DEEP IN TO HEAT 2017

immagine-87As far as this soundtrack, in my view Michael Mann’s masterpiece, is concerned it is really possible to talk about “Miscellaneous Artists”. To be true, it all began to find out the beautiful piece The Last Lagoon by William Orbit (famous English, electronic music producer and arranger) and after several years of searching I could understand, quite totally, the very core of this film music.
Michael Mann maximises the emphasising of the visual impact together with the sound one by drawing profusely from famous and brillant authors such as the Kronos Quartet and Elliot Goldenthal (Alien 3).
Other tracks are omitted in the score official version, maybe both for room and royalties reasons, but anyway used in the film.
It is specifically these latter that I am going to consider mainly by listing aside the context they have been matched with:

– Get Up To This – New world beat
(Vincent at the disco’s office discover who “Slick” is;probably the Disco’s Background music fading…)
– Gringatcho Demento – William Orbit
(background music when Waingro is looking for a job in a bar) – track from Strange Cargo III album
– The thrill is gone – BB King
(During the ball of Vincent and Justine…)
– Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra Boulez conducted by Ligeti
(the Platinum robbery) track from the namesake album
– The Monkey King William Orbit
(Chris, Neil and Michael mislead the guard by gesticulating) track from Strange cargo III
– Arabic Agony James
(L.A.P.D. Smile!…a picture from above)
– In November – David Darling
(Neil finds out from some documents who Vincent Hanna is) track from Cello album
– Late Evening in Jersey – Brian Eno
(Chris and Michael in the underground car park hack into the computer altering the bank alarm /Charlene and Dominique ask for the police safeguard)
– Black Cloud – Steve Roach /Elmar Schulte performed by Solitaire
(Waingro meets Roger Van Zant/ Donald stops what he was doing…) track from Ritual Ground album
– Celon – Lisa Gerrard / Pieter Bourke
(News of the bank robbery on TV)
– Will Gaines – Eric Clapton
(Neil devises with Nate a new escape plan / Vincent and Casalas visit Hugh Benny)
– The Last Lagoon – William Orbit
(Vincent says about Neil: “… He’s is still here…”I feel it” … Neil runs after Eady on the hill at dawn)
– The Mighty Limpopo – William Orbit
(Chris understands Charlene’s wave and leaves) – track from Strange Cargo I album

The piece The Last Lagoon by William Orbit (taken from Strange Cargo II album) replace Run Up Hill scene written by Elliot Goldenthal and included in the official soundtrack.
The same is true for the track Refinery Surveillance (scene of the surveillance in the refinery) afterwards replaced by three pieces: The Monkey King by William Orbit, In November by David Darling mixed with Arabic Agony by the James, this latter is taken from Wah Wah album.
Celon by Lisa Gerrard is used in the film but omitted in the soundtrack edition; all the three pieces by Lisa Gerrard are included in The Mirror Pool album.
New Dawn Fades, a shorter, not sung version, is used during the motorway chase between Vincent and Neil and it is a remake by Moby of the namesake piece by the Joy Division; the song integral version is available in the album I Like to Score by Moby.
Armenia by the Einstűrzende Neubauten (taken from Drawings of Patient O.T. album) used for a few seconds during the first “sceptical” meeting of Neil and Eady will be present also in other ”Hard” parts of Heat as well as in “The Insider”; the piece Late evening in Jersey by Brian Eno has recently been recorded on a compilation of unpublished works called Curiosities Vol. 1 (Opal Records).
Top O’ The Morning To Ya written by Eric Schrod, Leon Demant and Willie Dixon is played by the House Of Pain (taken from the House of Pain album) and it is in background during the meeting between Vincent and the informer Richard Torena in the Disco Club; By The Time I Get To Phoenix written by Jimmy Webb is probably droned by Vincent Hanna during the informer Albert Torena questioning.
Will Gaines by Eric Clapton is a piece taken from the soundtrack of Rush, a 1991 film directed by Lili Fini Zanuck.
As far as Ultramarine by Michael Brook is concerned, there is a special, unreleased version used when Vincent Hanna, in an understandable fit of hysteria, throws away his TV set at a traffic light.
There are two versions of the End Title composed by Moby and called God Moving Over the Face of the Waters: the “soft” one included in the official CD and the one included both in the single That’s When I Reach for My Revolver God Moving Over the Face of the Waters Heat Mix and in the above quoted album I like to score.However, the one in the film is slightly different from both these latter.
The pieces composed by Elliot Goldenthal and produced by Mathias Gohl are listed below among the others; the composer has made use, for some pieces, of the collaboration of the Kronos Quartet, the contemporary string quartet already known for collaborating with Philip Glass and with the The guitar orchestra Deaf Elk leading Page Hamilton of metal band Helmet

