‘Mad God’ – Waxwork Records release vinyl for stop-motion epic
30 years in the making, Oscar-winning visual effects artist Phil Tippet (Star Wars, Starship Troopers) finally released their stop-motion animated sci-fi epic crazy god.
Now, wax discs announces today that they are giving the crazy god Original Film Soundtrack by Dan Wool the vinyl treatment!
“Mad God is a live-action stop-motion hybrid horror film written, produced and directed by Phil Tippett. The film follows a tall figure shrouded in a vest and gas mask known only as The Assassin as he descends into a ruined, hellish world. In his possession, the assassin has a map of the world and a suitcase with a bomb he has been tasked with detonating behind enemy lines in the desolate world.
“Visual effects virtuoso Phil Tippet (Jurassic Park, Star Wars, RoboCop, Indiana Jones) along with a host of dedicated filmmakers have spent 30 years creating this artistic masterpiece that defies genre and invites each viewer to derive individual meaning from the piece. crazy god this is what happens when creative collaboration continues after a project is “done.” It’s a beast of a movie that was born from crazy, dedicated and visionary minds.
“Dan Wool was brought in to score crazy god in 2009. Due to the nature of the animation, there was no audio or dialogue to accompany the image given to Wool. This, combined with the film’s script, motivated Dan Wool to compose exclusively based on how the images made him feel, creating a unique relationship between composer and viewer. His scoring style opened up a level of vulnerability and a sense of perspective within the characters. Not to say the score isn’t terrifying at points, but it’s also hopeful and penetrates a level of dark fantasy that makes crazy god more than a horror movie.
“Waxwork Records is delighted to present the music of Phil Tippett crazy god as a deluxe double LP featuring Dan Wool’s soundtrack with 180 gram colored vinyl, deluxe packaging, heavy gatefold jackets with matte coating, booklet with detailed liner notes by Phil Tippett and Dan Wool , and more !
