Notebook Soundtrack Mix #1: "HYPER SLEEP"

HYPER SLEEP

Welcome to the first Notebook Soundtrack Mix—HYPER SLEEP! A word about the mix: There's no thematic thread through this collection, it's a variety of intriguing music. In making soundtrack mixes, I'm drawn to the subjective qualities of association and meaning that arise from experiencing the musical narratives that result from transitions and combinations of tracks in succession. Though there are several favorite films, Seijun Suzuki's Branded to Kill, for one, individual pieces are chosen simply for the music. I haven't seen some of the films. Robert Drasnin, Vladimir Cosma and Antoine Duhamel are represented with curious French T.V. work, rather than with some of their more well known output (The Kremlin Letter, Diva and Pierrot le fou, respectively.) Maybe this is the first of a series…I have several ideas for themed mixes, but wanted to start this way, including work that reflects jazz, classical, experimental and pop influences.

Part of our on-going series, Notebook Soundtrack Mixes.

  • ruby stevens

  • pmarasa

    Thanks so much; you are helping to revive that (should-be) most revered of art forms, the mix “tape.” Completely wonderful—and I’ve made it only to The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.!

  • Michelle K

    is there a way to download this so that it is not all in one single mp3?

  • profoblivion

    Great job. I love the selections of Goldsmith, Morricone, and Cipriani. This is a cinema lover’s delight.

  • Daniel Kasman

    Michelle: you can only download it as a mix, sorry!

  • Marco Schiavitelli

    Great idea and amazing job indeed! Looking forward to the next one!

  • herb shellenberger

    Excellent stuff!

  • herb shellenberger

    I’ve always wondered a few things about film soundtracks, specifically if a soundtrack is not commercially released, would there still be intact copies of the master recordings that are either accessible or non-accessible in archives? When we hear original music in films (as opposed to pop songs), sometimes we hear the actors talking over it, but it has to exist in some uninterrupted form as well, doesn’t it? Are there ways to access these sounds for scholarly purposes?

    Following from that, can I assume that most of these tracks are commercially released as soundtracks/scores to these films? Or did you dig some up from other places?

    In the past, I’ve copied sound straight from film (music or otherwise) onto mixtapes through my mixer with interesting results. I’m sort of getting out of the vinyl game, but I still love listening to and studying library music and soundtracks, so a great resource for that is soundtrackcollector.com .

  • Paul Clipson

    Hi herbie, thanks- I’m glad you like the mix! All of the tracks are from soundtracks that have been released commercially. Most, but not all, are still in print and fairly easy to find.

  • Didn’t Pino Donaggio do the “Blow Out” music?

  • And I forgot to say…fantastic mix!

  • Paul Clipson

    Thanks! Pino Donaggio did indeed compose a beautiful score to Brian De Palma’s “Bow Out,” but this specific “Blowout” track by Michel Legrand is for Richard Brook’s film, “The Happy Ending.”

  • Oops. Sorry ’bout that…

  • Desirée

    thanks for this! it’s so atmospheric. i’m really enjoying writing my kubrick & theology thesis while listening to this.

  • Shay J. Katz

    This is Lovely. Thanks so much for the trouble you took to compile this.

  • Matt Phillips

    John Carpenter definitely checked out ‘The Go Between’ before he wrote his score for ‘The Fog’…

  • raqz xuneh

    there is a “soundtrack” genre that artists are doing for pseudo films. it is interesting to hear albums and imagining what they are trying to project and what the film would be like if it was created.
