Intrada Hears “Whispers in the Dark”

with one comment

Intrada’s latest release, announced Monday, is another totally unreleased gem of a score: Thomas Newman’s music to Whispers in the Dark.

The 1992 drama, which starred Annabella Sciorra, Anthony La Paglia, John Leguizamo and Alan Alda, is a dark and sexual thriller about a psychologist whose patient may be dating a serial killer. While the film was not a smash – Alda in fact was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor – the score by Newman (whose great Galaxy Quest was just released by La-La Land) is among many great works he would complete in the early ’90s, including Scent of a Woman and The Shawshank Redemption. Initially planned for a soundtrack release alongside the film’s period of distribution by Varese Sarabande, Intrada maintains some of the original, intended album presentations on this disc. (The film featured a lot of the music ultimately edited and reorganized, but this release presents a good mix of Newman’s original intentions and some creative new presentations.)

In all, the complete score, from the original digital session masters, is here, and yours to order after the jump.

  1. Galaxy Quest was by David Newman, not Thomas.
