CORY STRAND "THE VIRGIN SUICIDES: COMPLETE" 27CDR + DVD-R BOX SET (AOW 425)
My rework consists of ambient treatments of both Air's commissioned score and the actual soundtrack of the film. It is at times hollow, achingly gorgeous, despondent, yearning, empty, suffocating, and beautiful. Large, oceanic swathes of ambient sound to drown yourself in as you contemplate life's endless sadnesses (and they are endless.) All in all, it's nearly 25 hours of music spread over 27 discs, with a harsh noise "Totality" recording of the film's entire audio track on DVD-R completing the set.
Each of the 27 discs + the DVD-R are packaged in heavy fold-over covers housed in a clear plastic bags, utilizing my favorites images from, and ephemera associated with, the film. All of the screengrabs were done by me personally, from a blu-ray transfer of the film. Also includes an informational insert, again printed on heavy cardstock. The entire set is housed in a wooden box, which is hand-lettered by me (similar to Naughty's "My King" set from a few months ago). Released in a limited edition of 3 hand-numbered copies. $275 ppd. in the United States, $291 rest of world.
