Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'The Holy Mountain' and 'The Dance of Reality' Set for New Soundtrack Releases

Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'The Holy Mountain' and 'The Dance of Reality' Set for New Soundtrack Releases
Thanks in no small part to the endlessly charming Jodorowsky's Dune, mystical Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky is as popular as ever. Thankfully, that means there's a renewed interest in his film soundtracks.

The filmmaker recently came out of retirement to direct his return-to-form, The Dance of Reality, his first movie in 23 years. Now that film's soundtrack will finally see a proper release on both CD and vinyl via Real Gone Music in association with ABKCO Music & Records.

The film's music was composed by Alejandro's son (and occasional Devendra Banhart collaborator) Adan Jodorowsky. A press release describes the music as "alternately lush and comical, brooding and wistful," adding, of course, that it's "surreal."

In addition to the new, Jodorowsky will revisit the old with a reissue of the soundtrack to his classic 1973 film The Holy Mountain. The film's music was composed by the filmmaker alongside studio musician Ron Frangipane and jazz great Don Cherry. The release will be available as a stand-alone CD and a double LP, marking the first time the soundtrack has ever received a vinyl release. It promises to include liner notes by New York Times contributor Eric Benson that include exclusive quotes from Jodorowsky himself, along with "copious production stills."

Both albums will arrive on January 6 via Real Gone Music.
