Torrent description

Wendy Carlos - Tron (Original Soundtrack)

General Information

This is an image file from the retail CD of Wendy Carlos' 1982 Tron Movie
Soundtrack. It contains (uncompressed) the 100% of the information contained
on the original retail CD. Its format is .cue/.bin.

I previously uploaded this very same CD, but the image file wasn't
MAC-friendly, so here it's again, I hope it's easier now for Mac users.

You can use a tool to mount this image on your PC and use it virtually as a
regular Audio-CD, or either burn it with your regular burnig soft on a CD.

So, if you prefer a .FLAC, .MP3 or whatever other audio format, now you have
the basic tool to encode the CD and upload it for others, that'd be OK for me.

This review has been a long time in coming, due to both my procrastination, and
the length of time it's taken for Tron to be released on CD (and properly on
DVD). In the day, both the movie and the music were the seminal works of their
time: one with groundbreaking animation and computer generated graphics and
another integrating synthesized music with a full orchestra. Since its release
in 1982, the movie has inspired many, from filmmakers, animators, and scientists
all the way to musicians, designers, and artists. One of the more particularly
innovative items from the film, the music, has been the one item languishing in
obscurity. A "digital" film (in many respects), Tron had not had the advantage
of releasing its music on the most popular format of today, that being a compact
disc. Listeners in 1982 were treated to cassette tapes and vinyl LPs for their

There were hopes of a release back in the early 1990's when composer Wendy
Carlos was asked by Disney to re-master her surviving tapes for a collector's
edition laser disc release. However, the only isolated example of her hard work
was relegated to a section of the special features of the discs. Upon the rise
of the Internet, I was able, under my own fruition, to contact Carlos's
representatives and asked the status of the tapes, since Ms. Carlos has become
quite expert at the fine art of "baking" master tapes. As it came to be, the
Tron masters were some of the first bit of this work she had actually completed,
however, there were rights issues with Disney (as it has been for many of their
works by other composers for their films), and a future release was in legal
limbo that would take more than a technical achievement to overcome. Fast
forward a decade or so, and, according to Ms. Carlos, Disney called out of the
blue about preparing a release to accompany their special edition DVD set. No
sooner said than done, we have the release that is the subject of this review,
which, is the same as the LP released in 1982 (in content) plus three additional

For the casual listener, one could easily write the sound off as dated, due to
the over saturation of electronics in modern (if you can call it that) music.
However, to fans, and aficionados of classic "electronic" music (akin to
comparing CDs versus LPs), one cannot overlook the warmth that analog synths
bring to the overall atmosphere of the score. An interesting item mentioned in
the liner notes (and on Carlos' website), is that the score was to be split
along a full orchestra, representing the "analog" flesh and blood world, and the
synthesizers, representing the "digital" computer world. The only superbly
discernable crossover (outside of live percussion) between the two occurs during
the "Creation of TRON", a blend of orchestra, chorus, and electronics, "Miracle
and Magician" and "End Titles", which occur, coincidentally when the analog
human world comes in contact with the digital computer world. At times, some of
the pieces are dissonant in sound, but it helps provide a transition between
some of the major melodies and overt passages in the score. However, if one
looks back on Carlos' entire recording career, the solo works as well as the
coverage of Bach, this approach wouldn't sound as strange as it may appear.

The most recognizable themes from the score (some of which even my co-workers
have a penchant for humming incessantly all day at times) are from three pieces
on the album, "TRON Scherzo", "Theme from TRON", and "The Light Sailer".
Although the themes that comprise these three pieces do show up earlier in the
score, these tracks represent a coming together of each musical idea (in
correspondence to the plot progression) that had been given birth in other areas
of the film. Carlos mentioned that she had intended two thematic motifs to be
used: one a militaristic sounding theme, corresponding to the MCP and it's
cohorts, and a second theme, based on love story between Tron (Bruce Boxleitner)
and Yori (Cindy Morgan). Although there is a "Love Theme" track, the full theme
is best realized during the "End Titles" piece where every major musical point
is brought to a resolution. A nice touch on that track is the addition of the
large pipe organ, which really acts as a successful middle ground between the
synthetic and organic elements of the score.

The 20th Anniversary DVD set is truly worth the investments if you grew up
admiring the film. For those that find the CGI special effects of today as
something that has become second nature, it's also a history lesson as to how
far we've come since those days. In fact, I purchased the latest advance in CGI
animation the same day I picked up the DVD for Tron as a comparison, which was
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Both shared a few central ideological themes,
but other than that they are entirely different films, both in look and feel as
well as the technology. Tron sparingly used CGI effects since it took so long to
generate even the most simple computer animation, whereas the latter film was
completely computer generated, even down to the actors within. One could only
wonder what will happen within the next 20 years. As for the music, one could
say it's gone backwards, from introducing electronics in the production of film
scores to add something unique, to where the more popular scores are completely
generated within a computer (which I have a tendency to dislike). However, for
Final Fantasy, composer Elliot Goldenthal chose the classic route with a full
orchestra and very little, if any electronic support. You can use Tron as a
history lesson, and example of a genre, or let it stand alone as it may, but I'm
sure you'll find it as fun and as interesting as I have for the past 20 years.

For reasons unbeknownst to us (but knownst to Disney), the soundtrack to their
1982 film "TRON" completely missed the digital revolution. You would think that
a movie whose whole premise is digitally-grounded would have been an early
adopter of compact disc technology. But it wasn't. I still have my old LP
version of the soundtrack, but it certainly doesn't fit in my car's CD changer,
and my tape of the soundtrack is old and over-used.

Well, just in time for the movie's 20th anniversary year, Walt Disney Records
has finally brought the soundtrack to the CD format, and believe me, it was
worth the wait.

The album has been completely remastered with the full assistance of the
composer, Wendy Carlos. The CD's liner notes include a recent interview with
Carlos, who details the creation of the unique digital/orchestral score that
accompanies the on-screen computer animation. Being something of a novice when
it comes to modern music composition, many of the terms sailed clear over my
head, but she managed to provide more than enough context to make her
descriptions make sense.

On to the tracks: All the tracks from the original LP soundtrack are here,
arranged in an order reasonably consistent with the progress of the film. What
makes this soundtrack so intriguing is not so much how it evokes memories of the
film (which it certainly does) but how the merger of sythesized music with the
work of a symphony orchestra came across so well. Considering the movie itself
was a merger of traditional film techniques with cutting-edge (for the early
80s) computer animation, the fact that the soundtrack is similarly composed
makes it that much more engrossing.

As owners of the original soundtrack might recall, 80s supergroup Journey
prepared two tracks (one song, one instrumental) for use with the movie. Both
tracks are in the movie, but there's nothing to call attention to them; check
the arcade scenes in the film and you'll hear them. They do seem somewhat out of
place, especially the anacronistically-named "90s Theme," but not so much that
you'll skip them.

An added bonus on the CD is three previously unreleased tracks; Carlos mentions
in her interview that they were intended for the original soundtrack, but were
left out because of lack of space on both the LP and cassette formats. The first
track is an early "draft" of one of the action themes, the second is a piece
that was used in the film but not on the old album and the third is a simple
single-instrument version of the "TRON" theme (being the last track on the disc,
it's a welcome cool-down). The liner notes go into greater detail about how
these tracks came to be.

The fact that this disc has never been available before is enough of a selling
point. If you're on the fence, however, you would do well to pick up this
exceptional compilation that was some twenty years in the making.
