Sci-fi/horror director John Carpenter earned nearly as much acclaim for his music as for his filmmaking. He crafted a distinctive sound dominated by pulsing, arpeggiated synthesizers and atmospheric washes that echoed his stark visual style. From his beginnings as a film student in the early '70s, Carpenter scored all but four of his films, as well as the television horror trilogy Body Bags. After The Ward, Carpenter began making music with his son Cody (aka Ludrium) and godson Daniel Davies. Incorporating elements of Carpenter's electronic-based scores like Halloween and Assault on Precinct 13 as well as later, more guitar-driven ones like Vampires and Ghosts of Mars, the trio's improvisation-based songs became Lost Themes, which Sacred Bones released in 2015. ~ Heather Phares
