JOHN CORIGLIANO - Altered States Soundtrack LP
Directed by Ken Russell, Altered States focuses on Professor Edward Jessup’s research conducted in isolation tanks under the influence of psychoactive drugs like mescaline, ketamine, and LSD. The film is also the film debut of actors William Hurt and Drew Barrymore.
This is a deluxe re-issue of the now classic 1980 score by Pulitzer Prize winning, Oscar winning, and five time Grammy winning composer, John Corigliano. Audio has been sourced from the original masters, and this new LP re-issue has been officially and enthusiastically approved by the composer. Album artwork is created by Australian artist duo, We Buy Your Kids, and the heavyweight old-style gatefold jacket features a deluxe Glitter Coating. Exclusive liner notes have been provided by John Corigliano and are featured on a 12”x12” insert. The re-mastered-for-vinyl Grammy nominated score has been pressed to 180 Gram Purple and Violet “Hallucination” Swirl vinyl and sounds incredible.
