Texas Chainsaw Massacre Music By Colin Stetson
After 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to his old stomping grounds of Harlow, Texas to terrorize a new generation.
Now playing on Netflix, the David Blue Garcia-directed film arrives as a long-awaited sequel to the 1974 horror classic and the ninth installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre slasher franchise. The storycenters on Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), as they endeavor to start an idealistic new business venture in the ghost town of Harlow. Their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents — including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge
GRAMMY Award®-winning saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and composer Colin Stetson, who is no stranger to the art of the jump scare, created a suspenseful heart-stopping score that will be sure to get you when you least expect it. The 23-track collection finds Stetson expertly layering a multitude of sounds and instruments to create a hauntingly brutal, industrial soundscape. Of the album, composer COLIN STETSON says, “It has been an honor and just way too much fun getting to musically world-build in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre universe. As with the subject matter and our iconic villain – all sputtering engines, metal scraping metal, faces on faces – the music is the sound of an old and decrepit abattoir, stirring to life and rattling off the dust after a great many years idle; made with Contrabass Saxophones, Tibetan bowls, and a hearty dose of wild turkey hunting calls; all twisted, stretched, and wearing masks of their own.”
