The Sender by Trevor Jones. Once you get past the nightmare-inducing artwork, this is actually quite a beautiful score, filled with emotion and Jones' trademark mysticism. Fans of The Dark Crystal and Excalibur should find this one very satisfying, as it's definitely of a piece with the composer's lush, early-eighties sound. (As a side note: while the film is very obscure, it's definitely worth your time, featuring great performances from Zeljko Ivanek, Kathryn Harrold, Paul Freeman, and a particularly effective turn by Shirley Knight. Although it's been classified as a horror film, it's really more of a psychodrama/mystery.)
This release was produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Michael Matessino, who did an excellent job of presenting the mono source in the best possible light. My thanks again to the team at La-La Land – this score was a thrilling discovery for me, and I'm very happy to have been involved!
