Loud Robot and WaterTower Music are excited to announce the June 25 release of the soundtrack to “Lisey’s Story”, the Apple Original series based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King - and adapted by the author himself - that follows Lisey Landon (Academy Award winner Julianne Moore) two years after the death of her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon (Academy Award nominee Clive Owen). A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to Scott that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind.
The Lisey's Story (Original Television Soundtrack) features music by the highly respected Chris Clark, who composes and produces under the mononym “Clark”, and whose vibrantly wide scope of musical offerings ranges from TV projects (‘The Last Panthers’, ‘Rellik’, ‘Kiri’) to film (‘Daniel Isn’t Real’), to collaborations on contemporary dance projects with choreographer Melanie Lane. Further, Clark has an extensive inventory of remixes for the likes of Thom Yorke, Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Max Richter, Battles and Nils Frahm; and he has released thirteen albums of his own music along with a multitude of EPs and singles.
Clark described his mindset on approaching the music: “It was a pleasure writing music for this show, I had to inhabit quite extreme polarities of emotion. Lisey’s Story is just as much about fragile human relationships as it is traditional horror. I love this thing in film, you get to write so much material, and you have to keep the code totally efficient and versatile. The music needs to be an elastic shapeshifter. It makes you interrogate the material, you always have this burning question ‘ok music (as if the music is a person) you can do this, but can you do this, this, this this and this’. It’s a bit of an obsessive quest, working in film suits my nature.
You also have to kind of become a character in the film yourself. Interpreting what you see, projecting back into the picture, as music, being guided by imagining the interior life of the characters, and letting what you create seep into that. It’s rather addictive. The Long Boy will haunt me forever.“
Fans of “Lisey’s Story” and Clark won’t have to wait for the soundtrack release to hear the show’s theme though, as Clark’s Lisey’s Story (Main Title Theme) is now available at all digital retailers.
