"Rashomon is the latest project of Guapo founder member Matt Thompson. New album "The Ruined Map : Film Music Volume 1" is a bewildering mix of prog rock, electronic noise, waltzes, East European folk, trad metal, drones, psych rock and free jazz, similar in intention to soundtrack visionaries such as Toru Takemitsu and Ennio Morricone. Each of the eight tracks is based on a different film - not specifically in the form of soundtracks, but rather as companion pieces to the psychic states invoked by the more bizarre outer reaches of narrative cinema. The ideas and filmic techniques of directors such as Seijun Suzuki, Albert Zugsmith and Hiroshi Teshigahara are applied to musical processes in the form of pans, zooms, narrative discontinuities etc." (label info)
