Track Listing Legend:
* Not Featured in Film

For the 1985 sci-fi film, My Science Project, composer Peter Bernstein and writer/director Jonathan Betuel agreed the film should have a traditional symphonic score, laced with elements of synthesizers and electronics. The score is largely in the Romantic orchestral vein popularized by John Williams and others in that decade's biggest blockbusters.

Bernstein wrote a six-note motif for the plot-generating gizmo, a chromatic fanfare that mingles menace and wonder. Bernstein fashioned his score with multiple layers of material, creating a massive musical canvas. He worked with the pop sensibilities of guitar and rhythm section to balance the numerous songs, created additional textures from several synthesized keyboards, combined elements of both to create new sonorities—and, of course, composed a considerable amount of music for large orchestra as well. Also included with this release is the pulsating end title song, "My Science Project" performed by The Tubes.

To present all of this fascinating music on CD for the first time, Intrada was given access to the masters on 2" 24-track session rolls and 1/2" multi-track keyboard session tapes recorded by Shawn Murphy at the Warner Bros. Scoring Stage.
