SadEyes, what was the difference between the pilot that was aired and the original one?

SadEyes, what was the difference between the pilot that was aired and the original one?

I guess it was partly re-shot and re-cut. But I have to look it up in the booklet, getting back to you. :)

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 Records, limited to 1000 copies. Enjoy!

Snow Files of the Week: "Main Title/Having a Baby/All about Ned" from the score to the tv movie "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!

Again, thank you for the post. I really do look forward to it every week. It's like a surprise since I never know what I am going to listen to.

I'm glad, that you like it. :)

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 create some very touching moments.

Fans will recognize the violin sound from "MillenniuM" at once, although it was replaced in the movie with a real violin player, at least at the end of the movie. The score got a digital release and a very limited release as a 2-CD-Set (together with "Wild Grass") in France. Enjoy!

Snow Files of the Week: "Caroline at Midnight (Main Theme)" (1994). This tv movie is a romantic thriller, from which only the Main Titles were released on the sampler "The Snow Files". Fans of THE X-FILES will recognize the theme immediately. In the same year, Mark used it for the teaser scene of the second season X-Files vampire-episode "3". It is therefore also included on the "The Truth and the Light"-CD, named "Carmen Amatorium Ex Arcanum", which literally translated means "Secret Song from Loved Ones". Enjoy!

For comparison, the version from THE X-FILES:

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 some years ago and is still available there, now for only $4.98. The album also has music from the fourth Chris-Carter-show, HARSH REALM, on it.

Enjoy!

I have The Lone Gunmen and Harsh Realm album. I assume this is the same one even though the image is different. Sure enjoyed listening to it. Thanks.
