CORY STRAND "PSYCHO: A REINTERPRETATION" 14CDR SET (AOW 324)
Massive drone/ANW rework of one of the most famous film scores in cinema history, Bernard Herrmann's masterful exercise in tension and volatility - the score for Alfred Hitchcock's legendary Psycho. I'm not going to waste space writing about the film-i'm guessing anyone with a passing interest in my work understands Psycho's influence and place in the Western Canon of cinema. I've studied Psycho pretty intensely in my academic career, and it's a joy to finally be able to cut loose with it and view it through a different prism. My rework is 14 discs of crushing ambient/ANW-style power drone, meant to evoke the grey areas of Norman Bates' fractured psyche. Intensely orchestral scores always translate really well into drone and noise, and this one is no exception. If you've enjoyed my work with other Hitch scores, then this will be right up your alley.
Packaged as 14 separate albums, each in their own DVD case with their own artwork utilizing images from and ephemera associated with the film. Released in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $130 ppd. in the United States, $143 rest of world.
