Bryce Miller :: W A S P

Bryce MillerW A S P” ★ Label: Spun Out Of Control ★ Released 02 September 2016 ★

Music Inspired by Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy.

“Author Stieg Larsson’s characters Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist from the Millennium Trilogy are incredibly complex and haunting characters, faced with conflicts both internal and external. With this album I sought to write music for both their characters as well as the stark frigid climates of Sweden where the stories take place. The music sounds cold and claustrophobic at times with icy pads and brooding drones but is tied together by fragile emotional melodies that float above the dense layers of synth textures.

I personally enjoy listening to music while reading and thought the idea of composing a book soundtrack while reading the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson would be exciting and rewarding. I am extremely proud of what resulted and I hope you enjoy it too!”

Composed, produced & performed by Bryce Miller.

Specially commissioned artwork for Spun Out Of Control by Eric Adrian Lee.

Strictly limited tape, professionally dubbed, with j-card design.

Repeated Viewing :: Art Imitates

Repeated ViewingArt Imitates” ★ Label: Spun Out Of Control ★ Rel. 08 August 2016 ★

Cues from and inspired by the short film ‘Art Imitates’, a darkly satirical look at the compromises and sacrifices one actress decides to make to achieve her own Hollywood ending. Scored by Glaswegian composer Alan Sinclair – aka Repeated Viewing – this film score showcases a more ambient and minimalist side to his electronica-based musical palette, that reflects the dream-like nature of the short and, in turn, makes for absolutely perfect late night listening!

Whilst Side A of this tape release on Spun Out Of Control is music used in the film, Side B is composed of tracks recorded at the same time and in the same vein that did not make the final cut. For completeness these ‘bonus tracks’ are included here as being perfect musical bedfellows.

Composed, produced & performed by Repeated Viewing, 2016.

Specially commissioned artwork unique to this release by Eric Adrian Lee.

OGRE & Dallas Campbell :: All Hallows’

OGRE & Dallas CampbellAll Hallows’” ★ Label: Spun Out Of Control ★ Rel. 24 June 2016 ★

All Hallows’ is a full length studio album by Robin Ogden (OGRE) and Dallas Campbell. Dissecting the vocabulary of 70’s and 80’s horror soundtracks, All Hallows’ recaptures the acoustic fingerprint of an era where the synthesiser was the keystone of film scoring. Plotted around an original horror story set to thrill and enhance the cinematic drama of the music – printed on the fold out j-card with the cassette edition and also provided as a downloadable PDF with the digital version – the album is a conceptual journey into fear of the unknown.

The prose trepans into the 1980’s horror tradition; as we set down the score to the greatest horror film that never was, we bring you the cinema of the imagination with a story that traverses the legacy of classic slasher flicks – unadulterated by bad acting. Combine both at once to create an active listening experience, let the music take you paragraph by paragraph to a chilling evening on the outskirts of town…

Fear the music, not the listening!
