Τα σάουντρακ του John Carpenter, γραμμένα από τον ίδιο με “πρωτοποριακή” για την εποχή χρήση ηλεκτρονικών, μαρτυρούν μια προσωπική σχέση του με τη μουσική. Αν και τεχνικά ανεπαρκής, παράγει αποτελέσματα που κυμαίνονται από το “λίαν λειτουργικό” μέχρι το “εντυπωσιακό”.
Στη δεύτερη κατηγορία υπάγεται το θέμα του horror classic ‘Halloween’ – δυστυχώς αυτό δεν αφορά το σύνολο του OST, προσκολλημένο σε ένα στείρο μουσικά, “be very afraid” concept.

John Carpenter‘s soundtracks, written by himself with the use of electronics, testify to a personal approach to music. Technically insufficient though he might be, he manages to produce results ranging from “pretty functional” to “impressive”.
The title theme of the horror classic ‘Halloween’ belongs to the last category – unfortunately this does not apply to the entire OST, stuck on a musically sterile, “be very afraid” concept.



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

  1. I discussed this movie with my son-in-law just yesterday. I’ve never seen it and he thought it would be a good option for Halloween evening. He wanted to see it again. I absolutely think it’s too much for me. But it is a classic!

Happy to hear your thoughts
