There are DVD Times reviews of both Tartan Carriages: [url=http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=66977]"KTL edition"[/url] and [url=http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=66976]"Image Makers edition"[/url]
[quote:8f880bd378]Whereas the 2-DVD The Phantom Carriage / The Image Makers Edition of the film has a relatively conventional silent-movie score, this single-disc Phantom Carriage: KTL Edition has an entirely different modern experimental music score by KTL - a collaboration between the musicians Stephen O’Malley of SUNN O))) and Peter Rehberg, aka PITA – that really couldn’t be any more of a contrast to Matti Bye’s arrangement. Waves of electronic industrial drones and creaking guitar sounds seem to echo the mental states of the characters, their inner torments, confusion and mounting horror rather than follow and synchronise to external actions, pushing the events closer to acts of madness. Inevitably, this exerts a powerful presence of its own over the film, but being more abstract, it perhaps opens the film up to different interpretations, depending on the individual’s response to it. It’s evidently not going to be to everyone’s taste and may be quite overwhelming for anyone used to more traditional silent scores. Call me a wimp, but I found it most effective and less distracting when played at a lower volume than it is perhaps intended, and it does certainly have a way of keeping you closely drawn into the film on an unusual level. It is presented in full uncompressed PCM stereo, which is of CD quality. [/quote:8f880bd378]
I'm intrigued, but maybe not enough to buy the same film twice.
