haunting and beautiful, the three composers combine dark, quirky, Lo-Fi synthesiser music with masterful, classical compositions.

The score displays the dynamic ability and range of the composers, striking a perfect balance of beauty, horror, joy and dissonance. both minimalist and hauntingly atmospheric at its core, and yet remarkably complex at the same time, A wide variety of instruments and sound effects are used throughout. focusing on the topic of suicide, Daktari Lorenz, Hermann Kopp & John Boy Walton make up the holy trio of composers called upon to tackle such dense, morose subject matter, and boy do they deliver. This contains the original soundtrack (released back in 1990 as a limited 7”EP) and unreleased material sourced from recently discovered tapes.
