Howard Shore Score to 1996 David Cronenberg Film Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Mondo is proud to present the third installment in their Cronenberg/Shore summer trilogy: the 20th anniversary release of Howard Shore's score to David Cronenberg's 1996 psychological thriller Crash. Crash is an utterly audacious piece of work from Shore – using 6 electric guitars, 3 orchestral harps, 3 woodwinds and 2 percussionists. Shore crafts a meticulous sonic landscape.
Based on the novel by J.G. Ballard, Crash deftly explores the complex interpersonal relationships of a select few, who find themselves colliding head-on with the world of car-crash fetishism. Crash is the first Cronenberg film to premiere at Cannes. John Bender wrote "Shore's calculated instrumentation, mostly electronically manipulated guitars, harps and percussion, give Crash a cold and burnished metallic sound." The perfect companion to an uncompromising filmmaker like Cronenberg.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of this complex film, Mondo and Howe Records are pleased to present Howard Shore's score for Crash for the first time ever on vinyl, with original artwork by Rich Kelly.
