 Notes & Reviews
 
2018 release. Manchester based composer, bassist and producer Phil France is probably best known as a key collaborator in the Cinematic Orchestra, where he co-wrote, arranged and produced on classic albums including Everyday, Man With The Movie Camera, Ma Fleur and also the triple award winning soundtrack for The Crimson Wing nature documentary. The enigmatically titled 'Circle' is an extension of work he began on his solo debut The Swimmer (2013). Utilizing a process he has described as: ' blocks of sound containing intricate minimal arpeggiated patterns and electronic textures that develop and shift in subtle, original and melodic ways. The trancelike quality, mood and electronic character of the title track led France to think of the circular patterns which eventually became a potent concept for the album. Influenced by the great second wave of film composers including John Carpenter and Vangelis, as well as minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass, with the occasional nod to the melodicism and atmosphere of French electronic music.
