Disney's video game crossover movie TRON was a notable landmark in the synthesis of electronic and traditional orchestral music. Wendy Carlos created a brilliant orchestral recording with symphonic backgrounds by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the UCLA Chorus which was later enhanced and upgraded with an electronic score. The result is an impressive soundscape that successfully and seamlessly fuses organic and electronic music.
The multi-Grammy award winning Wendy Carlos best-known for her popular Switched on Bach, series of albums also composed and performed on the soundtracks of two Stanley Kubrick cinema masterpieces, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining.
The distinctive gatefold jacket holds two 180g translucent blue vinyl records and includes colorful photos from the popular cult film as well as generous and informative liner notes written by the composer as well as music maven, Michael Fremer. Audiophile mastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.
The TRON album includes two tracks ("Only Solutions and the rock guitar-driven instrumental, "1990's Theme") provided by Journey, one of America's best selling and most beloved bands.
"The score deserves another listen in the analog domain by another generation and that will happen when this soundtrack is reissued." - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet
"...the original soundtrack to Disney's video game crossover movie Tron was a notable landmark in the synthesis of electronic and traditional orchestral music. Given a set of cues by the director, Carlos composed an electronic score for the movie, which was later overlapped with symphonic backgrounds by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the UCLA Chorus...the result is an impressive score that fuses organic and electronic to such a degree that much of the score sounds of a piece." - John Bush, allmusic.com
