Description

As the maiden voyage into an expansive vat of unreleased music by Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski, Finders Keepers Records presented his previously unreleased electro/orchestral/experimental score for the surrealist 80s horror classic, Possession in 2012. These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film less than half of them made it on to the actual director’s cut – leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynski’s studio. 


The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynski’s career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into synth-driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomise the well-honed techniques used in previous Zulawski scores, such as Third Part Of The Night and The Devil, which rely on his inimitable orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar.

 

Finders Keepers' ongoing commitment to the important restoration of Korzynski’s music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof Komeda, Jan Hammer and Zdenek Liska – not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers, such as Roubaix, Vannier and Nicolai.

 

+ Available for the fist time since its original release. 
+ Duplicated & carefully remastered from Korzynski’s original master tapes, this
album boasts the uninhibited studio experiments and retains the pre-cut ambience.

+ Updated & re-presented as part of an ongoing Andrzej Korzynski archival series in celebration of the celebrated composer following his untimely death in 2022.

Editions

• Black 12” vinyl.
• Remastered directly from Korzynski’s original master tapes.
