Live Footage & Danny Meyer - Unwritten Soundtrack
"Unwritten Soundtrack is a collaboration between avant electro duo Live Footage and saxophonist Danny Meyer release via Ephemeral Arts. For the past 13 years cellist Topu Lyo and drummer/keyboardist Mike Thies have produced improvisational cinematic mini-soundtracks constructed from loops, samples, tape manipulations and synthesizer treatments reminiscent of Brian Eno, Morricone and Carpenter."
"The result of this collaboration with multi-disciplinarian artist Meyer (who has contributed musically to such acts as Julia Holter, Chairlift, ExoTech and MGMT) is an expansion on the urbane electro charged atmosphere that the duo has fulfilled in which the saxophone overlays an organicness that simultaneously pays homage to the jazz of a past age with a future that is only just being discovered."
" “Broken” kicks off a world where Dejohnette and Coltrane somehow meet in the back alleys of a distant time with a repetitive riff that evolves from the pure and unaffected to reverbed and delayed horns woven through Lyo’s delicately effected strings. “Sea Marsh” references the downiness of Richard Thomas’ work with Cocteau Twins and is equally as majestic as anything yielded from that long ago collaboration. The psychedelic backdrop of “Dramatic Theme” sets the stage for an intoxicated interplay of sax and cello, propped up by a steady beat that seems to orbit from a distance. "
