It is interesting (but not surprising) that the soundtrack for ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 is only 26 minutes long. In my own defense, it was all the time I could afford in the recording studio. I had to compose and perform a few mood pieces that I could use again and again through the movie. This was 1976 - the days of ultra-low-budget movie-making. The entire cost of Assault was $100,000. You can imagine how much we spent on the score.

Before recording ASSAULT ON PRECINT 13's music, I thought of Bernard Hermann and his ability to achieve maximum impact from minimum means. As I recall, I had about 3 days to complete the score. I remember having great difficulty with a quiet piano sequence to be played over the death of Nancy Loomis' character Julie. The main title theme was relatively easy after we established the beat. Ice Cube told me 25 years later that the beat always comes first.

ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 is a truly minimalist score. I never imagined that anyone anywhere at any time would listen to the music on its own away from the images and narrative. I'm grateful for this CD. I hope you enjoy it.

John Carpenter

The vocal sounds too clean and lacks the grainy grittiness of the original film. Strangely, the final two notes seem to pitch down even though in the original the final two notes pitch up. This just sounds wrong to the ear, and puts a bad taste in your mouth right at the end of the album, since it clearly isnt accurate to the original film. The total CD runs only 63 minutes, so it is a mystery why the Dark Star section isnt complete
