Product description

Product Description

Ori Release '92. Composed by Jerry Goldsmith. Performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra.

One of Jerry Goldsmith's great strengths as a composer is his ability to reflect the psychological profile of a film. This gift came in handy when he agreed to score Paul Verhoeven's erotic thriller Basic Instinct (1992). Featuring the streamlined, John Barry-esque aesthetic that Goldsmith perfected in the 1990s (substituted for the composer's dense, harmonically complex style of the 1960s and 1970s), Basic Instinct is a languorous, sultry effort of passion without emotion. The icily seductive mood is established immediately with the "Main Title," a flawless integration of orchestral and electronic writing (no fewer than ten synthesisers were incorporated into the texture). Goldsmith's polished surfaces are contrasted by driving, rhythmic passages of movement and suspense. The entire enterprise works on a sub-textual level, expressing the director's themes before the audience is even aware of them. For his dramatic insight and compositional ingenuity, Goldsmith was rewarded with yet another Oscar nomination. --Kevin Mulhall
