SOUNDTRACK, HOWARD SHORE - Dead Ringers (Vinyl) (LP)

Mondo is proud to present the premiere Vinyl release of a true classic of 1980's thriller scoring, Howard Shore's soundtrack for David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers.
The Film tells the story of Elliot and Beverly Mantle, identical twins who operate a fertility clinic that provides for their twisted relationship; Elliot seduces patients then passes them onto the less confident Beverly, but their world is literally split when Beverly falls in love with one of them embarks on a self-destructive journey of obsession and drug addiction. Its classic Cronenberg, and when you get that you also get classic Shore.

Shore's score is deceptive at first, with a main title orchestrated for 50 strings and 3 french horns to create a beautiful yet mysterious atmosphere. He continues with this palette, adding a single oboe to echo the 3 horns' opening theme, an underscores both relationships with a sense of subtlety and melodrama. However, Shore constantly uses the string orchestra to represent the sinister, pervading through the otherwise normalcy. It's typical subversion from Shore and Cronenberg, and approaches the operatic tones a more mainstream audience are used to from the composer. But things happening under the surface is what Dead Ringers is all about - and why its such an enduring classic in score and picture.

Features exclusive artwork - different to the Mondo webstore release.
