About this item

A collection of soundtracks to films which exist only in the imagination of the listener, ‘Films in Music’ is a continuation of the work started by Boz Hayward with his 2013 Video Jam works collection Shortscores. While that album used short films by independent filmmakers as its starting point, this time Hayward has written the music as stand-alone pieces and his long-standing collective of musicians Bozchestra have brought them to life.

A wide variety of instrumentation is used to conjure a wide variety of moods – ‘There’ll Always Be Strangeness’ is a James Bond theme in waiting, ‘Wounded Knee’ is a sombre and respectful reflection on the fateful historical massacre, ‘Jazzster’ fades in and out on a jaunty, trumpet-led late summer evening stroll, ‘The Other Song’ ushers in voices but wordlessly, as instruments

The musical DNA collects elements the evocative, dramatic atmospheres of John Barry, the wistful melancholia of Penguin Café Orchestra and a whole whimsical strain of English urban folk
