Morgan succeeded in crafting an expressive fusion of Bernard Herrmann and Max Steiner, imparting a musical voice distilled from a confluence of both: the brooding, swelling, ominous Herrmann chords frothing with the vivid melodic touches of Steiner. Despite the production's meager budget, Barkett was able to accommodate a reasonably large orchestra to record the score. His score is almost an anachronism for its day, reflecting a scoring tradition of an earlier era at a time when most sci-fi films were exploring new worlds of electronic music or embodying clear-cut Star Wars facsimiles. But Morgan's music gave The Aftermath a potent aural production value that elevated it far above its low-budget roots and provided the story with a pervasive sense of dramatic import that no other film of its type had achieved at the time.
Dragon's Domain Records is excited to present the world premiere compact disc release of The Aftermath, remastered and reconstructed from the composer's own elements by James Nelson at Digital Outland with assistance from composer William Stromberg. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of the film's director and star, Steve Barkett, along with composer John Morgan and a final word from composer William Stromberg.
This is a limited edition release of 1000 units.
