Escape from New York Theme | John Carpenter

IMO, this is John Carpenter’s best movie theme. If you know John Carpenter, you know he does all of his movie music himself and it is all badass. His earlier stuff is all kind of atmospheric synths and it doesn’t seem like he really knows how music works, but it is still amazing. By the time, he got to Escape from NY, it seems like he’s gotten pretty fluent in the language of composition. Even though the Escape theme pretty much cycles one riff for like 3 minutes, it is still the shit. The arpegiator really makes it. really ties the room together.

I’d like to hear some remixes by some techno/hip-hop dudes. Not like, you google it and send me a link. More like, you spend an hour with it and see where it takes you, and then we can talk about it.

I don't actually remember this scene from the movie, but it's been a while for me. Apparently, the original lp soundtrack cover features Snake wielding a MAC-11 with suppressor, with a scope mounted on the suppressor. I don't know if that setup would yield great results to an IRL shooter, but it sure looks cool.

Apparently, the original lp soundtrack jacket, which looks kind of like an 8-bit Nintendo jacket, features Snake Plisken wielding a MAC-11 with suppressor, with a scope mounted on the suppressor. I don’t know if that setup would yield great results to an IRL shooter, but it sure looks cool.
