elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
The Dead Zone is the one David Cronenberg film not scored by Howard Shore, but by American composer Michael Kamen (April 15, 1948 – November 18, 2003). Based on a Steven King novel of the same name, the film is grim, somber affair that has become a classic, at least to me. The Dead Zone is unusual for a Cronenberg movie, especially considering it sits in his filmography between Videodrome and The Fly. The link is that all three films are about a man dealing with a transformation of some kind.
Kamen was not really known in film music at the time, but was popular as an arranger in pop and rock, which comes through on some of his later scores. The Dead Zone, however, is an orchestral score of pure melancholic bliss (if you can dig that), punctuated by sheer horror. Be careful with this one though kids, especially if you haven't taken your prozac today.
