Squid lovers celebrate! Soundtrack music from first three Trancers movies featuring Tim Thomerson as futuristic gumshoe Jack Deth are at last available on 2-CD set! Popular time travel series from Charles Band also featured Helen Hunt, Art La Fleur, Michael Stefani, Anne Seymour. Charles Band directs (I & II), C. Courtney Joyner directs (III). Flavorful synthesizer scores by Mark Ryder, Tim Davies (I & II) and Richard Band (III) add immeasurably to never-ending appeal. Musical themes are highly melodic, action ideas are rhythmically charged, atmospheric material is inventiveÉ with everything supported by unusually tonal, attractive harmonic vernacular. Memorable! First score by Ryder & Davies establishes major themes and motifs, second score reworks many of them, third score uses them as launchpad for aggressive new material by Richard Band. Minor keys play important role throughout, underlining overall melancholy feel of both quasi-film noir plot and saddened love story at heart. Even action sequences are anchored by strong melodies above, minor-keyed harmonies below. While main theme gets center stage, especially in beautiful end title treatments, every melody has moments in the spotlight. Results are unusually strong, accessible sci-fi scoring! In third and longest score, Band gives equal time to original themes, new material. His own contributions add vivid contrast to initial moods by bringing in gritty intensity that reflects much grimmer storyline. The future isn't pretty! All three scores are presented in stereo from 1/2" three-channel masters vaulted in pristine condition. Richard Band supervises production, Daniel Schweiger writes detailed notes, Joe Sikoryak & Kay Marshall offer attractive booklet with Flipper-style cover art. Choose your favorite! Mark Ryder, Tim Davies, Richard Band compose and perform, Richard Band produces, supervises.
