Dragon’s Domain Records presents a new release of the original soundtrack to FROM BEYOND. FROM BEYOND features music composed by Richard Band (RE-ANIMATOR, GHOST WARRIOR, TROLL) for the 1986 science fiction/adventure film directed by Stuart Gordon, adapted by Brian Yuzna from the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, starring Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Ted Sorrel and Ken Foree. The music has been newly mixed and mastered from the original 24 hour track elements.

Written in 1920, Lovecraft’s short story is told from the first-person perspective of an unnamed narrator who is associated with scientist Crawford Tillinghast, who creates an electronic device that emits a resonance wave, allowing the experimenters to perceive planes of existence outside the scope of our accepted reality. When they turn this machine on, they not only perceive the horrific creatures that occupy a parallel dimension that overlaps their reality but Crawford then realizes that the effect works both ways, and allows the denizens of the alternate dimension to perceive and then feed upon those observing from our dimension. FROM BEYOND expands on Lovecraft’s concepts beyond the original short story, developing a storyline true to its original author’s intent and substance but developing into a modern story in which Tillinghast (Combs), here the assistant to the Resonator’s inventor Dr. Pretorius (Sorel), is similarly accused of the scientist’s murder when Pretorius is killed, by creatures from another dimension, Crawford insists, resulting in his immediate admittance to a mental hospital. After psychiatrist Katherine McMichaels (Crampton) and detective Bubba Brownlee (Foree) take the case, they escort Crawford back to the laboratory in an attempt to corroborate his account by re-creating the experiment.

The score for FROM BEYOND was created with a mixture of early synthesizers and a small orchestra of around 40 string players and some percussion. Band made a point of combining the electronics with the orchestra in an integrated manner, rather than using orchestra and the electronics as separate entities.

 

For this new release of Richard Band’s FROM BEYOND, Dragon’s Domain Records has gone back to the original 24-track master and had engineer Matt La Point completely remix the score from the ground up, under the supervision of composer Richard Band, digitally remastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland, including liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of the composer. In addition to the eighteen tracks that make up the score’s track order, this new release of FROM BEYOND includes three bonus tracks. The goal on this one was to bring out a lot of detailing that had been obscured in the original mix and everything that came afterwards and also take advantage of advances in audio technology that have come out since the original Mix which greatly improved the score on a sonic level.
