Product Description


Ah, that hardy perennial--the soundtrack to a film that hasn't been made. But wait--there's a history to Invisible Soundtracks: Macro 3 that ranks it apart from the tedious copyists that have made "cinematic" their catchword ever since the release of Portishead's Dummy. A project of the Leaf Label--one of Britain's bravest experimental dance imprints--the first Invisible Soundtracks compilation landed in 1995, draws inspiration from the precedent set by seminal ambient atmospheric works like Brian Eno's Ambient 1: Music For Airports. Satisfyingly, Macro 3 doesn't make a mockery of this lineage; casting the net wide, Leaf have collected together 16 specially commissioned tracks from artists across the globe. Toronto-based pianist Manitoba contributes "Anna And Nina", which apes, and stunningly, betters the loping jazz excursions practised by Four Tet; bass-toting avant-rock trio Rothko offer the gently undulating "Suddenly Becomes Light"; and Japanese sound innovator Susumu Yokota offers a light but affecting ambient shimmer on "Fancy Flavour". Put those cameras away: Invisible Soundtracks: Macro 3 maps out the cutting edge with sound alone. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Nu-Jazz Breaks Genius 10 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Worth the price for Manitoba's fantastic effort alone - frankly, I don't think that Nu-Jazz Breaks get much better than this. The beautiful shimmering sounds carress every part of my body; Manitoba is a Nu-Jazz genius.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't recommend this at all... 16 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wishy-washy and mood-driven crap. Whatever nu-jazz is supposed to be it ain't this. I have rarely heard a record more difficult to listen to than this one. And not only are a few of the tracks like this - they're ALL as bad (with the possible exception of OP:L Bastards - well done guys, you saved the compilation). If you enjoy sitting confusedly waiting for the real tune to kick in then buy this record.

3.0 out of 5 stars soundtrack for your life 1 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
as Wallpaper* said: Brian Eno's 70's invention of Ambient Music was intended to work as soundtracks for living. No distracting lyrics and arrangements, this is the perfect stuff for lounging about on a late sunday afternoon, or your drive down Market Street... if you're the wired kind who works surrounded by whirring, buzzing server hard drives, this thing will set you free while still allowing you to concentrate on watching the ax.
