Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross remix John Carpenter's Halloween theme

In case you haven't noticed today is Friday the the month of Hallowe'en, no less. Carpenter's revolutionary use of analog synthesizers when scoring Halloween became a hallmark of horror movies to follow as well as influencing a new crop of musicians like Mike Patton, Symmetry, Desire and Chromatics, Cliff Martinez, and SURVIVE have taken elements of Carpenter's signature sound.

John Carpenter's Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 comes out October 20 on Sacred Bones Records.

John Carpenter shared a statement of his own, saying that Reznor and Ross' version of his song "does awesome justice to the original". We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the sh!t genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads.

The new version of the Halloween theme song can be found on composer/director John Carpenter's Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 next week.

The theme turned out by Reznor and Ross is dark and moody, stretching out Carpenter's theme into a rising and falling stretch of composition both familiar and new. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.

Anthology: Movie Themes 1974 - 1998 collects 13 (appropriate, no?) movie themes from Carpenter's career together on one volume for the first time. It also features music from "Assault On Precinct 13", "The Fog", "Dark Star" and more.
