Lifeforce (2CD) (Henry Mancini)

36.95 EUR  
  Lifeforce - Henry Mancini / Michael Kamen - soundtrack (2CD)

Henry Mancini

  BSX Records BSXCD 8822 | Format CD | Year 1985

Space Vampires (1985, United States, working title)
Vampires From Outer Space (1985, Great Britain, working title)

Limited edition of 3000 copies.

2 CD's with additional music by Michael Kamen.

This 3000 unit limited edition release of a 2CD set of
music from Lifeforce, composed two legendary
composers, Henry Mancini and Michael Kamen.

The package contains the complete original score
composed by Mancini, the additional music by Kamen,
the Film Version of "Grandson of Web", in addition to
the original soundtrack album.

Lifeforce was the film adaptation of the novel The
Space Vampires, by Colin Wilson. Director Tobe Hooper
(The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist), took some
liberties with the story to tie it in to the
reappearance of Halley's Comet. A space shuttle
mission investigating the comet inadvertently brings
back a race of space vampires to London who seek to
transform the populace into zombies. Cannon Films,
felt the title Space Vampires seemed too low budget
and the film was renamed Lifeforce.

In 1985 when the vampire science fiction film
Lifeforce was in need of a composer, the Academy
Award® winner Henry Mancini seemed an unlikely choice.
But when Hooper's first choice, James Horner, hot off
the heels of his work with the first two Star Trek
films, proved unavailable, Mancini was brought on

Henry Mancini may best be recognized for his work with
more lighthearted film fare, like Breakfast at
Tiffany's and The Pink Panther film series, but
earlier in his career Mancini was a member of the
music department at Universal Pictures. As such he
composed the scores for numerous horror and science
fiction films like It Came From Outer Space, The
Creature from the Black Lagoon, and The Monolith
Monsters, which led Hooper to see if Mancini was
interested in revisiting the genre.

Mancini composed a provocative, dramatic and dynamic
orchestral score, an hour and forty minutes of music,
which mostly fell victim to the cutting room floor.
When Mancini did not want to go back and compose new
materials for the film, itself now 20 minutes shorter,
Michael Kamen was called in to fill in the musical
blanks. Kamen was an up-and-coming composer, having
already completed scores for David Cronenberg (The
Dead Zone) and Terry Gilliam (Brazil). presents a limited edition release
(3,000 copies) of Lifeforce, featuring Henry Mancini.s
complete score as recorded in sequence, along with
Michael Kamen's additional tracks. The package also
includes the original soundtrack recording and a
special bonus track, the film version of "Grandson of
Web (Of Destiny )" performed with choir.
