'Lost Themes' is being billed as the debut solo album from John Carpenter, the master director and soundtrack composer who's crafted a string of iconic scores for his movies dating back to the late '70s (Halloween, Escape From New York and The Fog among them). Carpenter says Lost Themes "was all about having fun." He adds: "It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I'm used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they're supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It's just fun. And I couldn't have a better set-up at my house, where I depended on (collaborators) Cody (Carpenter) and Daniel (Davies, who scored I, Frankenstein) to bring me ideas as we began improvising. The plan was to make my music more complete and fuller, because we had unlimited tracks. I wasn't dealing with just analogue anymore. It's a brand new world. And there was nothing in any of our heads when we started other than to make it moody."
