David Julyan - THE DESCENT

mi avril 2022

** First time on vinyl ** Released on limited 'Blood Pool' red vinyl with 3x Lobby card prints with liner notes from composer David Julyan and Director Neil Marshall Cut at Abbey Road Studios by Alex GordonBurning Witches Records are honoured to present the David Julyan score to one of the greatest British horror films ever made – The Descent.Neil Marshall’s sophomore film, 2005’s The Descent, brought the British filmmaker into Masters of Horror territory (and for good reason). The claustrophobic as hell look at a group of women exploring caves while also coming to terms with internal secrets, untreated trauma and if all of that wasn’t bad enough: cave dwelling creatures, hungry for blood, shocked audiences worldwide and solidified Marshall as a filmmaker to watch out for.Like the cavernous horror playing out in front of us, composer David Julyan’s score for The Descent engulfs its listener in a claustrophobic yet ethereal atmosphere, easing you in with its beautiful string arrangements, before closing into such dreadfully tight sounds of horror. A combination of symphonic and ambient sounds, Julyan uses his knack for world building, utilising the composer’s ability to combine the classical and the experimental into a cornucopia of mood and tone.  - Jerry Smith
