BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents THE KEN WANNBERG FILM MUSIC COLLECTION, a 2 CD set featuring music composed and conducted by Ken Wannberg (ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS, MOTHER LODE, THE AMATEUR, THE LATE SHOW, THE SILENT PARTNER) and including the following films: THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT, ACCOUNTING FOR THE SCREAMS and OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN. The booklet features rare production art and stills from THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT and OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN as well as notes by author Randall Larson, discussing the history of the projects.

Previously released by Prometheus Records on compact disc, BUYSOUNDTRAX Records now presents the complete score to THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT on Disc 1, newly mastered from the original four track masters. Previous album releases were mastered from a 1/4 inch album master prepared by Len Engel and designed with an LP configuration in mind. In addition to the complete score, also included are musical effects tracks designed to enhance the atmosphere of the film, as well as source music composed for the film. Presented on Disc 2 are the composer’s scores for the short film ACCOUNTING FOR THE SCREAMS and OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN.

Released in 1984, THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT takes its title from a naval military experiment that took place in 1943 at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. An old urban legend, it is believed that the U.S. Navy Destroyer escort U.S.S. Eldridge was rendered magnetically invisible or “cloaked” so as to be undetectable to enemy radar. But something went awry during the experiment and the ship became optically invisible, teleporting itself through space and time until it reappeared back in the shipyard. The U.S. Navy has long maintained the story is a hoax and no such experiment ever took place. THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT posits that several crew members of the Eldridge were transported from 1943 to the middle of Nevada desert in 1984. And their presence in our modern day threatens to rip the fabric of space and time asunder. The film is simultaneously a chase film, a race against the clock and a love story as the sailors race to get back to the Eldridge to start the Experiment over again and hopefully return to 1943 before it’s too late.

ACCOUNTING FOR THE SCREAMS was a short supernatural thriller composed by Ken Wannberg in the late 1980s for a family member and the film was never released to the public. The composer provided this rare score to BUYSOUNDTRAX Records prior to his retirement and is presented it here for the first time. The score is based on a dark waltz performed by synth and sampled voices, enhanced by jarring percussion sounds that convey a notably unsettling atmosphere. Fans of the composer’s music will feel right at home with ACCOUNTING FOR THE SCREAMS.

Released in 1983, OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN is a horror/thriller starring the great Peter Weller as Bart Hughes, an executive rising star at his company who nearly Has It All: trophy wife, young son and renovated brownstone in a prime location in New York City. When his family leaves for the week on vacation, Bart stays behind to work on a Big Project that’s guaranteed to net him a big promotion. But little does Bart know that there is one member of The Rat Race in his basement that isn’t going to quietly get out of the way on his way to the top and so the stage is set for an epic struggle of Man versus Beast. Previously released on compact disc by Prometheus Records over a decade ago, OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN has been newly remastered for this release with improved sound quality.

THE KEN WANNBERG FILM MUSIC COLLECTION is a limited edition release of 1000 units.
