Snow Files of the Week

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!

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: "Grow up Superboy/Ferris Wheel" from "Smallville" (2001). The show ran for ten seasons, but after season 6, Mark left the show and his former music editor Louis Febre took over for the remaining three seasons. It was Mark's decision, since he was so busy doing the music for "Smallville" and "Ghost Whisperer" at the same time, with additional movies in between (like the second X-Files movie in 2008), that he just wanted to have more time with his family.

The music for "Smallville" shows Mark again as a master of haunting themes and melody. His distinctive sound is easy to recognize. A digital album was released with music from the show, before La-La-Land Records released a 2-CD-Set, containing all tracks from the digital album, as well as a second CD with even more music from the show. It also has tracks by Louis Febre from the later seasons. The CD is limited to 3000 copies. Enjoy!

Smallville end title is one of my non Chris Carter show favorites. Glad Sad Eyes posted some Smallville music.

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. If you're interested, they still have some copies, signed by Mark, left. Enjoy the ride back to the 80's!

I remember watching the pilot about ay ear ago, and series composer Michael Hoenig was credited, suggesting Snow's score was rejected. I didn't check to hear if any was still in there.

Most likely not. As Snow states in his Liner Notes for the album, the original pilot never aired. The reworked version was then scored by Michael Hoenig.
