What is the reason these are being recorded anew instead of releasing the original tracks?

Re-use fees. Quality of the recording. State of the elements.

Yes, it's a boy soprano over a small ensemble of players.
Similar to something he did in TESTAMENT.
But very emotional and evocative.
And I imagine they're being re-recorded cos the owners/licensors won't play ball (THE HAND) or the tapes are lost (THE DRESSER).

You’re referring to TD, correct? If so, was that a boy soprano in the original end credits?

I saw The Dresser early in its theatrical run and was totally wowed. One of the best pure acting films I've ever seen in my life, tour de force stuff. A fella I was acquainted with played the Edward Fox role on the Broadway stage. Tom Courtenay transferred his performance brilliantly from there to the screen. Funny thing about the score, though, is that all I remember is the haunting music at the end that spilled over into the closing credits.

I agree, the film is wonderful. I’ve rewatched it many times and also read the play over and over. Indelible language and maybe Finney’s best role. Horner’s score made an impression on me then and remains one of my true remaining grails. This new recording will be most welcome. Unless they do some rearranging, the score calls for a treble boy solo, which will be interesting to hear. Mostly harp and horn solo otherwise. A sparse score, maybe ten minutes overall, but very high quality Horner from a period of great originality and distinction.

Yes, THE DRESSER has echoes of TESTAMENT and the sombre parts of BRAINSTORM in its execution.
For such a short score, it is incredibly powerful (in an understated way) and effective.
Proof that, even from such an early age, Horner's ability to support and enhance a film with music was at a ridiculously high level.

Couldn’t agree more.

Maybe they’ve decided to wait and not run to soundtrack Kickstarters at the same time.

We just secured the collaboration of Craig Huxley to play the Blaster Beam on THE HAND! As an additional bonus, we have added a tour of his studio, a lesson to play the Blaster Beam, plus dinner with Craig and his daughter Fiona in his studio in Los Angeles for the $3000 and $5000 tiers. There must be a minimum of 5 backers each on these tiers for this to happen. So go ahead, we are thrilled to have them on board.

Just pledged! Best of luck with the project.

I take it Huxley performed on the original recording? Very cool he's coming back for the re-record then.

I'm a bit taken aback by the goal of almost $129,000, which is more than twice what Intrada asked for their recent Herrmann twofer. But I wish you luck in reaching it and I guess I'll go in for the $35 CD tier since I won't get charged unless you reach that goal.

Yes, Craig played on the original recording, as well as on dozens of others. One is of particular interest to us... I am dropping a hint here.

We are aware it is a lot of money we are asking for, but you have to appreciate that it is almost 140 minutes of orchestral film music we are recording (IF we can fit the concert works in the schedule). Intrada usually doesn't have such big projects.

Here is to many more...!

I didn’t realize it was that much music! Is The Dresser longer as written than what ended up in the film, or something? How do those 140 minutes break down, by score, if you don’t mind answering?

And why not save the concert works for a stretch goal or something, so that you have a better chance of meeting the base goal for The Hand/The Dresser?

Given the hints in the original announcement, I'm guessing it's Battle Beyond the Stars. Would be awesome to not only have Craig Huxley back on blaster beam, but maybe David Newman back as conductor (with great players this time)! wink

Yes... that's rather confusing. the price is EXTREMELY high since it is being advertised as The Hand / The Dresser only - I suppose The Hand might be something like 40-50 minutes max with The Dresser no longer than 15-20 (and that's an exaggeration)...

If the goal is to record 140 minutes all at once it seems like a major project, which may cause its ultimate failure (unless Horner estate or some rich uncle is going to donate tens of thousands last minute to make sure it will happen).

And since this is supposed to be more albums, it should have been rather split into two or more separate campaigns - or include the stretch goal as Yavar suggested - which would have MUCH bigger chance to actually make it. This makes it by far the most expensive KS campaign yet run by any label so far (even King of Kings was considerably cheaper and required MUCH bigger orchestra+choir).

But we'll see how it goes. I am not that optimistic.
