John Carpenter, the Legendary Director and Composer behind Halloween, Escape From New York, They Live, Assault on Precinct 13 and many more announces his debut solo album √îLost Themes√ï out February 3rd on Sacred Bones Records. In anticipation of his debut release, Carpenter shares a new track √íVortex,√ì a custom-designed video for √íVortex√ì set to clips from different Carpenter films and the full album artwork and track list.John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre√ïs most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he√ïs both directed and scored. The themes that drive them can be stripped to a few coldly repeating notes, take on the electrifying thunder of a rock concert, or submerge themselves into exotic, unholy miasmas. It√ïs work that instantly floods his fans√ï musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, lightning-fisted kung fufighters, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell. Lost Themes asks Carpenter√ïs acolytes to visualize their own nightmares.
