One Way Static Records proudly presents: Clive Barker’s ‘CANDYMAN’ (Original 1992 Motion Picture Soundtrack by Philip Glass).
Clive Barker who wrote the story for Candyman is a multi talented artist, painter, director & producer. The extent of his work is endless. Spawning Nightbreed, Hellraiser, Lord Of Illusions and the Books Of Blood just to name a few.
Philip Glass (born in 1937) also needs no introduction. In the past 30 years he has composed more than twenty operas, eight symphonies and a multitude of concertos. Considered one of the most influential composers of the last century, Mr. Glass has had renowned collaborations with artists ranging from Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen, Ravi Shankar, Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt to David Bowie.
Phillip Glass has written music for experimental theater and for Academy Award-winning motion pictures such as “The Hours” and Martin Scorsese’s “Kundun”, while “Koyaanisqatsi”, his initial filmic landscape with Godfrey Reggio and the Philip Glass Ensemble, may be the most radical and influential mating of sound and vision since “Fantasia”. Other compositions include “Hamburger Hill” & “The Truman Show”. Mr. Glass was nominated for and won several Golden Globes, Bafta & Academy Awards.
Today we present to you some of Glass’ best work, the eerie minimalistic soundtrack to Clive Barker’s ‘CANDYMAN’. This release is available as a color vinyl variant (Yellow/Black Swirl Vinyl) limited to 400 copies and also comes with an insert containing exclusive and extensive liner notes by author Clive Barker, composer Philip Glass, director Bernard Rose and actors Tony Todd, Ted Raimi & Xander Berkeley.
