CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA - NINJA TUNE MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA

2X12" SEALED LP INCLUDES FREE DOWNLOAD CODE - DOWNBEAT ELECTRONICA FILM SOUNDTRACK IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA RECEIVED A COMMISSION FOR A FILM SCORE, BUT THIS 2003 RELEASE ACTUALLY DATES FROM 1999. THE GENESIS OF MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA LIES IN THE SELECTION COMMITTEE OF A PORTUGUESE FILM FESTIVAL, WHICH ASKED CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA TO SCORE THEIR RE-AIRING OF DZIGA VERTOV'S 1929 FILM OF THE SAME NAME, A SILENT SOVIET DOCUMENTARY FOCUSED ON A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN AVERAGE WORKER. PERFORMED LIVE BY THE ORCHESTRA, MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA DOESN'T ALLOW J SWINSCOE TO INDULGE IN HIS USUAL POST-PRODUCTION MAGIC, BUT IT IS A SURPRISINGLY ADEPT SCORE, WITH OCCASIONAL BURSTS OF ON-THE-ONE JAZZ-FUNK WAILING TO BREAK IT UP. (PITY THE POOR COMRADE WHO'S SOUNDTRACKED 70 YEARS LATER WITH A HYPER-SPEED PRETTY PURDIE-TYPE DRUM SOLO AND SOME OLD-SCHOOL-RAP SAMPLES IN THE BACKGROUND.) SCATTERED MOMENTS OF BRILLIANCE ABOUND, AND AT ONE POINT, SOMEONE ON SAX COMES UP WITH A BRILLIANT FOGHORN RECR - NEW RELEASE

2x12" Sealed LP Includes Free Download Code - Downbeat Electronica Film Soundtrack It was just a matter of time before the Cinematic Orchestra received a commission for a film score, but this 2003 release actually dates from 1999. The genesis of Man With a Movie Camera lies in the selection committee of a Portuguese film festival, which asked Cinematic Orchestra to score their re-airing of Dziga Vertov's 1929 film of the same name, a silent Soviet documentary focused on a day in the life of an average worker. Performed live by the orchestra, Man With a Movie Camera doesn't allow J Swinscoe to indulge in his usual post-production magic, but it is a surprisingly adept score, with occasional bursts of on-the-one jazz-funk wailing to break it up. (Pity the poor comrade who's soundtracked 70 years later with a hyper-speed Pretty Purdie-type drum solo and some old-school-rap samples in the background.) Scattered moments of brilliance abound, and at one point, someone on sax comes up with a brilliant foghorn recr
