Death Waltz Recording Co., in conjunction with Back Lot Music, is excited to present the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to MA, featuring a terrific synth score by award-winning composer Gregory Tripi.
Tate Taylor’s excellent psychological horror film MA finds Octavia Spencer offering suspicious generosity to local high school students, all the while displaying warning signs — a classic tale of what happens when something seems too good to be true. Composer Gregory Tripi’s fantastic, mostly electronic score is laced with the type of ambient beauty, ominous energy, and berserk passages that a story this unhinged requires. He uses analog synths, along with elements such as a live cello, pitched wine glasses and an ukulele (made from a bento box) to craft a score that, like Spencer’s Ma character, lulls you in with a false sense of security before stopping you cold with a deeply crushing sense of terror that hits you at your core.
Featuring all new artwork by Sara Deck and pressed on 180 Gram Colored vinyl. Limited to 500 numbered copies. The album is available digitally on streaming platforms via Backlot Records.
