After early efforts with British avant-garde jazz-rock group Coil to compose and record music for the film did not come together, Clive Barker and HELLRAISER producer Christopher Figg hired composer Christopher Young to score the film. Young was asked to write a full orchestral score for the film and, at the center of the score, a kind of diabolical waltz and what has since become one of the most well recognized pieces of music in history of horror films and helped launch the composer’s career. For the sequel, Young retained a similar musical sensibility, while developing an even more robust approach, which included the addition of a choir.
Golden Globe-nominated composer Christopher Young has scored nearly 100 films, including films such as HELLRAISER, JENNIFER 8, MURDER IN THE FIRST, COPYCAT, SPECIES, THE HURRICANE, SWORDFISH, THE SHIPPING NEWS, THE HURRICANE, THE CORE, THE GRUDGE, THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE, SPIDER-MAN 3, UNTRACEABLE, THE UNINVITED, DRAG ME TO HELL, THE RUM DIARY, THE BLACK TULIP and, most recently, SINISTER. Born in Red Bank, New Jersey, Young graduated from Massachusetts Hampshire College with a BA in music and did post-graduate work at North Texas State University, studying big band writing and classical composition before moving to Los Angeles in 1980. While enrolled at UCLA, he studied with famed film composer David Raksin. In addition to his career as a film composer, he has also taught composition at UCLA.
BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents HELLRAISER/HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, featuring music composed by Christopher Young. Both scores have been released previously on compact disc but those releases are long out of print and difficult to find. HELLRAISER/HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II are presented here on 2 CDs with liner notes written by author Randall Larson and music for both films newly remastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland.
Limited edition release of 2000 units.
