Blackstar (Original Score)

by Celldweller & Klayton

Mailanka Klayton has very broad musical influences, evidenced by the many masks he wears (Celldweller, Scandroid, etc) and I don't think I've ever heard an album that's quite adventure in an soundscape quite like this one. I discover something new every time I listen to it. I highly recommend it if you'd like a cross-section of Klayton's talents. Favorite track: On the Surface of Scardonia.

Patrick Maiwald Fans of SCANDROID should not skip this - this was Klayton's first full-length venture into the realms of retro/synthwave awesomeness. Even without the accompanying book, this mostly instrumental gem will transport you directly into a world not far from Neo-Tokyo. Klayton is Celldweller is Red is Scandroid is Circle of Dust... Favorite track: Patched In.

Audrey May I had an idea similar to this while I was writing my first novel, a playlist that went along with the story.
Needless to say some tracks from this score and many other tracks from Celldweller and Scandroid are on the playlist I use while writing or creating artwork.

The music of Celldweller has always sounded as though ripped from the pages of a sci-fi epic. As it turned out, there was a narrative behind the sounds, slowly coming together in Klayton's head. Now, the mastermind musician/producer has teamed up with award-winning author Joshua Viola (The Bane of Yoto, Nightmares Unhinged) to put that story on paper. Blackstar is the thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take fans to the worlds only hinted at in the album Wish Upon A Blackstar. Alongside the book, Klayton is creating the Original Score to accompany the story, composed of over an hours worth of cinematic atmospheres to transport you directly to Central, The Outlands and the world of Rezin and Elara.

The Blackstar Score shifts across a sonically diverse landscape, from '80s New Retro, dark cosmic ambiance and even hybrid guitar and synthesizer vocal tracks with lyrics inspired by the novel to give you an unearthly throwback to the science fiction of old with modern production that could only come from Klayton. The album plays out just like the score of your favorite films, with more focused pieces like the brooding unease of “The Undercity” and the grandiose and transcendent track “The Vaults of Re:Memory” or the longer, drone pieces designed to help you float away like in “Echoes of Time” and “On the Surface of Scardonia”. Listen to the introspective score while reading the book, or use it invoke a new cyberpunk energy into your own life.
