Format:Audio CD
Having scored and recorded for numerous films, Nils Petter Molvær wanted to take the opportunity to present some of this work "outside the box".

In re-vision, we are presented with a selection of what Molvær feels represents his work for film at its most independently listenable, and yet most integrated with the films they are part of. "Listening to these tracks on the album and listening to them in the film contexts are very different experiences."

We often forget it's there. We watch events, joyful, sorrowful, peaceful and violent, and we are almost unaware of its presence. The movie soundtrack, or - more properly - score, is a key ingredient of any film. Yet much of the time, its main purpose it to have an effect, but remain invisible.

Could a component survive outside the engine? NPM realised that it should, because his compositional techniques meant that something more instinctive was at work.

3 1/2

Most composers would not be capable of cutting and pasting various previous work into a cohesive album, though trumpeter Molvaer proves successful at exactly that with this film compilation of dark electronic jazz. Style may trump substance, but not by much with this ideal sampler that will leave you wanting more.
