This week’s Watercooler Musical Interlude is the Title Music From A Clockwork Orange, Wendy Carlos’ opening salvo in one of the most distinctive soundtracks of all time. A synthesizer version of the march from Henry Purcell’s Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary written in 1695, this piece sets the dark, futuristic tone for everything that comes after it. It’s hard to think of the film without thinking of the soundtrack which mixes Carlos’ synthesizer arrangements of classical music with straight up classical recordings.
Counting the Christmas holiday, it was a pretty big week for new movies. Did anyone make it out to see anything worth talking about? Lay it on me.
