CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA, THE - PRESENTS IN MOTION PART 1 (CD)


"Jason Swinscoe of The Cinematic Orchestra has long been intrigued by the link between vision and sound. From TCO's re-soundtracking of "Man With A Movie Camera," through his "soundtrack to an imaginary film," Ma Fleur, to his band's name itself, Swinscoe has continued to pick away at the issues and emotions found at this intersection. With "In Motion #1" he continues this process by inviting some of his favourite musicians and producers to provide soundtracks to or musical re-imaginings of seminal work by great avant garde film-makers. Responding to visuals which run from René Clair's surrealist classic "Entr'acte" (The Cinematic Orchestra) right up to Peter Tscherkassky's "Outer Space" (Dorian Concept & Tom Chant), the musicians wrote for and worked with a string quartet to create music of remarkable emotional reach. The results are so vivid, so complex yet immediate, that they can be enjoyed as freestanding pieces in their own right." (label info)
