The Omega Productions Records is an independent label, specialized in editing French B-movies, cult "French'xploitation" soundtracks and musical librairies.



The "productions" of Omega are primarily the protection of a French heritage ignored for many decades, for lack of editions. However, beyond the cinematic "trash" aspect to which they are related, these compositions mix a wide range of sounds; from string score to concrete music, through electronic or electro-acoustic experiments. A domain just waiting to be reclaimed, within a process that is both musicological and cultural.

The composers are numerous, flirting with the music bookseller (Daniel J. White for Montparnasse 2000, Christian Bonneau and Yan Tregger for Musical Touch Sound) as well as the music of horror and pornographic movies or more generally the mood of time. A climate conducive to musical creation, leading to many different and (very) varied catalogs. A true modern archeology is being set up, in order to get the best of these little bits of the history of French film music.

Under the most favorable circumstances, these catalogs are stored in archives of composers, producers or sometimes their relatives in the form of magnetic tapes. The edition is then simpler, most often claiming to include unpublished and other studio falls with the best possible sound quality. Sometimes the musicians or producers themselves admit that they no longer have the bands due to the storage or contractual conditions of the time. These ones are in a state of waiting, and can reappear with the greatest of luck (we can mention the recent and emblematic case of the movie Les Chemins de Katmandou).

Here finally comes the most dreaded case of publishing, where the bands are officially destroyed or erased. If we judge the sound score much too important to be discarded, our efforts will ultimately focus on the only remaining source, the international version of the film (optical track on 35mm copy or 1/4" analogue tape). We started our label in these conditions for our first volume, Le Lac des morts vivants.

The Omega Productions Records is committed to provide the best CD and vinyl releases with respect to the audio restoration or the packaging. Our CD booklets of 12 to 16 pages offer many liner notes of speakers (composer, producers, actors or specialists) and unpublished photos, in collaboration with rights holders and other private collectors. We pay particular attention to the supports and boxes as well as the shipments, and the quality of our services. All our Long-Play are released on 150gr black vinyl.

Since ref. TOP-011CD and following a will of a circuit as short as possible by respect for our composers and listeners, please find our products exclusively in the following physical and digital stores: www.theomegaproductionsrecords.com/distribution.

100% "Made in France", from restoration to pressing, ensuring an entirely French quality.

The editions are restored and developed by Lucas Giorgini, discographic and graphic designer of the collections.

Vol. V - La Morte vivante / La Fiancée de DraculaPhilippe d'Aram pour Jean Rollin, Opus 3 & 6 • TOP-011CD



As a music player inseparable of the universe of Jean Rollin, Philippe d'Aram composed for The Living Dead Girl a partition both dark and melancholic. Twenty years later, the similar sounds of Dracula's Fiancee – from percussion to synthesizers and string pieces – will echo it. This musical polyvalence serves perfectly the images of the master of the fantastic French style.

Straight from composer's original master tapes, this edition contains for the first time the full score of The Living Dead Girl, including three unpublished tracks. With the help of Daniel Gouyette, Dracula's Fiancee is published for the first time on physical media in its full version.

The 16-pages booklet includes bilingual (French / English) internal notes by Philippe d'Aram and an introduction by Lucas Giorgini, as well as numerous shooting pictures from the director's archives. This edition also offers two reversible covers.

Limited collector’s edition of 500 copies with a postcard.

"Nouvelle vague horrifique" collection:

Vol. I - Martyrs • Seppuku Paradigm • TOP-012LP / CD / D



Directed in 2008 by Pascal Laugier (ten years before his latest footage, Ghostland), Martyrs is without a doubt the most controversial french horror film of its decade. Beyond the symbolism of its subject or the hyperrealism of its special effects, the movie only represents the love between two friends, within a more and more dehumanized society.

The score composed by the Cortés brothers results from the vision of its director, sometimes cold and austere, sometimes organic and evend melancholic. Thought more by its creators as a concept album, rather than a simple sound illustration, the soundtrack ends with the famous title Your Witness, with pop-Floydian accents. The song My Neighbourhood, by composer Goldmund, is also present for the first time.

