Alec Cheer’s Night Kaleidescope is an incredible modern techno-based score to an underground psychedelic detective vampire indie drama. So there. There is little history here as this is a new release, but this is simply an amazing modern score to a 2017 film one may never have heard about (directed by Grant McPhee). What sets this score apart is its clinical post-modern feel, with influences including Mica, John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, even whispers of the 1980s, as well as a musical feel a little like the classic Drive (2011) soundtrack. Yet with all these influences, composer Cheer somehow manages to create a new work that sounds unlike any other. It’s dark, bewitching, mesmerizing, ear-catching and even “banging” in parts. Look, it must be good, otherwise Jonny Trunk would not be pressing it. And with a spelling mistake too. Full color eye-catching minimal sleeve.
