MOTION PICTURE SCRIPTS

Copyright 1985 Todd West

SUBSCRIPT A 1/85
Soundtrack to the Movie Script "Tattered and Torn"

While Theoria jammed live, I worked in private on a couple of soundtracks to accompany scripts I had written for screenplays. The 4-track of these solo demo sessions remains available on tape today. Very Psychedelic Atmospheric

Contents:

Tattered and Torn
Escape into the Underworld
Changes
Dimensional Interface
Electric Boathouse
Clip Element
Fortress of Peril
Pursuit and Interrogation


RITUALS OF THE SPRING EQUINOX (Feedback Symphonic Piece) 5/85

This is a guitar feedback symphony written for metaphysical practitioners. I took about three months with a 4-track recorder doing bits and pieces on full-moons and appropriate planetary settings to get it right! The original 4-track recordings are still available today. This is true atmospheric industrial.

Contents:

The Calling
Manifestation
Enter The Realm
Drawing the Circle
Looking Through the Well
The Bells Toll
Ride the Silver Mare
Return of the Beast
Eve Of The Sabbat
Gypsy Caravan
LOAB


MONOTHEISM 6/85

I returned with a blast of volume and energy the next month with an album I wrote overnight in an intense jam session. I added a good round of feedback harmonies to smooth off the grind. I didn't scream as much on this one.

Contents:

In Dfferent Directions
Relentless Promise
Superficial Dawn
Time Passes On
Temptation
Sweet Sugar Lover
Harmonic Overture
Quisanourfe
Graveyard Contamination


INSIDE THE CIRCLE 7/85

The mother of all metaphysical albums, I experimented with theme music and wrote a accompanying synapsis of a screenplay for this one. Wicked 'n' heavy, Inside contains a plethora of sounds and expanded music theory. A couple of songs were added to the set-list.

Contents:

Eve of the Sabbat
Free Loader
Lift the Barriers
Seance
The Gathering
Release The Phantoms
Lost Guardian
Inside the Circle
Sound Seclusions
Conjurement Applications
Subjections


SPELLNOCTURNAL 9/85

Around this time many of the alternative clubs in Atlanta were closed or closing, and speedmetal and hardcore were beginning to enjoy commercial success. Through Underground Records I was beginning to hear more simplified punk influences and upstart techno-industrial bands. On the inside things were changing, on the outside the scene stagnated. Everybody was complaining, so I paid no attention and kept on writing and playing whenever I could.

Contents:

Sympnotic
Triangle E
The Bitch Strikes
Spellnocturnal
Espionage
Rocks We Turn
Rock N Roll Rocker
Destination
All Sights Seen
Final Testimony


ANOTHER FINE DAY OF DREAMING 10-11/85

Nice grooves with a laid-back attitude prevail here, but there's enough high octane kick in here to cook! I created Another with the pretense that diversity was making a comeback. Didn't ever play any of this live, but should have.

Contents:

Burn the Airwaves
Poor Little Daddy's Fool
Ten Stories High
Pool of Passion
God of Rock
Caught in the Seams
Tears of the Clouds
Heaven on Earth

SYLLABIC FUSION 12/85

Definitely grindcore industrial, and meant to be that way. I threw in a punk epic at album's end to really screw some heads up. The backlash against commercialism is beginning to peak.

Contents:

Legions Shall Follow
Unstability
Arsenic Lace
Shut Up!
Fame and Fortune
Septicidal Divisions
Eccentric Impulse
No Self Pity
Idiot
Canoza Grave Opus 3