Second film of Pascal Laugier after Saint-Ange in 2004, Martyrs also represents the last project of the makeup artist Benoît Lestang (The Living Dead Girl, The Revenge of the Living Dead Girls or collaborator of Mylène Farmer for Sans contrefaçon, Giorgino and Q.I) to whom our label pays tribute here.

Vinyl version:

• Glossy gatefold cover
• 150gr audiophile black vinyl
• Typography in real chrome (hot stamping)
• Strictly limited to 1000 copies
• Public price: 29€99


CD version:

• Digipack CD format
• A 12-pages booklet including liner notes reviewing the process of creating by Willie Cortés
• Collector’s edition strictly limited to 500 copies
• Public price: 15€99


Vol. II - Ghostland • Georges Boukoff, Anthony d'Amario et Ed Rig • TOP-013LP / CD / D



Produced ten years after Martyrs, Pascal Laugier’s Ghostland is the latest frontal shock of the French new horror wave. Collecting all the prizes at Gérardmer in 2018 and with more than 650 000 entries in the world, this new gothic and demonstrative nightmare affirms itself in negative of the previous hit film of the director. Featuring a cast worn, among others by the icon of the French pop Mylène Farmer, Ghostland offers the radical vision of a certain cinema, but also a metaphor on innocence and achieving one’s dreams. A graphic tale for adults.

In perfect harmony with the dark images of Pascal Laugier, the soundtrack is the work of three composers from different worlds : Georges Boukoff, classical concertist, Anthony d’Amario et Ed Rig, self-taught young people. Oscillating between pure moments of anxiety, a minimalism inherited from John Carpenter and sublime macabre waltzes, their compositions are crossed by multiple influences.

Vinyl version:

• Matt gatefold cover
• Two 150gr audiophile black vinyls
• Collector’s edition strictly limited to 1000 copies
• Public price: 32€99


CD version:

• Digipack CD format
• A 12-pages booklet including liner notes by composers.
• Collector’s edition strictly limited to 1000 copies
• Public price: 16€99

On preorder today • Collection Amour à la française • Vol. I (TOP-014LP / CD / D)


 
The Omega Productions Records is proud to present for the first time ever the original motion picture soundtrack of L’Amour à la bouche a.k.a Mannequin (1974), composed by Yan Tregger.

PREORDER ➡ www.theomegaproductionsrecords.com/amour-a-la-francaise

 Distributed one year before the implementation of the French X law, L'Amour à la bouche is the first erotic film directed by Gérard Kikoïne (Jess Franco or Claude Mulot editor). He’s famous today for his « films d’Amour » that he directed during the french porn golden age, some with Brigitte Lahaie or Marilyn Jess. A few years before Education of the Baroness, this production offers a true vision of the aftermath May 68' sexual liberation, between extravagant swingers and social debauchery.

This groovy soundtrack is composed by Yan Tregger, also known as Ted Scotto. If he isn't the most well-knowed French musicians of his decade, his music is particularly related to the diggers' culture and others underground library collectors. Composed during a pre-disco period for Montparnasse 2000, the album oscillates between nervous beats, funky strings, "à la Gainsbourg" bass-sounds and more intimate compositions inherited from Italy.

Resulting from a close collaboration between Yan Tregger, Gérard Kikoïne and The Omega Productions Records, this CD edition contains for the first time ever the full score and a 12 pages-booklet with liner notes by Yan Tregger. Vinyl release is pressed on 150gr black wax and housed in a gatefold cover including liner notes from the composer.





Collector’s edition strictly limited to 500 copies.

The Omega Productions records is proud to announce its last release of the year 2019: the soundtrack of Female Vampire, a film directed by Jess Franco on a score by Daniel J. White (1973 • Eurocine Collection Vol. I • Top-015).



In order to avoid a crossing with our ultimate release of the year, pre-order of this iconic title of the Spanish Filmmaker's career will take place over a short period: from 15 to 31 October, date of the national release.

We will also increase the quantities of the CDs from 500 to 200 copies, in order to preserve the support of the disappearance.
More information very quickly.
