Lovett’s score is one of the most compelling and nuanced I’ve heard in a long time; and it’s worthy of many repeat listens. – Vehlinggo
On the eve of Ben Lovett’s cassette release to his acclaimed Synchronicity film score, we take a look back at the film and addictive analog synth score. Jacob Gentry’s mind-bending ‘Sci-fi Noir’ in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca and Memento,stars an ensemble cast: Chad McKnight (The Signal, TV’s “ER”), Brianne Davis (Hulu’s “Casual”), Scott Poythress (Allegiant), A.J. Bowen (The Guest), and Turbo Kid’s Michael Ironside.
Consequently, the score is a “shameless love letter to Vangelis,” the composer of Blade Runner. However, the score became its own standalone work of art. You can’t think of Synchronicity without thinking about Ben’s infectious score. Ben’s work earned accolades from peers and critics alike, garnering him a Discovery of The Year Nomination at the World Soundtrack Awards. Certainly one of Lakeshore Records’ favorite releases of 2016, we are pleased to keep the love going through this cassette release via our friends at Megatapes.

This is without a doubt my first true love of 2016, a score that takes me back and on a journey through space and time. They don’t make scores like this anymore, seriously… – Soundtrack Geek

“The Signal director Jacob Gentry returns to screens with his new sci-fi film Synchronicity. And while Chad McKnight, AJ Bowen, and Michael Ironside may top the cast it seems immediately apparent that the fantastic retro score by Ben Lovett is every bit as much a character in the film… created with the support of Moog, there’s an obvious John Carpenter vibe.” – Twitch Film
