Editorial Reviews

Jagjaguwar & Death Waltz Recording Company are proud and excited to release a true masterpiece into the world with the soundtrack to Panos Cosmatos' Beyond The Black Rainbow. Posited as a "lost film" of the 1980s, the picture is inspired by classic dystopian fiction and the obscure SF movies one used to see lining the shelves of the local video store. As such, the brilliant soundtrack blends seamlessly amongst its influences; Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos, and of course John Carpenter, with the latter's mark heard on the oppressive synth percussion of the main titles and the evocative melodies heard throughout. Created by Sinoia Caves, the ongoing project of Jeremy Schmidt, a disciple of the long-form cosmic synthesizer soundscape, and member of Canadian psych-and-prog-spiritual pioneers Black Mountain, this recording also features guest appearances by Joshua Wells, drummer of Black Mountain. Schmidt s score is many things haunting, uncompromising, intense but is always a fascinating listen. Incorporating touchstone elements such as mellotron choirs, glacial analogue synthesizer pads and arpeggiators, Schmidt artfully navigates the various sonic sensibilities of the 70s-80s genre aesthetic. What emerges from this schematic realm of the 'almost familiar' evolves and manifests as a work of striking originality, an ominously beautiful, otherworldly and terrifying score. Simply put, BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW is an astounding piece of work and must not be missed. Do you read me?

First off, as a couple of reviewers have already noted, this is not quite the exact original soundtrack score as heard in the (frankly amazing) film, Beyond The Black Rainbow.

The film is one of my favourites of the last decade, truly a unique mix of 80's B-movie atmosphere and well crafted, beautiful audio-visual art. I have longed for a release of the soundtrack ever since I fell in love with the movie.

On first listen, I admit that I was surprised. The base cues of the film are all here, but they have been enhanced and added to in almost every case. Initially a little annoyed by this I have to admit, I repeated my listens. Eventually, I realised that what Sinoia Caves (Jeremy Schmidt) has managed to do here is transform a soundtrack from a film into an amazing album which is not only a soundtrack, but is also a full standalone record and something that I believe will really stand the test of time.

It's a bold move - of course, you know you will upset purists who will want the exact soundtrack they heard from the movie. But in my opinion it really works. It took a few listens, but I'm incredibly happy with the result and the whole team responsible for this release must be applauded for taking this risk.

Firstly, this is really fantastic to finally own and I am truly thankful for having this wonderful film's soundtrack available at last, to listen to as a standalone piece of amazing art. Secondly, to hear this slightly new take on the film's score is a really fulfilling experience, if you give it a chance.

Truly superb stuff - if you loved the film and have an open mind (and really, if you loved the film then you very likely already have an open mind!) then please buy it. Truly, one of the best movie scores in AGES.

I love whims. They seem to reciprocate some of the best finds. On a whim, I picked up Breakfast of Champions at 15 years old and discovered one of the greatest writers in my time or any other time. On a whim I went on a blind date when I was 17 and found the girl I'd end up marrying and making cute kids with. On a whim I mixed chocolate and peanut butter and created one of the most revered confections in the history of confections. Wait a minute. That last one wasn't my whim. It was H. B. Reese's whim. But still, you get what I'm saying. Whims are what make life so much fun.

Awhile back, on a whim I clicked on an interesting picture that popped up in my social network feed. It was a movie poster for a film called Beyond The Black Rainbow. It was this strange little Canadian sci fi flick that came out back in 2010 about some institute that helped promote enlightenment through natural pharmaceuticals and other means that would ultimately turn out horribly. It was made to look like one of those classic, colorful b-movies you'd find on the back wall of your local video store back in 1983. This intrigued me. Once I saw that the soundtrack was being issued on vinyl by Death Waltz Recording Company(UK) and Jagjaguwar(US) my interest peaked further. The soundtrack was done by a band called Sinoia Caves, which is really just one guy named Jeremy Schmidt. He's in the Canadian prog band Black Mountain and is their keyboardist. His work as Sinoia Caves is heavy synth workouts that are about creating dark moods and atmosphere. When I listened to the first song from his soundtrack, "Forever Dilating Eye", I was floored. Heavily influenced by Phaedra-era Tangerine Dream, and John Carpenter's synth scores, this music grabbed me by the lapels and shook the crap out of me.

One of the best analog synthesizer soundtracks to come out since the John Carpenter era in the 80's. Jeremy Schmidt has obviously done his homework and really knows his synthesis. If only he would release more music in this style like earlier Zombi and Umberto. Dark, haunting, and fits the film's ethereal mood to a tee. A must have for anyone who digs music and horror films, psycho thrillers, or sci-fi. Bravo

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT the real soundtrack!!!! September 2, 2014
This is NOT the real soundtrack from the film!!!! This has lots of added music on top of the original tracks that should not be there and ruin the vibe. NOT happy at all!!!! Hopefully some day there will be a real release of the complete soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars The synth hooks in the trailer were the main thing ... October 7, 2014

The synth hooks in the trailer were the main thing that piqued my interest in the film. This stands on it's own as an album, four years after the film release and worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 1980s soundtrack released in 2014 September 11, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This soundtrack is amazing and well worth the wait it has taken to be released. If you saw the movie and enjoyed it, then this is a no-brainer purchase. It's pure synth pleasure.
