John Carpenter - Christine (main theme, cover)

Lets just get this straight.. John Carpenter is my top inspiration, I can easily say if it was not for him I would not be the person I am today. The inspiration he has given me through his music and movies has undeniably set its marks on everything creative i do. I might not be a master movie director, but the music part is something i keep very close to my heart.

One of my favourite Carpenter themes is from the Movie Christine, problem with this is that I really like the movie soundtrack better than The Splash band versions of the track.. however there are some elements in the splash band version that works... so after 33 years of thinking about it, I finally decided to merge the elements i like the most and make a cover version :)

This is completely freeform and live straight to 2-track with no multitracking involved. Also i take a lot of liberties interpreting the melodies and time signatures .. see it as my hommage to the master of horror music !

Gear used: Nord lead A1, Reface CP (intro section) + Bluesky and particle delay on the CP. Braids in the modular plays the main sequence which gets some modulation from the maths + tides + keeley caverns reverb and delay. 0-coast adds a bassline which is washed with reverb in the elektron A4.. the A4 itself adds the classic 4:4 bass notes.. main theme melody is played on the KORG monologue. Drums from the TR-8.. thats it :)

Hope you like it! And also a big shout out to mr Carpenter, thank you for making all the movies and music over the years.. you are my hero !"
