The Omega Productions Records is an independent label, specialized in editing French B-movies "French'xploitation" soundtracks.



The "productions" of Omega are primarily the protection of a French heritage unfortunately too ignored for many decades, for lack of editions and concerns. However, beyond the cinematic "trash" aspect to which they are related, these compositions mix a wide range of sounds, from string score to concrete music, through electronic or electro-acoustic
experiments. A domain just waiting to be (re) discovered, within a process that is both scientific and cultural.

The composers are numerous, flirting with the music bookseller (Daniel J. White for Montparnasse 2000, Christian Bonneau and Yan Tregger for Musical Touch Sound) as well as the music of horror and pornographic movies or more generally the mood of time. A climate conducive to musical creation, leading to many different and (very) varied catalogs. A true modern archeology is being set up, in order to get the best of these little bits of the history of French film music.

Under the most favorable circumstances, these catalogs are stored in archives of composers, producers or sometimes their relatives in the form of magnetic tapes. The edition is then simpler, most often claiming to include unpublished and other studio falls with the best possible sound quality. Sometimes the musicians or producers themselves admit that they no longer have the bands due to the storage or contractual conditions of the time. These ones are in a state of waiting, and can reappear with the greatest of luck (we can mention the recent and emblematic case of the movie Les Chemins de Katmandou).

Here finally comes the most dreaded case of publishing, where the bands are officially destroyed or erased. If we judge the sound score much too important to be discarded, our efforts will ultimately focus on the only remaining source, the international version of the film (optical track on 35mm copy or 1/4" analogue tape). We started our label in these conditions for our first volume, Le Lac des morts vivants.

The Omega Productions Records is committed to provide the best CD editions possible with respect to the audio restoration or the container. Our booklets of 12 to 16 pages offer many liner notes of speakers (composer, producers, actors or specialists) and unpublished photos, in collaboration with rights holders and other private collectors. We pay particular attention to the supports and boxes as well as the shipments, and the quality of our services.

100% "Made in France", from restoration to pressing, ensuring an entirely French quality.

The editions are restored and developed by Lucas Giorgini, discographic and graphic designer of the collections.
