It was the project that almost killed Canadian animation house Nelvana. Rock and Rule, a sci fi rock and roll musical, came out in 1983, after a protracted development, only to flop at the box office. Besides the songs by Cheap Trick, Debbie Harry, Lou Reed with Iggy Pop, and Earth, WInd, and Fire, the incidental music was composed by Patricia Cullen.



Cullen, who composed music for other Nelvana projects such as The Care Bears and Ewoks, died in 1991.

Lots of modular and Carpenter/Goblin-inspired stuff in the Room 237 soundtrack.

Quite a nice score, especially the end theme. The last cue of the suite is the actual main title, strangely absent from the soundtrack album.
In fact, only 4 tracks from the film were included on the album. I have no idea where the rest of the album material comes from but posssibly
they're unused cues.
amazing thread. found a lot of good new music. been listening to soundtracks all night at work. coworker even asked me if i was on some type of helloween kick.

question of the deadly spawn soundtrack, the song spawn lake. would post a video but can't find one on youtube. you know the synths used on this track, or album? looking for the synth that is doing the growling bass and the main synth lead.

I did some research on composer Michael Perilstein but couldn't find any info on what synths he might have used on that soundtrack. The only way
to find out for sure would be to contact him.

How about some cool electronic dance cues from Buck Rogers in the 26th century.....

"Jelly Belly" & "Something Kinda Funky" (from the Movie/TV-series pilot- Music by Stu Phillips):



Ian Underwood or Michael Boddicker (both top-synthesist's) played on both of these tracks together with Stu Phillips.


"Andromeda" (from the TV-episode Space Rockers - Music by Johnny Harris):


Not sure whether Harris played on this cue or if he had help from some session players.

Just watched it a week ago - certainly some interesting views on what-could-be-but-probably-isn't with that movie! I definitely enjoyed the music - any idea who did it? I haven't looked it up yet...

William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes are credited with the score. I enjoyed it, too.
Lots of deep Moogy tones, and what sounds like old timey step-sequencing.

Here's a nice (but short) video on the making of the Room 237 soundtrack:



They apparently used lots of vintage stuff on the soundtrack (including what look like Synthesizer.com and MOTM modulars).

The intro sounds like a mix between Mile Oldfield's Tubular bell's and Fred Myrow and Malcolm Seagrave's Phantasm theme.

Thanks for posting the vid, Micke! :thumbsup:
At about :14 into the video, there's a shot of a DK Synergy with a sticker labeled "Carlos" on what appears to be a sound cart.

Hmmm.....

You're welcome Esus :)

I read that the score will be released on CD next week on the Death Waltz label. So far it's only been available
as a digital download.

Blimey! So many cool synthesizers that they even have an ElectroComp 500 as one of their monosynths! I don't think I've heard a 500 on a recording until this moment!

It sounds like great music, no matter what gear is being used.

Where exactly did you spot an EML 500?

Aside from the big Synthesizer.con/MOTM modular and polysynths I spotted an ARP Odyssey, Korg MS-20, Oberheim expander module (the new one with patch panel), Roland SH-101 and what may be a Yamaha CS-30 at 3:07 into the video. I don't see any EML synth though.
