CORY STRAND "THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD: A REINTERPRETATION" 38CDR + DVD-R SET (AOW 311)
In working with the score, I've applied the same sort of techniques as were utilized during my rework of Neil Young's Dead Man score; this set is a relative to that one in terms of structure, more an art object honoring the film than a straight musical object. Sonically it references Tim Hecker and Troum in the ambient sections and My Bloody Valentine in the noise/HNW sections. All told, the set contains roughly 7 hours of music.
This set includes the score reworked in ambient mode across 19 discs, the score reworked in HNW/noise mode across 19 discs, and an HNW "Totality" recording of the entire film's audio track (almost three hours.) Packaged in 19 double-DVD cases (the score) and a single DVD case (the 'Totality" recording), each with their own unique artwork using images from and ephemera associated with the film. As said, this is one of my craziest, largest-scale projects, but I think the results are well worth it.
Released in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $200 ppd. in the United States, $213 rest of world.
