COVEN - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Limited Edition Cassette
Composed & Performed by Patrick Nettesheim

Forever Midnight is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack cassette to ‘Coven’ (pronounced like ‘woven’, not like ‘oven’) - the legendary 1997 short horror film by Mark Borchardt. 

Patrick Nettesheim’s score is a brooding assortment of dreamlike synths, overdriven guitars, pounding drums and wailing choirs, all run through a charming and creepy home-recorded filter. From the opening, ominous bending bass hits to the final slow-dancing pianos, this thoughtful soundtrack conjures images of dilapidated scarecrows, haunted drive-ins and black-robed fiends - a perfect compliment to Coven’s stark black and white imagery and harrowing themes.

Mark Borchardt’s ‘Coven’ and its trialled completion are well known as the subject of the award-winning 1999 documentary ‘American Movie’, but ‘Coven’ stands on its own as a unique artistic achievement - successful as both a strong, beautiful work from Borchardt’s storied life in film and as a symbol of the triumph of creativity and drive in the shadow of adverse fortune.

As you can probably tell, it’s one of our faves.
