Finders Keepers Records presents Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski's previously unreleased electro/orchestral/experimental score for Andrzej Zulawski's surrealist 80s horror classic, Possession. Check!
These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film less than half of them made it on to the actual directors cut - leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynskis studio.
The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynskis career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into to synth driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomise the well honed techniques used in previous Zulawski scores, such as Third Part Of The Night and The Devil, which rely on his inimitable
orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar.
This is the first time any of this music has been released outside of the films original context. The important restoration of Korzynski's music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden
era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof Komeda, Jan Hammer and Zdenek Liska - not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers, such as Roubaix, Vannier and Nicolai. [info from Label]
