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.
Secret Window is a film based on a story by Stephen King, and starring Johnny Depp and John Turturro. I'm not going to say anything about the film other than I saw it once, and I found it entertaining, but this film will possibly appeal more to people who create subjective art and who can relate to what the main character is going through. I'm not an artist, so I guess I give this film 3 stars out of 5. Although this is classified as a psychological thriller, the music fits in perfectly with the theme we have going this month.
The music was originally slated to be composed by James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer (who collaborated on two fine scores for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight). When Howard was replaced, Zimmer dropped out of the picture as well. So instead we have American composers Philip Glass and Geoff Zanelli with scoring duties. I love Glass' film music. He is without a doubt a genius. I have been so impressed by him that I will listen to anything he produces, because I know that more than likely it will be awesome. If you are familiar with Glass' work you'll no doubt enjoy his contribution here. Zanelli I am not as familiar with other than his score for the viking vs. space alien flick Outlander. His tracks here are good, but not as interesting as those by Glass. Overall, this is a very cool album with some truly terrifying moments. Enjoy.
