Music Video of the Day: The Shining Main Titles, covered by Kevin Bias (2016, dir by Kevin Bias)


For today’s music video of the day, we have a cover (by Kevin Bias) of the main title theme from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.  As I’ve often said on this site, The Shining is one of my favorite horror movies and I think it has one of the best scores to be found in a non-Italian horror film.

This is taken from Bias’s own description of the video on YouTube:

Written by Wendy Carlos & Rachel Elkind
Cover of the original from the opening credits of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film ‘The Shining’.
Equipment: Alesis Ion, Ensoniq Sq2, OP-X PRO II emulation software

I pre-recorded my own sound effects and ambience which are not reflected in the visuals in the video. All of the visual takes seen in the video are the takes heard in the audio and mixed using Sonar X2.
