Mike Vickers' Dracula A.D. 1972
14-May-2009 - BSX Records, in association with GDI Records, has released Dracula A.D. 1972, directed by Alan Gibson, and with Christopher Lee returning as Count Dracula, and Peter Cushing as Professor Van Helsing. For the music, Hammer’s music director, Philip Martell, chose to go in a different direction, seeking a more modern sound to go along with the film’s modern approach and so Mike Vickers was brought in to compose the music for the film. Vickers’ music for the film is a mixture of orchestral acoustics with electronic instruments, incorporating modernistic, pop-jazz styled rhythms, Gothic tonalities with snare drum, organ and cymbals, reworked with horns, saxophone, bongos and drumkit. The booklet contains a new interview with the composer, along with contributions by Caroline Munro.
