Across a 40 year career the veteran director and composer has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work, his synths and stabs summoning terror and exhilaration in equal measure.

With ‘Lost Themes’ he’s improvising, morphing from doomy harbingers to Vangelis dreamscapes, the shredding chords and soaring organs recalling his best work whilst also standing alone as a thrillingly frightening experience – a horror movie wrought through sound alone. “would fit right in with the scores from Halloween and Escape from New York” – the verge, “the gloomy industrial tremors convincingly recall Carpenter’s landmark chillers”  7/10 – uncut, “the ultimate in late night headphone experiences, whichever decade you’re in” 4/5 – the skinny
