John Beal has faithfully created a 31-minute concert suite of music based on available recordings from the "X-Files" TV series. "I selected what I felt to be the best of Mark's techniques from the show, and created a suite which would simulate the experience of an episode from start to finish" Beal said. "I tried to be as true to Mark's incredible sense of sound-scape and the wonderful way he introduces classic film scoring techniques into this totally new form of musical composition," said Beal.
Both Mark Snow and his music editor, Jeff Charbonneau, provided personal input to allow Beal to be as faithful as possible in recreating the music for this suite. "John has been very sensitive to the sound of the X-FILES music, in terms of the sound design," said Snow. "He has really captured the essence of those first years, where a lot of the music was heavily minimal, atmosphere/ambient oriented."
