Stanley Kubrick's movie The Shining (1980) continues to fascinate after 30 years. A new documentary on perceived meanings/radical interpretations of the film, titled Room 237, is now playing the festival circuit. I know it's audacious, but I decided to do a close listen to the entire film soundtrack, and discuss this most extraordinary and densely packed masterpiece of modern horror.
Produced and engineered by dj bennett (

With thanks to my live listeners, Louise, Alan, Jason and Sarah, Humberto, Noel. Though we had a stream glitch and everyone was thrown off briefly, I recorded it all, so the only way to hear the entire program is through this post. Also thanks to and Presented for education and entertainment. Id love to hear from listeners, please.

128k. This program is over three hours long, so I split it into two 95 minute segments for easier use.

I play an interview with Room 237 producer Tim Kirk and director Rodney Ascher

Most of the program is a close listen to the sound of the film The Shining (1980)
Based on the novel by Stephen King
Film written by Stanley Kubrick and Diane Johnson
Directed by Stanley Kubrick

Major Cast:
Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance
Shelley Duvall as Wendy Torrance
Danny Lloyd as Danny Torrance
Scatman Crothers as Dick Halloran, the cook
Barry Nelson as Ullman, who hires Jack
Joe Turkel as Lloyd the Bartender
Philip Stone as Grady, the "butler"

Soundtrack: basic score by Wendy Carlos and Rachel Elkind, but Kubrick mostly used modernist music scores which he laid over each other (sort of like the Chill Room!), sound editing was done by Dino Di Campo, Jack Knight, and Bill Rowe.
The non-original music on the soundtrack includes:
Lontano by György Ligeti
Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta by Béla Bartók
Utrenja — excerpts from the Ewangelia and Kanon Paschy movements and The Awakening of Jacob by Krzysztof Penderecki
Home by Henry Hall and the Gleneagles Hotel Band
Midnight, the Stars and You performed by Ray Noble and His Orchestra, with Al Bowlly

There are three musical interludes not from The Shining:
John Lennon-Instant Karma!
Grateful Dead-Cold Rain and Snow
Ryoji Ikeda-Headphonics

Jack: "I want you to like it here. I wish we could stay here forever ... and ever ... and ever."
