    Snow Files of the Week

    Thank you! 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!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: Suite from "The X-Files", episode "Detour" (1997). In this season five episode, Mulder and Scully investigate the mysterious disappearance and murder of three men in the Apalachicola National Forest in Florida. Attacked by a human-like creature that seems to blend in with the surrounding forest the agents get lost in the woods and try to survive the night. Mark Snow provides an eerie piano theme for the setting and his trademark dark soundscapes. The music is taken from the third 4CD box set with X-Files music, released by La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 3.000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "M. Magdalene/Divine Daughter" from "MillenniuM", episode "Anamnesis" (1998). This is one of the two episodes in the entire series, where Frank Black takes a step back and leaves the stage for his wife Catherine. She teams up with Lara Means to investigate the possibility that a schoolgirl experiencing visions may be biologically descended from Jesus Christ. Mark's music fits the religious tone of the episode. There is a soft piano theme for the schoolgirl and etheral choir work to accompany her visions. Also, the sampled flute sound from the episode "Luminary" returns in this score. The tracks are taken from the second volume of MillenniuM music from La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 2.000 copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Midnight Arctic Walk/Walking To Shore" from the tv miniseries "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" (1997), starring Michael Caine as Captain Nemo. For this score, Mark used a small orchestra and combined it with some of his electronic stuff. The music again shows, that Mark can write quite some tune, even big and epic. Some of it reminds me from time to time of John Barry and his sweeping melodies. The score was released on CD by Prometheus Records and is sold out, but you can still find some used copies. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Main Title/Having a Baby/All about Ned" from "Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All" (1994). This score shows Mark's orchestral side, combining beautiful themes with sweeping strings and a little bit of Americana. The album was released by Milan Records and still can be found for reasonable prices. It's definitely worth it. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Suite from the Pilot" from the tv show "Dark Skies" (1996). Mark Snow composed the score for the pilot, but was not further involved with the show. Michael Hoenig (former Tangerine Dream member) took over scoring duties for the rest of the show. The growing success of the X-Files back then was surely something, that got Mark involved. It's no surprise, that he made his score sound like something from the X-Files. This suite was included on the score album with the music by Michael Hoenig, released by Perseverance Records, limited to 1000 copies. The CD is sold out. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    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.COM, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

    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!

    Snow Files of the Week

    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 psychotic Dr. Fabricant, which then turned out the be more Lucy Butlers musical mark ("The Surgeon"). And Mark also incorporated some classical music into his score. "Alpine Page" includes a melody from Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture", which also appeared in the X-Files episode "Post-Modern Prometheus". The tracks were released on the second volume of MillenniuM music from La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 2.000 copies. Enjoy!

    That's strange. Just checked it again on my computer and my phone and it works on both.

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: Suite from "The X-Files", episode "Requiem" (2000). This episode is the season finale of the seventh season. There was a realistic chance back then, that this could have been the final season of the show. So the creators took some loose ends, like the story arc about Mulder's sister, and brought them to a conclusion. "Requiem" shows Mark again on top of his game. Beautiful piano themes, suspense and a big finale show that Mark still put his heart and soul into the music, even after seven seasons and by then one movie. The music was released on the first volume of X-Files music by La-La Land Records. The set is limited to 2.000 copies. Special thanks to my friend Danny (aka Nightwalker) for the suite. Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Prologue and Main Title/I’m Pregnant/End Credits" from the tv movie "In the Line of Duty: Smoke Jumpers" (1996). An elite group of firefighters jumps from helicopters to extinguish fires. One firefighter must choose between his love for his family and his addiction to life-risking danger. Mark composed a heroic score for orchestra, which unfortunately suffers a little bit from the typical small orchestras in 90's tv movies. Nevertheless there is a noble main theme and lyrical sequences for the family scenes. One track from the score was already released in 1997 on the sampler "The Snow Files". Dragon's Domain released the score last year, paired with Mark's score to the tv movie "The Little Kidnappers". The CD is limited to 500 copies. Enjoy!
