Just as Andrzej Żuławski's Possession is often imitated but never duplicated, Andrzej Korzynski's score for the film remains fresh, original and unparalleled in its distinctive approach over four decades on from its release. Finders Keepers puts together a beautiful package which compiles the complete cues that Korzynski composed for the film, including many which didn't make it to the film's final cut. Brooding, atmospheric and off-kilter, this special release deserves a home in your collection. 

"During the maiden voyage into an expansive vat of unreleased music by Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski, Finders Keepers Records originally presented his previously unreleased electro/orchestral/experimental score for Andrzej Żuławski's surrealist '80s horror classic Possession in 2012. These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film less than half of them made it on to the actual director's cut -- leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynski's studio.

"The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynski's career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into to synth-driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomize the well-honed techniques used in previous Żuławski scores, such as The Third Part of the Night and The Devil, which rely on his inimitable orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar.

Available once again on black 12" vinyl for the first time since its original release some 11 years ago, Finders Keepers' ongoing commitment to the important restoration of Korzynski's music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof KomedaJan Hammer, and Zdenek Liska—not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers, such as Roubaix, Vannier, and Nicolai. Duplicated and carefully remastered directly from Korzynski's original master tapes this album boasts the uninhibited studio experiments and retains the pre-cut ambience.
