Invada Records will release an expanded, re-mastered edition of the Warning Sign soundtrack digitally, on CD and LP in November. The album features the original score by Craig Safan, along with 20 minutes of unreleased music presented as bonus tracks.
"I was very surprised and excited to get the call from Invada that they wanted to release the score," said Safan. "I've been involved in synthesizers since my college days and it's always been a large part of my compositional palette. I love being able to invent new sounds and alter familiar ones."
Warning Sign was one of the first all-electronic film scores, recorded using a Synclavier synthesizeran incredibly expensive piece of kit at the time for the story of a man-made virus that is accidentally released, turning the laboratory workers into zombies.
"The Synclavier was so complex that I was literally reading the three huge loose-leaf manuals while composing," joked Safan. "It was truly on-the-job training! The synth cost $75,000 (in 1983!), ran on Unix, and a 10 meg (not gig) hard drive cost $10,000!"
Warning Sign - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally, on CD and on LP in November 2014.
"Vinyl?! I really thought it was gone for good… but now I'm going to have to go out and buy a turntable!" joked Safan.
