CORY STRAND "THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO: A REINTERPRETATION" 20 CDR + 2 DVD-R SET (AOW 308)
In working with the score, I've tried not to dilute it too much. The score is suffused with a distanced grandeur and dread; my rework capitalizes on that and takes it to a more extreme and sustained place. At times ominous, at other times achingly beautiful, but always dense and layered and full of endless cycling sounds.
As said, this set is epic; I haven't created something this substantial in a long while, and I am very proud of the results. The rework is composed of thirteen discs comprising the reworked score, three discs of long-form ambient/drone pieces constructed from various elements of the score, three discs of HNW pieces crafted from elements of the score, a single disc featuring a lengthy improvised synthesizer composition by me inspired by the film, and two DVD-Rs: one containing an HNW "Totality" reworking of the film's audio track, the other a "Ghost Ambient" version of the same. Each disc is packaged in its own DVD case with its own artwork, utilizing images and ephemera from the film. It's a thing of beauty when you see it all layed out together!
Released in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $200 ppd. in the United States, $213 rest of world.
