Condemned spins its blood-curdling yarns without the infrastructure of guitar — the earthy, grounded bulwark from which both the elder Robertson and Davies based their twin Hall of Fame careers. Instead, these roiling themes were created with a combination of synthesizers both old and new. That mixing and matching keeps the project from sounding retro, but also not exactly of this time and place either. – Something Else!
Daniel Davies and Sebastian Robertson’s score for horror flick, Condemned is now available on Spotify.

This remarkable score, which Robertson wrote with longtime friend, Daniel Davies, brilliantly augments and animates Eli Morgan Gesner’s truly grisly movie… Featuring everything from burbling, foreboding mood music, to ‘House’ to Cool Jazz, it’s chockfull of both beauty and dread-just like the film.
Lakeshore Records is very pleased to release Condemned (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), featuring score by Daniel Davies & Sebastian Robertson (John Carpenter’s “Lost Themes”). Daniel Davies (whose father is Dave Davies of The Kinks) and Sebastian Robertson (whose father is Robbie Robertson of The Band) worked together recently on the Lakeshore Records release, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. “However, the styles of music associated with these lock legend fathers are in no way present on the soundtrack. Davies & Robertson (juniors) pride themselves in having used a selection of retro synthesisers as the core instrumentation for this soundtrack.”(Blueprint: Review)

“In addition to Condemned, Davies and Robertson have also composed the theme for J.J. Abrams #1 CBS series Zooas well as additional music for the Martin Scorsese film Silence, and contributed songs to the soundtrack of Gaspar Noe’s Love.” – Cut.Print.Film
Hear the exclusive preview of Condemned (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on Cut.Print.Film! The score by Daniel Davies & Sebastian Robertson features “ambience and tension” created by “running an old Korg synth through a defective speaker to get just the right groan and crackle,” says Robertson. “A lot of this score was about finding synths with frequencies so low they could alert the underworld.”
Caliber Media presents CONDEMNED in theaters on Friday, November 13 (find a theater).

The synths are glorious and mind bending. I love it. Then just as I was getting into the groove of things, a little cue called ‘Johnny’s Jazz’ comes along and turns things on its head. It’s like the cue says a jazz cue and it’s featuring Cody Carpenter. I don’t mind. I love jazz and I love this cue.” – Soundtrack Geek
