JOHN CARPENTER - Lost Themes [12" LP] SBR123LP
"Carpenter's scores blended experimental ideas with simple but solid melodies. Having limited skills as a musician, the director made innovative use of technology—mainly synthesizers and drum machines—to generate epic sounds on a thin budget. Most importantly, he allowed synthesizers to sound like synthesizers, rather than trying to pass them off as a budget orchestra. These warbly alien squiggles and pulsing bass tones imbued his melodies with a distinctively robotic touch."