1 SHOWDOWN GLAEKEN VANISHES [Walking in the Air] Tangerine Dream,comes for the end sequence of Michael Mann’s THE KEEP and was recorded straight from my laserdisc on analog mode to my Teac or Philips cd recorder.Great tune ,full of innocence and dread, is a shame that for rights problem the soundtrack , the Movie itself (in some format different by VHS and Laserdisc) and this track composed by Howard Blake for the Snowman isn’t yet released,Producers,Paramount wake up found a deal god###…however enjoy the recording is pretty good!”
2 THRU METAMORPHIC ROCKS – CONFRONTATION I had mixed this two tracks because the style of both is similar,first comes from Tangerine Dream Force Majeure’s album one of most pinkfloydish 80’s album of the krautrock band from berlin,the second  track here on a rare unreleased edit version despite Thief’s elektra album track is a great cover of Pink Floyd Confrontably Numb named CONFRONTATION composed by the patient and fond Craig Safan(however You can read the story of this song arund my blog,just search thief) performed by the great bassist Alan Davey(look on wikipedia who is)..the track was just found on net after long research thank you to who posted it.
3 FREEZE aka Red dragon reprise,this track was sent to me by Stephan Piter a man from France very fond of The Keep(vainly he’s trying to sensibilize the head of this movie for a decent release on dvd) anyway I really loved this track because is a short survolted version of Klaus Schultze’s Freeze used on the great one MANHUNTER with Seiun by Kitaro totally missed from the Mca and last one released album.
4 THE HOUSE IN ROSE VALLEY come from THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS and was used for some beautiful seconds during Lacorsse scene in the beginning of this Historical gem.The composer Phil Cunningham is a talented scottish folk celtic musician and composer; 
he really deserve more attentions in what he does till now.

5 PROMENTORY is the famous Gael by Dougie Mac Lean adapted , performed ,composed by Trevor Jones for the end sequence of LAST OF THE MOHICANS,but here is not what you found on the original cd soundtrack is what you heard on the Movie and that’s amazing different great arragements longer beautiful,magnificated, eased,beated, ok just listen and you will understand.

6 DEATH LETTER by Johnny Farmer is here remixed by Organized Noise and used on ALI during the meditative Hey Champ’s METRO/Subway sequence , I loved this track,my sister love this , I was lucky to found on net but you can found it on outstanding New Beats From The Delta (2000) Fat Possum Records  amazing album,another lesson by Michael.
7 ROUND 8 STRING is an outstanding additional orchestral track by the great Bill Brown used during the final ALI’s Fight,check BILL website and you will be amazed… this tune really enter in ur mind!

10 A RODA The Wheel by the bravo Brazilian Composer Antonio Pinto, come from Walter Selles’s Abril Despedaçado a movie based on the book by the same name (original Albanian title: Prill i Thyer) written by the Albanian writer Ismail Kadare, about the honor culture in the North of Albania.This track was on Collateral and really brings some feelings of despair and hope.Pinto has great skills on use of electronic ambient orchestral and traditional sounds,quite unique,straight to heart.
11 THE LAST LAGOON was composed by english musician and producer William Orbit and you can found on STRANGE CARGO II album, this electronic ambient track edited over HEAT ‘s run uphill scene bring mood in to a special way.The beauty of HEAT beside on the story,images and music all your senses are catch by this factors, this flick change my life.

16 BEAM by John Powell was inspired by one of great Francesco Lupica’s compositions ( Beam Sweeps) and used on Malick’s Thin red line soundtrack,Michael Mann used on PUBLIC ENEMIES and It was outstanding,I mixed this with the end sequence of HEAT recorded directly from the movie, where the track  GOD MOVING OVER THE FACE OF THE WATERS by Moby found it’s real shape(ok just add some echo)..I think both mixed created something of quite amazing.
17 SET ME FREE by Dungeon East and Wild[Whild] Peach here on extended version (longer than The version appeared on ALI II soundtrack) is produced by Lisa Gerrard and Pieter Bourke and is a soulish song pretty great used on the end sequence of ALI..I don’t know more is just an amazing piece of music.
