MIRACLE MILE OST to be reissued on double CD




‘There are 70 minutes to the end of the world.

Where can you hide?’

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the soundtrack release of MIRACLE MILE, featuring music composed by Tangerine Dream (SORCERER, THIEF, RISKY BUSINESS) for the 1989 thriller written and directed by Steve De Jarnatt  (CHERRY 2000), starring Anthony Edwards, Mare Winningham, Mykelti Williams, John Agar, Lou Hancock, Kelly Jo Minter, Kurt Fuller, Denise Crosby, Robert DoQui, O-Lan Jones, Claude Earl Jones, Earl Boen, Diane Delano, Brian Thompson, Jenette Goldstein and Raphael Sbarge. MIRACLE MILE is presented on two CDs, newly remastered, with previously unreleased music and exclusive liner notes.

MIRACLE MILE begins as a sweet love story between Harry (Edwards) and Julie (Winningham) and then suddenly takes a left turn when Harry answers a ringing payphone outside of his favorite coffee shop. The distraught voice on the other end of the line blurts out that he’s in a missile silo and the launch codes for the missiles have been entered. The bombs launching in retaliation from the other side will hit in about 70 minutes. When word gets out, gradually at first and then countrywide, panic sets in and Harry must seek a means to get out of town, but first he needs to find Julie. The film becomes a race against time to reunite the couple and find a way to reach safety before it’s too late.

MIRACLE MILE was the product of Cold War-instigated fears that writer/director Steve De Jarnatt had grown up with during the late ‘50s/early ‘60s. Those nightmares germinated in his imagination and eventually coalesced into the story told in MIRACE MILE. Unlike other films that took nuclear holocaust as their starting point to focus on a story of post-apocalyptic survival and recovery, De Jarnatt was more interested in exploring what would happen in the hours just before the missiles landed and how people would be affected. The Miracle Mile is a retail district in central Los Angeles located on a 1.5-mile stretch of Wilshire Blvd. Initially developed in 1928, the Mile was home to trendy shops, the historic La Brea Tar Pits, Hancock Park, and an impressive assortment of historic Art Deco buildings. By the 1980s it had become fairly run down, with some of its most cherished structures giving way to apartment complexes; but an influx of important museums and office centers injected new life into the district giving it a renewed cultural interest that would provide a unique background for the film. Setting the film on L.A.’s real Miracle Mile was always a part of De Jarnatt’s central concept.

When he was writing the screenplay for MIRACLE MILE, De Jarnatt was listening repeatedly to the pioneering German electronica band Tangerine Dream’s first film score, SORCERER (1977), impressed by its progressive mix of rhythm, drones, and minimalism. By 1989, Tangerine Dream consisted of founder Edgar Froese and classically trained keyboardist Paul Haslinger, who had joined the band in 1985, replacing Johannes Schmoelling. Founding member Christopher Franke had left the band in 1987, leaving Tangerine Dream as a duo when they were invited to score MIRACLE MILE. Prior to 1988, most of the band’s film scores were composed and recorded in founding member Christopher Franke’s Berlin studio. But with Franke’s departure, they relocated to Froese’s studio in the Viennese countryside of Austria. During the composing process, De Jarnatt flew to Vienna to work with the duo in Froese’s studio working with the duo to refine the score. From the moment the film begins to play out in real time, the beat of the music creates through its insistent drive an almost subliminal but palpable tension, increasing in exigency as the time runs down.

MIRACLE MILE was originally released on compact disc in 1989 on Peter Baumann’s Private Music label nearly 30 years ago. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring MIRACLE MILE back into the marketplace on 2 CDs, newly remastered by Digital Outland and including previously unreleased music. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of composer Paul Haslinger and writer/director Steve De Jarnatt. The original soundtrack cues on Disc 1 represent the score as delivered by Tangerine Dream to the director, essentially as heard in the film’s mix. These tracks have never been released commercially before. Disc 2 contains the original album version, which is distinctly different in tone and texture from the actual score as heard in the movie.

Special Note: The first 100 Copies purchased directly from Buysoundtrax.com will be autographed by composer Paul Haslingerr and Director Steve De Jarnatt

MIRACLE MILE is a limited edition release of 1000 units. MIRACLE MILE will begin shipping the week of  August 14th, 2017.

Info from the EASTGATE page:

The one and only AUTOBIOGRAPHY of TANGERINE DREAM written by EDGAR FROESE himself, more than 600 pages, authentic, sincere and free-spirited - the extraordinary adventures of a band and especially its head and founder, Edgar Froese, who were writing history together with their electronic innovations in a fossilized landscape of music in the seventies.

Edgar's narrative style in "FORCE MAJEURE" is very straightforward and uncompromising reflecting his 'storm and stress' period in the sixties. At the same time his language is humorous and picturesque - a language you are already familiar with from his musical compositions. This book is exciting from the beginning to the end even for people who don't know Edgar or Tangerine Dream. You will read quite a few never told stories as well as a straightforward correction of many rumours circulating among fans through the years. Edgar will also give credit to those people who did help the band on various levels with their creative support and warm-hearted advice. So everything will come out of one hand – an extraordinary pioneering story about the suffering and longing of someone who started just to create some progressive sounds and ended up writing history.

This autobiography does not only inform about a career of a band, but Edgar mainly provides an insight into his life, the life and work of his band, their numerous concert tours through the world, their thinking and acting, their inspirations, cooperations and conflicts. Some strange episodes with some colleagues who gave the band a hard time as well as hundreds of encounters and episodes with many interesting and well-known personalities like Salvador Dalí, David Bowie, Richard Branson, Andy Warhol, John Peel, Andy Summers, Jimi Hendrix, Oliver Stone, Jim Rakete, Stevie Nicks, Ridley Scott, Michael Mann, Brigitte Bardot etc. - just to mention a few. More than 45 years on stage and 16 years of scoring in Hollywood have offered that much content and destiny that it could have been sufficient for two lives.

Edgar had been writing this autobiography for more than seven years and invested every single minute of time for this project besides his numerous concert tours and album productions. The time has come to release it to the public and you will have the opportunity to realize this project by supporting your favorite band. EASTGATE will now start preselling this book in order to finance its printing and translation into English language (which will take about six months). The pre-sale also enables the EASTGATE team to estimate the quantity of the books to be printed and above all it ensures them their independency towards the publishing companies which are so far very interested in this project but with their own conditions. This would mean that they would automatically receive a right of co-determination which would destroy the book's authenticity. Edgar wouldn't accept this.

All participants of the presale profit from a reduced presales price and the first 500 buyers will additionally receive a FULL CD called LIGHT FLUX of at least one hour length containing some new unreleased Tangerine Dream tracks including those three tracks of the special EP. (The full CD and the EP can also be bought in our shop after release of the book.) ALL buyers taking part in the PRE-SALE after the 500 full CDs have gone will nevertheless receive a SPECIAL EP with three tracks (3 chosen tracks from the the full CD) until the day of the end of the pre-sale!! The book will be made of a hardcover, will have more than 600 large-sized pages with many so far unreleased photos etc. etc. Another highlight: There will be a lottery among all presale buyers and 20 of them can win an invitation to the book release party.

There will be a German and an English version of the autobiography. Later on we don't exclude to work together with a publishing company to release the book also in further languages, but the first edition will definitely be with EASTGATE. Afterwards the book and its content will not and cannot be changed anymore by publishers.
