  1. Snow Files of the Week: "Loved You On Dragnet", from "The X-Files", episode "Rm9sbG93ZXJz" (2018). This episode from the 11th season with the somewhat strange title (a Base64 code that translates as "followers") is about the dangers that all controlling, artificial intelligences can bring with them. On this track, Mark does what he does best: gloomy sound collages that dissolve into melancholy piano themes. The music comes from the 2CD set by La-La Land Records, which is limited
  2. Snow Files of the Week: Suite from "Murder Between Friends" (1994). By 1994, Mark was already in the middle of the X-Files. Nevertheless, he still composed scores for various tv films. One of them was "Murder Between Friends", for which Mark naturally used the sounds he had already tried out in the X-Files. Nevertheless, the score is more than just an X-Files light, thanks to the bluesy electric guitar at times more reminiscent of Eric Clapton's play in the Lethal Weapon scores, and the male solo vocals, which stand in direct contrast to the "w
  3. Snow Files of the Week: "King Kersh / The Drop Zone / Scully's Serenade" from "The X-Files", episodes "Nothing Important Happened Today Part II", "This Is Not Happening" and "Per Manum" (2000/2002 ). These three episodes from the eighth and ninth seasons of the series deal with the so-called super soldiers, alien-human hybrids who can survive even normally fatal injuries. Among other things, they are after Scully's child, who was born at the end of season eight and also has alien DNA. Mark composed not only dar
  4. Snow Files of the Week: "My beautiful airplane/Love Comfort/That's Melancholy" from "Les Herbes Folles (aka "Wild Grass", 2009)". The movie marked the second collaboration between Alain Resnais and Mark Snow (after "Private Fears in Public Places"), two more would follow. The score is melancholic, supporting the beautiful and sometimes strange movie perfectly. The album is available digital and got a very limited release on double CD (together with the third Resnais/Snow collaboration "You ain't seen nothing yet") in France. Enjoy!
  5. Snow Files of the Week: "House Of Chucky P/Still Got Scoot In Your Boot/Scully Sees Scully" from "The X-Files", episode "Plus One" (2018). For this season 11 episode Mark composed a quirky theme for Chucky, accompanied by his trademark plucked strings. But the music soon descends into the mystical and brooding atmosphere of The X-Files, even including a short nod to the main theme. These tracks were released on the 2CD set for season 11 by La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 3.000 copies.
  6. Snow Files of the Week: "Overlooking Tradition/The Challenge/Chain Gang" from "Harsh Realm" (1999). The short-lived Chris Carter show of course also had a musical score by Mark Snow. His approach was more industrial than on the other Carter shows "The X-Files" and "MillenniuM". But nevertheless he wrote some very haunting tunes for that show, too. The score was released on CD by La-La-Land Records, paired with Mark's music for the "X-Files" spin-off "The Lone Gunmen". The CD is sold out! Enjoy!
  7. Snow Files of the Week: "Ice Cubes/Dan to the Rescue/Hit and Run/No One Ever Leaves Me/Victoria's Madness" from the tv movie "Seduced and Betrayed" (1995). In the early 90's BASIC INSTINCT hit the theatres and became almost immediately a modern classic. It was a huge comeback for erotic thrillers and in the years that followed many movies wanted to be like it. This is also true for the music, composed by the great Jerry Goldsmith, that influenced the thriller genre for years to come. When SEDUCED AND BETRAYED came around in 1995, it more or less tried to imitate the sexual undertones. And
  8. Snow Files of the Week: "Our Love/Notions/Midnight Rendez-Vous" from "You ain't seen nothing yet (Vous n´avez encore rien vu, 2012). This french movie marked the third collaboration between Mark and director Alain Resnais. The movie is much like a stage play, but nevertheless very magical and touching. Whilst Mark's score for "Private Fears in Public Places", the first Snow-Resnais-Collaboration, was very much butchered in the final movie, it was way better in "Wild Grass" and "You ain't seen nothing yet". Snow's music is as magical and tragic, as the movie is and together they crea
  9. Snow Files of the Week: "El Lobo/Sling Blade" from "The Lone Gunmen". This short-lived X-Files-spin-off focused more on humour. Mark's music also has a brighter touch to it, with sometimes even James-Bond-like spy music. The cliffhanger of the show was resolved in the ninth season of THE X-FILES, with the episode "Jump the shark". Mark's music was released, limited to 2000 copies, by La-La-Land Records. The album also has music from the fourth Chris-Carter-show, HARSH REALM, on it. The album is sold out. Enjoy!
  10. Snow Files of the Week: "Catalogued/Deny Everything/Blood on Paper" from The X-Files, episodes "Duane Barry" and "Ascension" (1994). A classic X-Files two-parter from the second season of the series. And with Duane Barry one of the most distinctive figures in the X-Files universe, played in a disturbingly manic way by Steve Railsback. For a long time Barry has been haunted by aliens at night who repeatedly carry out experiments on him. When another visitation is imminent, Barry goes crazy and takes some hostages in an office building. The police thinks he's a dangerous lunatic, of course,
  11. Snow Files of the Week: "The Surgeon/Alpine Page/Dude Looks Like A Lady" from "MillenniuM", episode "Lamentation" (1996). This episode, written by Chris Carter, marks a milestone within MillenniuM's story arc. We don't only see the death of one of the main side characters, but also the first appearance of the demonic Lucy Butler, played by Sarah Jane Redmond, who would haunt Frank Black through every season of the show. And on top of that, the so-called "Gehenna Demon" makes a stunning appearance. It was also a standout episode musically. Mark wrote a signature motif for the psychoti
  12. Snow Files of the Week: "All The Pretty Horses/Bones" from The X-Files, episode "Invocation" (2000). It's a classic monster-of-the-week-episode about a little boy, Billy Underwood, who goes missing at a school fair, only to re-appear a decade later, not a day older. The main theme is one of the most memorable of the whole show. It perfectly captures the mind of the child, combined with a dream-like state of mind. It was often requested by fans and finally found its way onto the fourth volume of X-Files music, released by La-La
  13. Snow Files of the Week: "Main Title/The Pits/Cliffside Chase/Maggie Leaves" from "Jake Speed" (1986). It's time for some cheesy 80's action. During the mid-80's, Mark began composing more electronic scores, after he bought a synclavier (which Mark still uses). In 1986, "Jake Speed" came along and with him Mark's electronic 80's score. The score was released back then by Varese Sarabande Records on Vinyl and got a CD release just a few years ago on Buysoundtrax Records, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy the ride back to the 80's!
  14. Snow Files of the Week: "Bloody Jacuzzi/Old Files/Blood/Blood In The Loaf/Just Ashes And Bones" from The X-Files, episode "3" (1994). The father, the son and the unholy spirit. Three dark figures, maybe vampires, are on a killing spree. The episode begins with an elder businessman, who is seduced by a mysterious woman in his house in the Hollywood Hills, while there are fires burning in the canyon, illuminating the dark night. The track "Bloody Jacuzzi" again shows Mark as a master of beautiful piano themes. He also used this theme for the tv movie "Caroline at Midnight" from the same yea
