "New Music for Films", with a very heavy orchestral texture. Being a score for an action flick with Claude van Damme, the movie with enormous emphasis on suspense, this album delivers what is expected. Hard to listen to at moments, it does not constitute a significant item in Franke's musical heritage, but still, for those who like electronica and orchestra playing together, it is worth having in a CD collection. The album starts with 'Vietnam Jungle', a blast of orchestral forte, to set the mood for the whole album. 'The Explosion' is a short number taking us back to 1990's "New Music for Films" collection. 'Unisols on Fire' is a dark cantata with a sophisticated orchestral rhythm, hinting at Franke's penchant for compositional complexity, which will be displayed in full form and class in "Babylon 5" series of 1995-2000. It's also interesting to note that the symphonic passages from 'Unisols on Fire' constitute the starting point for 1995's soundtrack of Christopher Franke, "Night of the Running Man". 'McGregor' is a miniature, which might be just as well recorded by Preisner, if it occurred to him to use full orchestra. The track is quite scary, with a more than usual element of chaos thrown in. 'Grand Canyon' continues the mood, which progressively turns to be more and more avantgarde. The tracks, 'I'm Already Dead' and 'Going Home' are slightly lighter mood-breaks, adjusted to the slower scenes from the film, but only just a tad lighter. Increasingly chaotic avant-garde compositions 'The Fight' and 'Back From Dead' must have provided an excellent background for breath-taking scenes from the movie, but as standalone compositions they are quite leaded, requiring maximum concentration from the listener. The remaining tracks continue to deliver the variations on a theme. In fact, it's hard to distinguish one from another. It's best to think of "Universal Soldier" as one long suite, broken into pieces for the filmmaking purposes.

Edgar Rothermich - Blade Runner

Artist: Edgar Rothermich
P: 2012 / 2014

If Edgar Rothermich is indeed a replicant of Vangelis, then his DNA is only one generation away from the source here. Having collaborated with Tangerine Dream member Christopher Franke, Rothermich certainly has the 80′s synth chops to astoundingly recreate “Blade Runner”‘s score from ear alone. Seemingly performed on the original computer banks that “Blade Runner” magically sprang from in Vangelis’ “electronic laboratory,” Rothermich’s gear is perfectly attuned.
Rothermich’s attention to detail is so fastidious that we even get the piano-tapping cue “Deckard’s Dream,” complete with the sound of passing flying cars at its start, and the voices of the Unicorn that marked him as artificial life.
