The innovative animated film A Scanner Darkly has opened in limited release and will be expanding across North America throughout July and August, and to celebrate, I’ve got three copies of the CD soundtrack to give away, courtesy of Lakeshore Records. Here’s the scoop on the soundtrack, from Lakeshore:

A Scanner Darkly is Richard Linklater’s adaptation of the Philip K. Dick classic novel. Graham Reynolds composed the original music, which he performed with a cast of Austin-based musicians including his group Golden Arm Trio. The soundtrack recording, on Lakeshore Records, features the score plus two re-mixes, by DJ Spooky and Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto)

Reynolds began with an all-acoustic, somewhat jazz-noir sound, and kept exploring different approaches, ending up with music that was halfway between an acoustic and an electronic score. Reynolds described, “all the sounds originally came from acoustic instruments, but for much of the film, they are processed, mangled, and otherwise transformed. The result is something very textured and organic, but also otherworldly, sounding drug-induced and unidentifiable.”

The result is a score called “eerily evocative” by Variety. Cinematical says “Graham Reynolds’ score… fit subtly and perfectly with the unique look of the film.”

My review of the film is here.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the CD at Amazon.
