LOS ANGELES — Zero Tolerance tapped two members of well-established mainstream groups for the soundtrack of its new psychological thriller "Sanatorium."

On Monday, ZT released a special Q&A with Guns N’ Roses member Teddy Andreadis and Static X’s Kiochi Fukada who composed the music for the movie that stars Tabitha Stevens and company exclusives Kagney Linn Karter and Sara Sloane.

Directed by Gary Orona, "Sanitorium" is a twisted story about an iconic adult superstar discovering the dark secret world of deviants occupied by senators, lawyers, priests and other do-gooders whose public personas as anti-porn crusaders are in direct opposition to their wicked lives behind closed doors.

ZT: What was it like scoring tracks for "Sanatorium?"

Ted: It was a very interesting yet very enjoyable project. I really love the movie and found myself really exploring sounds and textures that would really lend itself to the film.

Kiochi: I always enjoy working on music for films/visuals; the music/sound effects can make whatever the emotions that are intended to be expressed in a piece come alive.

ZT: Were you watching the film while you were scoring the soundtrack to get an idea of how dark the music needed to be?

Ted: Yes. I found myself coming up with two and three alternative parts for each scene.

Kiochi: Yes, I always watch the film when I'm working on the soundtrack so I can understand and feel the mood for each scene; the music is inspired by the visuals and the stories.

ZT: Please list the bands that you have performed in (the studio as well as live)

Ted: Ok here goes. Guns & Roses, Alice Cooper, Roger Daltry, Beth Hart, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Willis, Carole King, Gilby Clark, Slash, Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad,) Glen Hughes, LA GUNNS, Big Noize, Slash’s Bluz Ball, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather, Ace Freeley, Boxing Gandhis touring with Dave Mattews Band, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, Simon Kirk, Alan White, and Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp Band MD.

Kiochi: Static-X, OTEP, KMFDM, Drugstore Fanatics, Mephisto Odyssey, Revolve.

ZT: Do you feel that it is important that even a high-budget 'adult film' should have a unique and original soundtrack? Why?

Ted: Because it is a film, period! Music plays a huge part in any film. I think the more unique the music, the more interesting the film.

Kiochi: It depends whether it is purposeful. There are so many videos/films of all quality and budget levels being made by all kinds of people with all levels of skills. If anybody intends to produce something that stands out among them and especially if the focus is on the art direction it is highly effective to have a unique and original soundtrack.

ZT: What was it like working with porn star Tabitha Stevens and writer/producer/director Gary Orona? Was your experience with them professional?

Ted: Tab and Gary are truly a joy to work with. They both love what they do and it comes across in the work. I hope I can have the opportunity to work with them again soon. They both allowed me a little freedom to create what I thought would fit. And of course, when it didn’t work we changed it. Really a great experience.

Kiochi: It was a pleasure to work with them. They are not only very professional, but have the passion for what they do.

ZT: Do you think that there will be more original soundtracks being made for adult films? Do you think that Tabitha and Gary have helped open the door for other adult companies to have creative and original soundtracks made?

Ted: Yes of course. There are a lot of very talented music people out there who would love the opportunity to create something original. Myself, I’m always more interested in a film when the music is unique to the film. It always keeps my attention and makes me stay to read the credits. I know a lot of films have small budgets and choose canned music over live recorded stuff, but I think that if more companies used original compositions there would be a treasure chest of stuff to pick from. Just gotta find it.

Kiochi: I don't have much knowledge as to how "adult companies" decide what to produce, but hopefully this film will inspire others to think outside of the box.

In addition to the brilliant musical talents of Teddy and Kiochi, the soundtrack also features Billy Idol’s guitar player Steve Stevens and Static X’s Tony Campos.

Produced and directed by Orona, the acclaimed HBO/Cinemax’s director (Hotel Erotica, The Erotic Traveler, Thrills), "Sanatorium" was shot on 35mm film.
