TVD Radar: Gretel & Hansel OST vinyl in stores 3/20

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Waxwork Records is proud to present Gretel & Hansel Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by ROB.

Written and directed by Oz Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter) and starring Sophia Lillis (It Chapters 1 and 2), Gretel & Hansel is a 2020 American Dark Fantasy Horror Film based on the German folklore tale Hansel and Gretel by The Brothers Grimm. The story is set a long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside and focuses on a young girl who leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. Gretel & Hansel offers a terrifying untold story to the classic fairytale.

The soundtrack by Paris-based composer ROB (2012’s Maniac, Revenge) is a haunting and hypnotic electronic soundscape that features Moog synthesizers and a mellotron. There was no orchestra involved in the creating process, as ROB played all instruments himself, except from additional cellos by his recording partner Moritz Reich.

From the composer: “The idea was to avoid the traditional musical schemes used in tales—such as the use of symphonic orchestras—and therefore find a more original and specific color, using both warm and synthetic sounds with the predominance of the mellotron and the Moog synths.

I find it essential to create melodies that we can sing or whistle (themes, ritournelle…), as, in horror cinema, it is usually the opposite, where the music rather has a tendency toward structure and abstraction. For this project, which is a film about kids, it seemed important to have that.”

Waxwork Records is excited to present Gretel & Hansel as a deluxe vinyl release featuring the complete film music by ROB, 180 gram colored vinyl, new artwork by Sara Deck, old-style tip-on gatefold jackets with satin coating, and heavyweight printed inner sleeves. The packaging, artwork, and design is a nod to classic fairytale books such as Little Golden Books.
