HALT AND CATCH FIRE, VOLUME 2
First time on vinyl, limited edition die cut ‘ COMET’ Slipcase. Limited to 1000 copies only.
“Appropriately synth heavy drawing on his past contributions to Tangerine Dream” – The Vinyl Factory
“An incredibly sexy, high-octane drama about all of the genius and ego behind the (‘ 80s) tech boom that changed the world.” – Paste
“Intelligent eighties drama… essentially Mad Men for techno-geeks.” – Telegraph.
A second volume of music from the hugely successful Halt And Catch Fire TV series. Created by former Tangerine Dream member Paul Haslinger, the soundtrack is an evocative backdrop to the award-winning tech-based series. With a nod to John Carpenter at his dramatic finest and Pink Floyd circa ‘ Atom Heart Mother’ , an electronic soundscape that’ s Bladerunner-esque ambience is dotted with aching melancholy. Haslinger’ s music underscores a show at the very cutting edge of box set mania.

“A brilliant take on Star Trek homages, gaming and toxic geekery” – The Guardian
Taken from the first show of the show’s fourth season, it’s the ‘ Star Trek’ episode when a gifted programmer becomes frustrated with his job and creates digital clones of his co-workers for his own dark adventures in space. Daniel Pemberton, the Ivor Novello award winning, Golden Globe award and multi BAFTA nominated and acclaimed composer shifts effortlessly between symphonic and electronic instrumentation.
“A brutal Star Trek scenario that’ s half comedy, half indictment of Silicon Valley leadership” – The Verge
“One of Hollywood’ s most sought-after composers” – Screen Daily
