    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Search your heart/Passing the Torch" from "Ernest Saves Christmas" (1988). And we continue the celebration of the Christmas spirit with two more tracks from Mark's Christmas score. Mark gets in the mood for Christmas with warm and lush strings and combines that with some big brass moments. While we're waiting for an offical release of this score, let's be happy that there is a promotional release with this wonderful music. Enjoy!

    Life of a Comet

    Don't worry, I got the notification that I was mentioned here. 😄 The piece of of music is definately a track from Mark Snow's score for that episode. You can not only hear his trademark samples, that he also used in The X-Files, but the last third of the track "Headlights" from the first volume of MillenniuM music features some of the music that can be heard under Frank's narration. But the track itself from "Life of a comet" sadly hasn't been released on the two CD sets. The sets are also on Spotify, you can listen to the track "Headlights". A part of "Life of a comet" can be heard at around 02:00 minutes. Of course it is not exactly the same, but that's all there is.

    Snow Files of the Week

    There is one copy up for sale on Ebay at the moment. 🙂 Ernest Saves Christmas Snow Files of the Week: "Santos Elves/The Way it was" from "MillenniuM", episode "Omerta" (1998). "Omerta" is the Christmas episode from the third season of "MillenniuM". The story evolves around two young women living in the woods, away from civilization. Their names are Lassa and Rose, Lassa has healing powers. For his score Mark used operatic vocal samples, providing a magical touch to the music. Mark mixes his brooding ambient music with the wonderful theme for Lassa and Rose, making "Omerta" one of the most outstanding scores in the three years run of "MillenniuM". The tracks can be found on the fist volume of music from "MillenniuM", released by La-La Land Records. The volume is limited to 1.000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week: "Ernest Saves Christmas/Christmas Spirit" from the movie "Ernest Saves Christmas" (1988). It's that time of the year again and Mark Snow joins the celebration with this jolly score. Performed by an orchestra this score shows Mark in perfect Christmas spirit, very different from his more darker ambient stuff. The score hasn't been released officially yet, there is only a promotional CD out there. Maybe someday we'll see a proper release. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Threnody in X/Quitting/Plague (Alternate Segment)" from the movie "The X-Files - Fight the Future" (1998). For the first X-Files motion picture, Mark took his electronic soundscapes and put them into orchestral music. He even surprised the producers, when he conducted his music, because for them he was just the "synthesizer guy". Some bits of the films score also appear in the tv show, like in the final episode of season five, "The End". A score album was released with the movie. Sadly it has some sound issues. The stereo channels are reversed, which leads to an overall muffled and flat sound. La-La Land Records released an expanded album of the score, which not only solved the sound problems of the original release, but there is also more music on it and a very informative booklet with not one, not two, but three interviews with Mark. This release is limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Choices/Finis" from "Private Fears in Public Places (aka Coeurs)" (2006). This movie marked the first collaboration between Mark and french director Alain Resnais. Resnais had the rough cut of the movie temp tracked with Mark's music from "The X-Files" and "MillenniuM". It's therefore no surprise, that the final score sometimes reminds the listener of these shows. Mark's score is very melancholic and soft overall, matching the movie's tone, where it's constantly snowing. The movie follows a group of people, that are essentially looking for love, in one way or another, but after all, it's really a movie about loneliness. Mark's score was pretty much butchered in the final movie. Resnais only used 10 to 20 second bits of the music between certain scenes, leaving the main part of the score out of the movie. The score can therefore only be heard entirely on the CD, which was released by Buysoundtrax Records, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Fame and Fortune/The Golden Gate" from the movie "Crazy in Alabama" (1999). The movie marks the directional debut of Antonio Banderas and stars his then-wife Melanie Griffiths in the leading role. The film is a comedy-drama about murder and unfulfilled dreams. Mark's music is in parts very soft and dreamy, perfectly fitting the journey of the lead female, with some MillenniuM moments in it. The score was released by Silva Screen Records and is still around for very low prices. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Jack O' Lantern/Battery/790 Days" from "MillenniuM", episode "The Curse of Frank Black" (1997). What would Halloween be without "The Curse of Frank Black"? A very popular episode amongst fans of "MillenniuM", it features everything you could hope for on this night: Strange happenings, Demons, black cats, witches, ghosts and an overall dark and tense atmosphere. Mark brings the moody episode to a higher level with his dark and spooky music. At the end of the episode, Mark even incorporates a piece of classical music into his score, the "Sarabande" by Georg Friedrich Händel. The music was released on the first volume of "MillenniuM" music by La-La Land Records in 2008. This edition sold out and was re-released, limited to 1.000 copies. Happy Halloween! 
  9. This is an interview with Lance from 2014. He talks about recent movies he's done, about ALIENS, NEAR DARK and also about MillenniuM. The MillenniuM bit starts at minute 20:04. And they even did another one in 2015, also with a MillenniuM bit (starts at 7:17):

