John Carpenter details 'Lost Themes' compilation

Earlier this year, we found out that a collection of kerbed film scores composed by filmmaker John Carpenter would be released in the near future, and we now have some more details about the compilation.

Titled 'Lost Themes', the collection will include nine unused soundtracks written for his films, which the track 'Vortex' being unveiled.

“Lost Themes was all about having fun,” Carpenter says in a statement. “It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I’m used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they’re supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It’s just fun.”

“Both classical music and rock and roll are part of my musical language, which is riff-driven,” he continues. “So if you listen carefully, I’m sure you can hear some echoes from my past. But I’m sure that’s true of any composer. You just bring your music along with you.”

No exact release date has been added yet, but you can stream 'Vortex' and see the full tracklisting below.
