on life, music etc beyond mainstream



There are damaged mobile phones, old iPods, in fact music is everywhere in Sharp Objects, but there never is a composer behind the scenes. So everything you hear, is just happening in filmic reality. Executed with awesome perfection. There is Alan‘s expensive record player system (find the details in the interview with musical supervisor Sue Jacobs in our TV column). He is living in his world of music. And we all are raising eyebrows when he quite unexpectedly puts on The Doors‘ „Riders On The Storm“. What the hell is going on? (m.e.)

    According to director Jean-Marc Vallée, Alan is using “the ultimate audiophile system on the market,” with a series of amplifiers and preamps from Simaudio, a French-Canadian company (the director himself is from Montreal).

    According to Simaudio, the “MOON” setup that appears on Sharp Objects includes: a 430HAD, headphone amp (estimated price $4,300), a 740P stereo preamp ($9,000), a 810LP phono preamp ($13,000), a 650D CD player ($9,000), and two 880M monobloc power amps ($22,500 each). Alan also has a VPI turntable ($4,000) with an Ortofon cartridge ($1,000) for his vinyl collection. All in all, that adds up to over $80,000 worth of equipment, plus however much Alan has sunk into his vinyl collection. At least Adora’s hog-farming money is going to good use?

    Update: Alan’s speaker system is even more tricked out than we thought! A Simaudio employee told Vulture that, in addition to everything else, Alan uses a Ultrasone — Tribute 7 headset ($3,000) and two Dynaudio C4 platinum speakers ($12,000 each), which means the total comes to more than $112,000, plus all the money he had to spend on cables. The next question: How much went into that creepy dollhouse?
