I have started this a couple of weeks ago on our Mark Snow Facebook Page. I will upload a track (or more tracks together) from different scores by Mark Snow every week, calling it "Snow File of the Week". I think it's a nice opportunity to get to know Mark's music better, besides THE X-FILES or MILLENNIUM. So I start the Snow Files with the track "A Message of Faith" from his score to the 1997 tv thriller "Night Sins". Of course, the score has the familiar sounds, that we already know from Mark's work on THE X-FILES. "Night Sins" has a beautiful main theme, which gets its finest presentation in this track. The album was released by BSX Records and is limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

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

Wow, what a variety of sounds, and yes, very haunting, eerie, and if there was a soft and warming section, I didn't hear it.  Lots of "wonder" in the sounds. I have 3 Suites on my S5 Promo album,

I'd have to go back and listen to the suites, because I can't remember which one I used. But you may be right about that. 🤔❤️ Snow Files of the Week: "Delete/Branches-Angels" from "MillenniuM", e

Had to go to Vimeo to get it to play. Oh how I love Mark Snow's music.

I had a vague memory that Mark Snow had classical training, so I looked him up on Wikipedia. He attended the Julliard School of Music, which is a prestigious school.

I don't know that much about music, but apparently music in a minor key sounds sad, and music in a major key sounds happy, and sometimes composers can transition from one to the other. I'm not able to listen to music and identify the keys and the transitions, but I think the description of "haunting" does describe what Mark Snow is doing in expertly manipulating our emotions. Whenever I listen to his music, it often sounds sad but with an underlying motif of hope. It does take talent and expertise to be able to do that.

Millennium is still his best work as far as I'm concerned. Mark's music is addicting.

I think they will, too. ;) As far as I'm concerned, most of his work for thrillers and stuff like that sounds like music from The X-Files and MillenniuM, since this is his sound. But he also did some very beautiful orchestral work, too. But have no fear, more "music in the key of X" will come along...;)

I wish we had a section where we saved all the member and fan created compilation albums. I have just a few. If we do somewhere, please post a link.

Snow File of the Week: "Love Theme (aka "Rose's Theme")/Memories" from "Conundrum". While still working on the second season of the X-Files, Mark Snow composed the score for this 1995 tv thriller. It's got some of Mark's familiar X-Sounds, combined with haunting female vocals. The album was released by Buysoundtrax Records, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

They originally remained online for a limited period of time. With the exception of World Serpent, they were removed back in 2001.

      I recently bought Haunted on Blu-ray as part of Kino Lorber's going out of print sale for $8.99 along with The First Power (a Milleniumistic horror movie starring Lou Diamond Phillips).  Haunted lasted for 11 episodes and only the first six aired on UPN.  It follows Frank (Matthew Fox)- an ex-cop turned private detective- who has a near death experience after getting stabbed by the guy (Simon) he believes responsible for the disappearance of his son two years ago.  After his near death experience, the door to the other side isn't closed and he is haunted by ghosts including the ghost of Simon.  The TV show has the same color palette of Millennium and a score by Mark Snow.  I wish Haunted lasted longer, but Matthew Fox went on to do Lost
