Cinema Sounds #007 – The Cinematic Orchestra: Man with a Movie Camera

Part of our ongoing Cinema Sounds series, Paul Gonter brings us Man With a Movie Camera, The Cinematic Orchestra’s third studio album.

The Artist: The Cinematic Orchestra
The Influence: Soviet montage from the silent era
The Result: post rock’s relationship with film fully realized

To add to the long list of soundtracks for Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent masterpiece Man with a Movie Camera, the organizers of Porto European City of Culture asked The Cinematic Orchestra to write a new score for a screening at their 2001 festival. The score was performed live at the festival and was released as a studio album in 2003 with some alterations.

Man With a Movie Camera is available for purchase on iTunes.
