Ouija: Origin Of Evil - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Now Available
October 17, 2016
The Newton Brothers recorded the score in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row at Ocean Way Studio in a restored church—an intentional choice to reflect that one of the principal characters of the film is a priest. Numerous music icons have recorded in the converted 100-year-old Gothic revival church including Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Megadeath and Blake Shelton.
The studio has the capacity to record an 80-piece orchestra, as well as house the largest circa 1970s Neve console in the world. For Ouija: Origin of Evil, the composers utilized the acoustical space to create a singular score. In addition, to stay true to the film’s era, they intentionally avoided using any modern instruments. In regards to instrumentation, The Newton Brothers stated: “Strings, woodwinds, piano, water phone, percussion and various live-recorded Foley noises were incorporated for added depth and texture.”
