KILLER KLOWNS FROM
This year is the 30th anniversary of Killer Klowns from Outer Space and to celebrate, John Massari, Klowns' composer, is presenting the film with a live-to-picture concert and more in Hollywood, CA, on May 19th at the Montalbàn Theater with the score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra.
But wait! There's more! On May 18th, Varèse Sarabande Records will release Killer Klowns from Outer Space: Reimagined, a new recording of the soundtrack on CD and LP. It features the film's original synth score performed by members of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, including a guest performance by composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Battlestar Galactica), new orchestrations from composer John Massari and more.
Massari told us, "The founding member of the Dickies, Leonard Phillips, and I have been conjuring up ways for The Dickies and The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra to blast the audience with a good dose of punkified three ringed orchestration!
Members of HCO are the best of the best and are longtime fans of the film themselves. We'll have some traditional and not-so-traditional instruments in the orchestra. Chief among them, a genuine theremin!
My final orchestrations are being fine-tuned in Austria under the watchful eye of Bernhard Eder.
Our technical crew worked on every major live-to-film event for film composers Michael Giacchino and John Williams."
