CORY STRAND "RIVER'S EDGE: A REINTERPRETATION" 4CDr (AOW 36)
The soundtrack to the film, made up almost entirely of classic 1980's thrash metal and hardcore punk, helped reinforce the themes of a distinct negativity at work in the universe and became as much a character as any of the teens themselves.
I have attempted to preserve the severe feelings of banality that I feel define "River's Edge" in my approach to the soundtrack. Almost every piece here was created by manipulating the source materials in exactly the same base manner; differentiations exist in the form of tonalities and structure. If a certain strain of HNW and ambient music is about illustrating emptiness, I feel my work here succeeds. There is an absence in these compositions that surprises me, and I am honored to share it with those interested in sound as oblivion.
Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $20 ppd. in the United States, $28 rest of world.
