Part of what made this franchise so special was Charlie Clouser’s haunting, chilling and gripping music, a feast of atmospheric texture that I still listen to quite often; I am not even only talking about the iconic “Hello Zepp” main theme that keeps being reworked with every new instalment [sic] but about the entire soundscape. – Soundtrack Dreams
Charlie Clouser’s score to all eight films of the Saw film franchise (which includes the recently released Jigsaw film) will be released on glorious “Saw Blade Silver Vinyl Discs” in two volumes on March 16 via Lakeshore Records! “I re-booted, re-mixed, and re-combined my favorite cues in an attempt to feature a balanced selection of the best musical moments from all eight films,” says Charlie. The double vinyl sets will be available exclusively at FYE in the U.S. and through HMV in the UK on March 16. See more details now at Bloody Disgusting.
