about

As fate will have it, a music sound producer ends up working in film. During a shooting “dry spell”, he recalls an idea he once had of marrying his passion for music with that for cinema. Often while watching films, he hears parts of dialogue as if they were sung. At such times he feels only music is lacking to turn such snippets into an accomplished musical piece.

He subsequently gets to work, using his music sound skills to make an album. The idea behind the album is rather simple – take bits of the spoken word that stand out and give them the music that they inspire. While the music should have value of its own, it will benefit from the punch each movie brings, and in turn, the movies themselves will get a new spin.

In the end, what is created is a dynamic, catchy and full-bodied album that not only compels the listener to watch these cult classics once again, but also portrays them in a new light. An album that presents an unusual outlook on the works that have inspired it and that attempts a more creative film-music interaction than simply covering theme music.
