Cluster - Grosses Wasser (1979)

 Grosses Wasser is the seventh album by the electronic music outfit Cluster. It was co-produced by former Tangerine Dream member Peter Baumann. Grosses Wasser marked the return to Cluster working as a duo of Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius after two albums collaborating with Brian Eno.

Grosses Wasser was recorded and released in 1979 on the Hamburg, Germany based Sky label. It featured a wide variety of styles, including some of the most avant-garde material created by Moebius and Roedelius since the demise of Kluster with Conrad Schnitzler's departure in 1971, particularly during the middle section of the title track, which occupied all of side 2. Other tracks, including "Manchmal" and both the opening and closing sections of "Grosses Wasser" continued the gentle, melodic style of the previous three albums, while others echoed the rhythmic style of Zuckerzeit, albeit with more of an edge. Steven and Alan Freeman, writing in their book The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, describe the title track, in part, as "...a lengthy suite growing out of silence with atmospheric Florian Fricke-like sustained piano tones, via bizarre crackling electronics onto almost tribal-industrial rock percussives."

John Carpenter - The Fog (Silva screen-extended edition, flac format) - 1980

The Fog is a 1980 horror film directed by John Carpenter. It stars Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins, and Janet Leigh. It tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps in over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck there exactly 100 years earlier.
The Fog was Carpenter's first theatrical film after the success of his 1978 horror Halloween, which also starred Jamie Lee Curtis. Though not as big a success as Halloween, the film received some good reviews and was also a commercial success. A remake of the film was made in 2005.
The soundtrack was written with a Moog modular IIIP comprising of 5-9 box units incl. double sequencer complement, an acoustic piano, and a prophet 5 rev.2 (for some of the fx).
Enjoy in flac format and in two parts:

John Carpenter - Assault On Precinct 13 (Extended score, flac format) - 1976

Assault On Precinct 13 is a 1976 American action thriller film written, directed, scored and edited by John Carpenter. It stars Austin Stoker as a police officer who defends a defunct precinct against an attack by a relentless criminal gang, along with Darwin Joston as a convicted murderer who helps him. Laurie Zimmer and Tony Burton co-star as other defenders of the precinct.

Writer/director Carpenter was approached by J. Stein Kaplan to make a low-budget exploitation film for under $100,000 but with total creative control. Carpenter wrote The Anderson Alamo, inspired by the Howard Hawks Western film Rio Bravo and the George A. Romero horror film Night of the Living Dead. Shot in winter of 1975, production went smoothly and finished on time and on budget. Despite controversy with the MPAA over the explicitly violent and infamous "ice cream" scene, the film received an R rating and opened in the United States on November 10, 1976.
The soundtrack was written by John Carpenter assisted by Dan Wyman, at Sound Arts studio in L.A. It was done with very old technology and completed in about three days. Most of the sounds came from a large Moog Modular synthesizer called "Series III Moog" or "Moog 55". There is also a track with an electric piano (maybe a fender rhodes).
Despite the huge influence it had on many electronic musicians around the world, the film's score remained available only in bootleg form until 2003 when it was given an official release through the French label, Record Makers.
Enjoy the extended version in flac format here!!
