Acclaimed producer / composer Ben Frost has announced details of the vinyl release of his recent soundtrack work for Catastrophic Deliquescence (Music from Fortitude 2015-2018) and Dark: Cycle 1 and Dark: Cycle 2 (Original Music from the Netflix Original Series).
Catastrophic Deliquescence is a collection of Frost’s work for Sky Atlantic’s Fortitude series, available on vinyl for the first time with brand new artwork via Mute. Over three seasons, Frost’s glacial compositions accompanied the critically acclaimed crime drama and this collection of work stands up as a release in its own right, entirely separate to the series. Frost has said “Only a few short years later it’s easy to forget how revolutionary Fortitude was when it first appeared – A head on collision of real-world science and environmental horror. The multi-national cast and a cacophony of accents and ideas. And it was a punch in the fucking face. And I am so proud to have been a small part of it.”
Dark: Cycle 1 and Dark: Cycle 2 are both released on CD and vinyl via Invada Records / Lakeshore Records (our review of Cycle 1 can be found here). On these soundtracks Ben Frost’s dynamic and ominous orchestrations provide a striking backdrop to the surreal German supernatural thriller, Dark, elevating the score to the status of a cast member. Says Frost: “Working in this strange and beautiful world of light and shadow has been a gift and an endless source of inspiration”.
All releases will be available from the 22nd November.
