Patrick Nettesheim Coven (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on LP
Soundtrack to the Legendary 1997 Short Horror Film by Mark Borchardt
Forever Midnight is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack album to Coven – the legendary 1997 short horror film by Mark Borchardt. Patrick Nettesheim's score is a brooding assortment of dreamlike synths, overdriven guitars, pounding drums and wailing choirs, all run through a charming and creepy home-recorded filter.
From the opening, ominous bending bass hits to the final slow-dancing pianos, this thoughtful soundtrack conjures images of dilapidated scarecrows, haunted drive-ins and black-robed fiends – a perfect compliment to Coven's stark black and white imagery and harrowing themes.
Borchardt's Coven and its trialed completion are well known as the subject of the award-winning 1999 documentary American Movie, but it stands on its own as a unique artistic achievement – successful as both a strong, beautiful work from Borchardt's storied life in film and as a symbol of the triumph of creativity and drive in the shadow of adverse fortune.
