  • World premiere release of Basil Poledouris score for John Milius actioner set during Vietnam war, starring Danny Glover, Willem Dafoe, Brad Johnson. Poledouris excelled when working for close friend Milius. Current score is prime example! Muscular action and melody combine. Neat architecture: Score opens with reflection, progresses with melody, degree of power. Action rears, intensity of music increases. Finally, symphonic march takes center stage, brings everything to rousing finish. Intrada presents entire score from original Dolby SR-encoded two-track stereo session mixes, courtesy Paramount Pictures. Two alternates appear as extras. World premiere of complete John Beal trailer music brings CD to dramatic close. Basil Poledouris conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain! SOLD OUT!

  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    Flight of the Intruder was originally recorded on 2" 24-track analog tape encoded with Dolby SR. After the sessions Poledouris and engineer Tim Boyle mixed everything down to 1/2" three-track stereo tape, still using the Dolby SR process. Twotrack stereo mixes were later made as safeties for storage on both 1/4" tape and DAT.

    For our premiere presentation of this powerful score, Paramount Pictures provided us with access to all of the elements. We chose the three-channel mixes as they were clean, crisp and complete, with the Dolby SR format yielding an unusually quiet signal-to-noise ratio for analog tape. This format, in fact, was the composer’s own preference. We encountered it on other projects of the era with Poledouris, and he stated he would always choose a multitrack analog recording with SR over any digital one.

    The entire score is presented in film sequence, with a couple of alternate takes featured as “the extras.”

    So suit up, grab your helmet and join Basil Poledouris with his cockpit full of musicians for this exciting Flight of the Intruder.
