Help Me Find It: Beyond the Black Rainbow soundtrack

Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010) was panned by many a movie critic as an incoherent, self-indulgent mess. Which is more or less a fair assessment, but what a beautiful mess. Alongside the Kubrick-esque dream imagery is a brilliant soundtrack by Jeremy Schmidt. Anyone know where this music can be obtained? MP3 or FLAC format, preferably.

  1. Only information I found was Schmidt mentioning that he hoped it would be a vinyl release some day.

    If nothing else you can listen to the music of Klaus Schulze & Tangerine Dream, as Jeremy Schmidt clearly used them as strong inspirations for his soundtrack.

    1. I've heard bits of TG and Schulze. What albums do you recommend?

    2. From Tangerine Dream there is no reason to start with anything but 'Phaedra'. As for Schulze's solo work, I'd go with 'Irrlicht' or 'Moondawn'.

      I think it is great what Jeremy Schmidt did with this soundtrack. I hope it does get a formal release, I'll definitely buy it.

  3. I enjoyed the hell out of that movies, despite its obvious flaws.

    Schmidt also releases music under the name Sinoia Caves. The Enchanter Persuaded is an amazing album, Evil Ball in particular is an awesome track. It's very similar to the BtBR OST.

  4. I found this page when googling Beyond the Black Rainbow OST. I ****ing LOVE the movie (no idea why people who otherwise share my esthetic sense deem it mediocre). Its music is amazing and I want it so bad. Please contact me if you find any means to get it! I will check out the artist mentioned here that are supposed to somewhat overlap the musical expression from the movie. Hotmail: petternerman(at)hotmail.com.

  5. Here's a very clean version of the song used in the trailer on SoundCloud! I'm not sure if it's a direct rip from the movie but it sounds pretty damn good to me :)
