Tangerine Dream’s Peter Baumann and Edgar Froese on their Sorcerer score. From Contemporary Keyboard magazine, April 1981. The image above is the Italian soundtrack LP. Thanks to Jacob’s Tangerine Dream blog.
Peter Baumann: “The soundtrack itself, we like, but we didn’t like the way it was used. We think that if it had been used the way we thought it should be used, the way it was composed and felt, then it could have fit very well into the picture. But the way it was put in was very different from the way we saw it before. The film was disappointing.”
Edgar Froese: “We really loved the script, which we were qiven before the film was shot. We were asked to compose the music without seeing the film. I think Friedkin is one of the greatest directors, but the final cutting of the film and the way the last five minutes had our music fade in and out seemed totally impractical to us.”
