  1. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Ending", from the IMAX feature "UFO - The Truth Is Here" (2001). Mark's music for this IMAX movie assembles the mood and sounds of his early X-Files music. Dark, ambient drones and mystical soundscapes guide the listener into the world of the unknown. The CD was only available at IMAX theatres in Sweden, where the movie was playing and is now a very hard to find collector's item. Enjoy!
  2. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Prologue/Ride To Roswell/Call To Mulder" from "The X-Files", episode "My Struggle" (2016). Production of the new season, that will hit the screens in 2018, has already begun. As with last year's limited event series, there will only be two episodes evolving around the story arc. The remaining episodes will be stand-alone episodes again. While Mark Snow often used the stand-alone episodes to experiment musically, the story arc episodes had the musical concept pretty much set. The music is minimalistic, with some little musical motifs. This is also true for "My Struggle", the first episode of the limited event series. The music is very percussive with its pulsating rhythms. This concept was further developed by Snow in the final episode of the event series, "My Struggle II". The music from the limited event series was released on a 2CD set by La-La Land Records, limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!
  3. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: Music from "Ghost Whisperer", episode "Leap of Faith" (2009). For the show's full five season run, Mark provided his distinctive sound to it. During the five years, he wrote some wonderful themes, that are most of the time heard at the end of each episode. "Leap of Faith" is an episode from the fourth season of the show. Mark got nominated for an Emmy for the episode's music. Unfortunately no music from "Ghost Whisperer" by Mark was released officially yet. The rights to the show are divided between several studios (like Paramount and Touchstone), which makes it very difficult to get something released. Mark himself said that there already have been attempts to clear the rights for a release, but the negotiations didn't work out yet. This little Suite combines several tracks of music from the episode. Enjoy!
  4. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Trickster/The Wound" from the tv show "Harsh Realm" (1999). After "MillenniuM" Chris Carter started his third tv show, while "The X-Files" were still on air. "Harsh Realm" sadly missed to create an audience, that would keep the show running. It was cancelled before the first season was over. In the seventh season of "The X-Files", episode "Sein und Zeit", the father of the little girl Amber Lynn LaPierre is actually watching "Harsh Realm" on tv early in the episode. Mark looked for a slightly different approach to the Virtual Reality plot of the show and came up with more industrial soundscapes for the show. But this doesn't mean he skipped his melodic talent. These two tracks are the perfect example. Mark combines an etheral choir sound with his spheric tunes, performing a haunting variation of the main theme he composed. Music from "Harsh Realm" was released by La-La Land Records, paired with music from "The Lone Gunmen". The CD was limited to 2.000 copies and is sold out. Enjoy!
  5. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: Suite from "Mulder and Scully meet the Were-Monster", from The X-Files: The Event Series (2016). This is the third episode of the limited event series. Written and directed by Darin Morgan, the story about a lizard man, that gets bitten by a human, which turns himself into a human, heads back to the more ironic episodes of the show. It is also the episode that has the least music of all the new episodes. There are only about 17 minutes of music, broken down into several short pieces, most of them under a minute long. That's why it was decided to make a suite out of several tracks for the 2 CD release by La-La Land Records. The 2 CD set is limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!
  6. Snow Files of the Week

    Thanks, Darlene. :) Snow Files of the Week: "Burn Baby Burn/I'm Ready" from the tv show "Smallville" (2001/2011). These two tracks show Mark's different abilities of scoring the show. You have beautiful piano work, harsh action music and soft heroic moments. An album was released digitally, followed by a 2-CD set from La-La Land Records, containing more music than the digital release. The album also contains music by Louis Febre from the later seasons. The 2-CD set is limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!
  7. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "The Game Begins" from the tv movie "Night Sins" (1997). The score to this tv thriller has much in common with Mark's music for "The X-Files" and "MillenniuM". The pieces are glued together by the beautiful main theme, that Mark composed. It has all the ingredients we love about Mark's music. The score was released on CD by BUYSOUNDTRAX.COM, limited to 1000 copies and is still available, also digitally. Enjoy!
  8. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Main Title/Double Wide/Unplugged at Bishop Flats" from the movie "Disturbing Behavior" (1998). After "Scream" became a worldwide success, countless teenager horror movies entered the theatres. While "Disturbing Behavior" wasn't a slasher movie, it perfectly matches the wave of genre movies at the end of the 90's. The movie was directed by David Nutter, who also directed the first two episodes of the first season of "MillenniuM". So he was no stranger to the music of Mark Snow. Mark composed a very dark and ambient score for the movie, with some haunting tunes in between. The score was released on CD with the movie and the album is still around for reasonable prices. Enjoy!
  9. Happy Birthday Sadeyes!

