On February 3rd, legendary horror director and composer John Carpenter will release Lost Themes, a collection of unreleased compositions selected from his 40-plus-year film career. Already the Halloween mastermind has shared an ominous piano ballad called “Vortex“. Now, he unleashes more terror with “Night”.
Here, Carpenter shows off much more of a new wave aesthetic to his brand of spooky sounds, with this slow, fluttering synth and brief pops of robotic bass serving as the focus of an especially menacing soundscape. You might expect to hear this extra chilling score as the axe-wielding psycho searches the arboretum for fresh victims. Listen in below.