    Snow Files of the Week

    No, unfortunately I haven't seen the documentary. I only know that it's a swedish production and that Mark did the music for it. But I got some information concerning the tracklist and overall credits: Tracklist: 01. Introductin 02. People and UFO's 03. Explaining UFO's 04. Real Encounters 05. Life Among the Sun's Family 06. The Search for Alien Life 07. What's up in the Night? 08. Ending Total time: 47min 30s Credits: Score composed by Mark Snow Executive producer: Robert Urband Mixed and recorder by: Larold Rebhun Special thanks to: Tom Callen, Larold Rebhun, Robert Urband, Sandra Cortez, Sally Zito and Jeff Charbonneau. Snow Files of the Week: "Prayer/Suicide Exam" from the X-Files episode "Die Hand Die Verletzt (1995)". Just in time for Halloween a very eerie score. A remarkable piece of music by Mark for this episode. The story around satanic rituals, belief and possession inspired Mark to this very dark and gothic score. The brooding ambient music sets the mood for the chilling events that occur at a high school. Mark also brings some satanic chants into the music, making this one of the most memorable scores of the entire show. "Die Hand Die Verletzt" is german for "The Hand that wounds". The term can be heard in the satanic prayer the teachers are doing at the beginning of the episode. Ironically the episode got another title in Germany, where it's called "Satan". Music from "Die Hand Die Verletzt" was released on the second volume of the X-Files 4-Disc-Box-Set by La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!
  12. La-La Land Records is celebrating its 16th birthday. And because of that they offer a 16% bargain on every order. Just in case someone wants to save money on the two MillenniuM volumes. 😉

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "People & UFO's/ Life Among The Sun's Family" from the score to the IMAX feature "UFO - The Truth Is Here" (2001). This is a very rare piece of music by Mark, since the album was only available at IMAX theatres in Sweden. The music assembles the best parts of Mark's ambient music for the early X-FILES-Seasons (no surprise considering the subject matter). The CD is a very rare collector's item, since it was never available for sale online and is now very hard to find. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    I found it on the Amazon marketplace. Snow Files of the Week: "Titles/Sadie tells about Tate" from the tv movie "Helter Skelter" (2004). For this movie about Charles Manson and his "family", Snow composed a very dark and brooding score. Dark ambient soundscapes, combined with tender moments and a hauntig female solo voice. The CD was released by Buysoundtrax Records, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    You're welcome. I really enjoyed the movie, although it's pretty melancholic. But that's what I like about it. As far as I know the movie wasn't dubbed. Even here in Germany the movie isn't available on DVD, I got the British DVD, which has the movie in its original french language with englisch subtiltes on it. Snow Files of the Week: Suite from The X-Files episode "Post-Modern Prometheus" (1997). For this episode, Snow composed a very unusual score. The main theme, a circus-dance-music-piece, is something, that you would expect from Danny Elfman, not from Snow. But Mark combines this music with a more somber tone for the grief of "The Great Mutato", who is looking for something we all do: Love. And during Mutato's speech at the end of the episode, Mark again uses a piece of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" within his score. This specific piece can also be heard in the MillenniuM episode "Lament". The music was released as a promotional disc at first, later it got an offical release on La-La Land Records' first volume box of The X-Files music. There is also a single disc with music from The X-Files, that was released last year by BUYSOUNDTRAX.COM. "The X-Files 20th Anniversary" contains music from various seasons of the show, including the "Post-Modern Prometheus" music as a re-recording. The CD is limited to 1000 copies and is also available digitally. Enjoy!
