In honor of our Filmosopher's conversation with Ted Burghoff about Director Ridley Scott's career we're featuring dialogue and soundtrack music from the film Blade Runner: The Final Cut. The sonic electronica Vangelis created for this 1982 seminal film is as good as any I've ever heard- even 30 years later.
Also hear 2 songs from the compilation "Future Memories"; 2 Depeche Mode songs: Tanghetto's electro-tango(!) cover of "Enjoy The Silence" and William Orbit's "Random Carpet mix" of "Walking In My Shoes". Also featured, a song from Two Loons For Tea, who have played the cultural district in Fairfield. We'll hear a cut from the 1981 electronic classic "BGM", by YMO. Originally Yellow Magic Orchestra, YMO were 3 gentlemen from Japan, including Ryuichi Sakamoto. Among other projects, Sakamoto went on the do the soundtrack with David Byrne to the film The Last Emperior. I'll post the playlist at kruufm.com. ENJOY
