“[‘The Rise of the Synths Redux’] has the air of an ode to the work of the film’s narrator, but it also has Ogden’s Berlin School-esque finger prints all over it. This is by design. – Vehlinggo
“The suspense-laden cinematic moodiness of the Carpenter-esque and giallo-colored new cut [‘Rebel Instinct’]” – Destroy//Exist
Lakeshore Records has released The Rise of the Synths (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), available now digitally worldwide! The album features the documentary’s score by OGRE Sound (Robin Ogden). If this album sounds familiar, Lakeshore previously released the Official Companion Album, which featured tracks by some of the synthwave and retrowave scene’s most recognizable names. See below for the score’s listening links and more.
Directed by Ivan Castell, the documentary is a “fascinating, witty trip through time” (Slash Film); and by the way, it’s narrated by John Carpenter, who is the inspiration behind the music of so many bands featured in the film and beyond.
The DVD/Blu-ray is on sale now at The Rise of the Synths online.
