Any horror film is instantly elevated the second Joseph Bishara comes on board, and the man behind the music for Insidious and The Conjuring is back with the score for Orion and director Nicholas McCarthy’s The Prodigy, now in theaters. If you see the movie and you dig Bishara’s score (you should and you will), you can now grab it on Vinyl from Waxwork!
“The haunting soundtrack by Joseph Bishara is an expert composition of dark orchestral scoring focusing on heavy string arrangements, clarinet, and horns reminiscent of classic 1970’s horror soundtracks. The orchestration is blended with emotive electronic soundscapes. Bishara’s tense strings, coupled with droning electronic rhythms and piano, sets the dark tone and effectively captures impending doom and tragedy.”
Waxwork Records worked directly with Orion Pictures and Bishara to create a deluxe vinyl release of the soundtrack featuring UV reactive 180 gram “Blue Iris” colored vinyl, new art by Adam Rabalais, a printed insert, old style tip-on gatefold jackets and high quality LP packaging.
It was Waxwork’s aim to create a vinyl record that could appear ‘possessed,’ and by using UV reactive compounds, the record emits an eerie, glowing splatter effect when exposed to a black light. The unique result is a stunning vinyl record, both sonically and visually. Much like the character Miles, the vinyl soundtrack itself is hiding something sinister in plain sight.
