The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

John Car­pen­ter’ s syn th score for Hal­loween, writ­ten in three days, eas­ily ranks along­side Wendy Car­los’ work for A Clock work Or­ange and Louis and Be be Bar­ron’ s ground-break­ing For­bid­den Planet sounds cape as one of the great elec­tro scores. Car­pen­ter re­mains char­ac­ter­is­tic ally mod­est about his achieve­ment :“It’ s very crude com­pared to mod­ern stan­dards. I like to think I have grow na lit­tle bit as a mu­si­cian. I didn’ t have the great­est chops in the world. You have to for­give me. But I could record some­thing that was moody. That was about it.”
