He’s back! after completely re-scoring the original Tron back in 2011 Mogi Grumbles has finished his whole re-score of Escape From New York, below is the movie re-cut and above is the album, enjoy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I Heard You Were Dead is an original re-score of the movie Escape from New York (1981), composed by Mogi Grumbles, musical alias of Ann Arbor, MI native Alex Taam. In 2011, Taam asked the question, “What if Daft Punk had composed the soundtrack to the original Tron, and not its sequel?” The answer was “End of Line.” Two years later, he turned his attention to John Carpenter’s cult classic, this time posing a much simpler question, “Why not?” After amassing a collection of synths authentic to the period, Taam was inspired to compose something that was both classic and modern. Operation Black Light is sleek and stealthy, propelled by a bassline that whirs like a Blackhawk helicopter blade. Mac 10 is the sound of bombast, a grenade that’s just gone off with shrapnel bouncing everywhere. This re-cut of the film, by editor Christian Silbereis features the Mogi Grumbles re-score.
