Death Waltz referred to this score as one of the finest modern scores they have heard in a very long time, calling it a “monstrous, huge sounding record that references John Carpenter, Goblin, Stevlio Cipriani, late 70s prog and early 80s electronic music all the while with its feet firmly in the present day.”
Room 237 is a documentary that explores interpretations of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film The Shining.
- To Keep From Falling Off
- Multiple Of Seven

From composer Jonathon Snipes:
Kubrick’s film was scored in large part with pre existing classical recordings, but the score for Room 237 has taken as its inspiration the elegant but quirky film music that accompanied low budget horror movies in the 1970s. Composers Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson utilize a combination of vintage and contemporary analogue synthesizers, as well as acoustic instruments to create an atmosphere that is at once both haunting and funky.
