  • Premiere release of complete original soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith for Stephen Sommers underwater monster picture starring Treat Williams, Famke Janssen, Wes Studi, Djimon Hounsou. Paraphrasing composer: picture had elements of fun but was too graphic for adventure-style music in vein of King Solomon's Mines or the Indiana Jones movies. It had elements of suspense but where Alien relied heavily on sustained scary mood with just short bursts of violence, Deep Rising went full bore with intense action throughout. Therefore, the final score plays for hardcore action emphasising the violent monster attacks. Fans of Goldsmith reap the benefits! Resulting music has ample suspenseful sequences but puts spotlight on aggressive action. While composer's trademark keyboards play role throughout, this time Goldsmith emphasizes large orchestral pallette, elevates brass section to prima donna status, giving trumpets, French horns, trombones and tuba all manner of virtuoso ideas. Even primary "Ottoio" theme, written for gruesome monster of the same name, is usually heard in massive, unison low brass fortissimos. Powerful idea! Hollywood label issued relatively brief 33-minute disc at time of movie's original 1998 release. Intrada now releases the other half of this hour-long score! Many new cues appear but special nod goes to climactic "Not Every Day", where monster is fully revealed, inexplicably missing from original album. Here Goldsmith takes command with his signature brass-driven ostinato writing in dynamic fashion. Great cue! Also included is unused opening sequence as originally scored by composer plus subsequent re-scored version used in final production. Bruce Botnick goes back to Disney's 48-track digital session elements, which he himself recorded with Goldsmith, newly mastering entire CD in vibrant stereo sound! Exciting package prepared by Joe Sikoryak offers flipper cover with choice of artwork plus detailed notes by Jeff Bond. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    For the original 1998 Hollywood Records release of Deep Rising, Jerry Goldsmith selected from his lengthy score just ten tracks, totaling about 33 minutes. For this premiere release of the entire score, Intrada was given access to the excellent-condition original Sony 3348-format 48-channel digital session masters courtesy Walt Disney Records. Customary for the composer during this era, the sessions combined large orchestral forces, an array of electronic keyboards and a considerable percussion section spread across the Sony Scoring Stage. The 48-track recordings held not only all the orchestral sessions but complex layers of electronic overlays and sweeteners, requiring a considerable amount of remixing into two-track stereo. To create these brand new mixes of every cue, Intrada engaged Bruce Botnick, the engineer who helmed the 1998 sessions. His familiarity with the music was an invaluable resource in preparing this new CD and ensuring that all of the myriad layers were properly included.

    Listeners can now enjoy over an hour of music pulsating with the composer’s signature action writing. Complex rhythms, a dynamic low-brass theme representing the vicious undersea monsters known as the ottoio, a rousing and energetic theme for Treat Williams’ vessel, underwater suspense music, exciting and aggressive sequences for brass and strings—all delivered in vivid and punchy digital stereo courtesy the CD you now possess.

    And a quick word about that climactic track title, “E Ride.” The beloved catchphrase “E-Ticket” has been attached to those incredible “ultimate experiences” at the Disney theme parks, even after the legendary alphabetical ticket system had been discontinued. And though the Hollywood Records release used that phrase, Jerry himself originally titled the cue “E Ride.” The publishing paperwork confirmed it, and so we have identified it as such for this expanded CD presentation.

    It’s horrific and deadly action— whether above or below the water—slammed across the bow by the master of the genre, Jerry Goldsmith. Full scream ahead!
