Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity is proud to announce the release of Disney’s TRON Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The 1982 film score was composed, performed and produced by the pioneer electronic musician, Wendy Carlos.
The Audio Fidelity release will contain two 180g translucent blue vinyl records packaged in a distinctive gatefold jacket. Gatefold package includes photos from the film and extensive liner notes written by Wendy Carlos. There are additional liner notes written by music maven Michael Fremer. The album was mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.
Disney’s 1982 video game crossover movie TRON was a notable landmark in the synthesis of electronic and traditional orchestral music. 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 TRON album includes two additional 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.
