Dragon's Domain Digital presents the original soundtrack recording to the 1988 Australian motion picture INCIDENT AT RAVEN'S GATE with music composed by Graham Tardif. In RAVEN'S GATE, a remote country homestead has been mysteriously, and curiously, destroyed. Then strange things begin to happen - cars start and stop without warning, the electricity supply runs erratically and pets turn nasty. It seems that some extra-terrestrial force has come to earth and is responsible for the inexplicable incidents and changes in attitudes among the characters.

Graham Tardif was raised partially in Melbourne, and mostly along the Northern beaches of Sydney. He developed his love of music at 15, and often truanted on school in order to visit the local record shop. He worked as a sound editor for a short period of time before he decided he wanted to compose music. His first major motion picture was 'A Tale of a Tiger' in 1986, and he hasn't looked back. Widely regarded as one of Australia's greatest film composers, he has over 9 films, 2 T.V. series and several documentaries to his name.

What no love for a late 80's SF flick from down under?

It is when stuff like this gets released that I decide to never give up on seeing my favourite obscure 80 and 90s scores getting a release.

Love yes, but you're not releasing it as physical CD, so who cares...

FYI, you might have missed the fact the we're releasing it in 24Bit, which is higher resolution then CD which is 16bit.

you did notice that bit of information.

FYI, you might have missed the fact a lot of people around here don't give a damn about digitals, whatever the resolution.

You can make digital only releases and keep asking for all eternity why there's no love.

If you wish to be a Luddite that is your choice....

However it might have a escaped your notice but we are currently in the second decade of the 21st Century.

Digital Downloads is the major way music is consumed today and offering it at a higher bit rate then the CD format would seem to be a good thing.

LPS are outselling CDS currently (Why I have no idea)

The format matters more to you when the music?

That seems to be what you are saying?

Ford, I'm well aware of what you're saying and don't want to argue with you about technologies. You are a professional in this business for many years and I'm sure you understand what I mean.

What I'm saying is many of us are collectors and just don't like anything else if not an original factory pressed CD you can touch and put on a shelf. Yes, the format matters. A lot.

I buy all your CD releases, I like these and I will keep supporting them. I would have bought this one as well if it was released on physical CD. But not digital.

What about burning the files onto a CDR? Voila, a physical product. That's what I do.

No. That doesn't work, because it's not an ORIGINAL factory pressed product.

I'm a Proud luddite. A 56 year old white boy still living paycheck to paycheck.

A growing amount of FSM'ers don't seem to be buying CD's much anymore. Citing the lack of good films and good scores coming out every year.

Many more opting for digital- let's face it- it's the cheap alternative, and boy do we see some "poor$" dudes on this board-always sure to mention how "poor" they are. A digital release of a brand new score is of zero interest to me and what is worse the release of an "old Favorite or never before released score on digital only. It seems so "cheap and disposable"

These clones are part of "the problem" of why we are seeing decreasing CD releases. I see a frequent amount posts where people are literally stating they don't buy physical product especially new scores from the new movies all around the world. What a load of shit- soooo many great film scores come out each year from all over the world. Many Collectors of other genres don't give a damn about prices-Ive seen guys buy a 45 for thousands of dollars and not blinking- ever. For decades I collected and was a dealer of rare soul and popcorn 45's.

There is no love for digital releases here as it is just all in the ether" to me.

Lastly, I do thank you Ford. I bought all your new releases on CD- Conrad Pope- Genius move and both Howard Blake's - AGATHA and THE DUELLISTS. I made my contribution to keeping CD's alive.

There is no doubt that if Film Scores Vinyl cost the same as CD's I'd still be buying Vinyl only. I love it that much.

No one wants to see or gives a crap your digital music collection or how many lp's or songs you've downloaded

What will the rest of you do?

We could have a long discussion about Physical vs. Digital releases.

however the bottomline is that both a CD and Hard Drive and pretty much the same thing:

A Storage Medium for Digital files.

How many of us get a CD then rip it into ITUNES or some such audio program to take our music with us so we can hear our music when we wish to in the car, at the office, etc

Digitial also allows labels to make available titles that otherwise would not get releases on CD because they flat out wouldn't sell enough to justify the costs of doing a Physical release.

if you care about the music, then however it get released is a good thing.

Just my opinion.

We working on several others right now.

The question becomes is there enough to do a CD release or should it just be a Digital one with High Bit files and Digitial booklets.

Digital is better than nothing, of course.