    Thank you for your birthday wishes. It's always a great day being around such amazing people. Thank you very much.

    Snow Files of the Week: "George is thinking/Life is so strange" from the french movie "Les Herbes Folles (aka "Wild Grass")" (2009). Two more tracks from this very moving score by Mark. The piano theme is easily one of the most beautiful things Mark has ever written. And in the second track, "Life is so strange", the violin from "MillenniuM" makes another appearance. The score is available digitally and on a very rare 2-CD-Set, that was only released in France. Enjoy!
  11. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Capsules/A Mother Never Forgets/Mulder’s Memories" from "The X-Files: The Event Series", episode "Founder's Mutation" (2016). As the X-Files returned in 2016 so did Mark Snow. His music for the new episodes is familiar, but with enough new elements to keep it interesting. The score is more minimalistic overall, but nevertheless Mark wrote some wonderful themes. "Founder's Mutation" is the second episode of the event series. It evolves around a scientist who is experimenting on children with genetic anomalities to cure them. Scully and Mulder have visions of their son William, who is genetically different too. At the end of the episode Mulder fantasizes about his son William being grown up to schoolboy-age. He plays with him, builds a rocket and launches it and witnesses his abduction, just like he did with his sister. Back in reality Mulder looks at a photo of William. The music by Mark for this scene, "Mulder's Memories", is surely one of the most beautiful tracks of the event series. Enjoy!
  12. Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Evan's Theme/The Long Walk" from the comedy short movie "Dancing Cow" (2000). "After getting noticed by Miramax Pictures for his short film, a filmmaker has a moral dilemma when it comes up to facing the truth about the work he may (or may not) have made." (IMDb.com) Another more obscure piece of music by Mark, although his style is immediately recognizable. In fact, the music has grand and uplifting moments, as well as wacky comedy. The music was never released commercially, but it definitely deserves to be. Enjoy!
  13. Snow Files of the Week

    I think I did post it here, but I'm not so sure either. Have to look it up. Snow Files of the Week: "A Cop for the Killing" (1990). This is a tv movie from the "In the Line of Duty" series. These were movies based on real events, produced in the 1980's and early 1990's. Mark Snow composed to several of them a score in his trademark electronic style. It might have been music from these movies, that got Mark the job on The X-Files, since a piece of score from the "In the Line of Duty" movie "Street War" was also put into the X-Files episode "Gender Bender" from the first season. Intrada released a CD with scores from the "In the Line of Duty" movies, composed by Mark Snow, in the early 1990's. This CD is out of print, but still can be found for very reasonable prices. It features music from "Mob Justice", "The Twilight Murders", "Street War" and "A Cop for the Killing", each put together as a musical suite. Enjoy!
  14. Snow Files of the Week

    Well, it seems Mark recorded several tracks, 25 minutes of music for this album, but not the rest of the tracks. So the album was never released and it seems that Mark has lost interest in it, because the label told me, that they contacted Mark on this behalf, but never got a response. Snow Files of the Week: "Good Morning L.A./Jason's Theme" from the motion picture "Skateboard" (1978). This is a very early piece of music by Mark, back in the days, when he wasn't composing dark and moody electronic music yet. The music is very groovy and relaxed, perfect for a summer day on the beach. An album was released with the movie, which contains some tracks by Mark and 70's style Skateboard songs. It is only available on vinyl and audio cassette, maybe someday we will see a CD release too. Enjoy!
  15. Snow Files of the Week

    The other episode is "The Well-Worn Lock" from season one. And you're welcome. Snow Files of the Week: "Cortege" (1999/2002) from the "Cold Spring" sampler "The Chamber". Here we have a very rare occasion, where Mark didn't compose for a movie or a tv series. The track "Cortege" was supposed to be an appetizer for an all non-movie album called "Death...be not proud", consisting entirely of new compositions by Mark. The release date was set for spring of 1999, there was even a tracklist (Intonation, Cortege, If Hitler Had Autism, Mr Jones, Quietude and Colonel Parkinson). But apparently, that never happened, at least I coulnd't find anything concerning the album. It's not even listed on the label's website. The only thing, that was released, seems to be this track. I sent a message to the label and got a very surprising response. Mark indeed started working on the album, but he had more and more soundtrack work on his hands, that he just didn't have the time to continue working on this album. The label still has a master for the album with a running time of 25 minutes. The track shows Mark in his dark ambient mode. This is for all those dark-and-moody-loving X-Files fans. Enjoy!
