A Scanner Darkly: Soundtrack Vinyl Released & Screenings in London

ScannerVinyl

The original soundtrack to Richard Linklater’s superb animated adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s A Scanner Darkly will be released on vinyl (marbled wax) for the first time via Fire Records and Lakeshore Records.

The film is set in a near-future American dystopia characterized by high-tech surveillance and mass drug addiction. Starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey, Jr., and Winona Ryder, the film was shot digitally and then animated using interpolated rotoscope, a technique where the original footage is traced over frame by frame.

The score by Graham Reynolds featuring the Golden Arm Trio was originally released on CD by Lakeshore Records, and the vinyl was released on August 4, 2017. You can order the vinyl edition here.

Upcoming screenings of the film in London – October 21st at The Prince Charles Cinema and October 22nd at Genesis Cinema – will be accompanied by a live music demo and Q&A with Graham. Get your tickets before they’re gone!
