Condemned Soundtrack Review

Condemned-SoundtrackCondemned
Released by Lakeshore Records, 2015
14 Tracks with a total running time of 27 min.
Music by Daniel Davies and Sebastian Robertson

If a computer dreamed, I think this soundtrack would be what it sounded like. Using mainly an electronic based sound for this, Davies and Robertson are still come up with a wide variety of sounds throughout the score. Some of them are dark and creepy, almost like a futuristic film noir feel to it, using what sounds like feedback, or some sort of distortion. While other tracks, like the second half of the 3 track Hub To Dream, has a little keyboard theme in their briefly to give it a little bit of a feeling.

The range of emotions and feelings that come through in this score really hit the gambit. There are tracks like Black Disco that seem fitting for some late night new wave dance party. But then others like Axe Face is a slow-paced, tension building track that creates a wonderful scary feeling.

I’ll be interested to see the film to see how well the score blends in with the action. But by itself, it you are a fan of electronic scores, then you will enjoy this one.
