Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok - OST

    Former Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Lego Movie) is the perfect choice for Taika Waititi's radical third chapter in the THOR series. Skillfully weaving the sonic landscape of the high fantasy genre with otherworldly synth, Mothersbaugh has produced one of the best scores of the entire MCU.

    Bait - Original Score

      Invada Records announce the release of Mark Jenkin’s drone-heavy score to UK film ‘Bait’.

      Mark Jenkin amazingly directed, edited and composed the score himself for the resolutely DIY yet hugely successful film. ‘Bait’ has since received four British Independent Film Awards nominations for Best Indie Film, Best Director, Breakthrough Producer and Best Editing and is one of the highest grossing and most successful indie films of 2019.

      The score is pressed on blue vinyl and comes housed in an extra thick deluxe spined sleeve with double sided heavyweight card printed insert, featuring stills from the film. There is also a digital download card included.

      Jenkin: “I started playing around with some drone ideas as a distraction from the editing of the film; something to take my mind off the cutting,” he says. “I was experimenting with delays and reverbs and decay and I began to feel that there was a nautical theme to the sounds that I was making.

      “An original drone was created very separate to the film but then I realised it might work as a score. From there I created a set of about 12 drones (eight of which are on the album) which were mostly variations on a theme and I began to place them in the edit to match the score. The drones work very well with the sounds of the sea, which is pretty much omni-present throughout the film and makes it easier to embed a drone without it being a big ‘musical’ statement.”

      I Lost My Body - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

        Invada Records release Dan Levy’s score to Netflix animated feature ‘I Lost My Body’ on vinyl.

        Levy is one half of the French electro-pop duo The Dø, along with Olivia Merilhati. He also produces for S+C+A+R+R who is featured on the album.

        “Music is a powerful thing; it can be an emotional experience that surfaces new ideas about reality and truth,” says Dan Levy of his experience scoring the film. “Working on ‘I Lost My Body’ was the first time I scored an animated film, and I was seduced by the magic that emanated from the intense and painstaking work that goes into creating a film like this.”

        An unforgettable visual journey from director Jérémy Clapin, ‘I Lost My Body’ follows a severed hand as it escapes a Parisian laboratory and treks across the city in search of the rest of its body. The film won the Nespresso Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the first animated film ever to do so.
