Bing Futch - "70mm"
Described as "an electronic theater-hopping experience", this instrumental album by Mohave founder Bing Futch is a freewheeling excursion through a sonic landscape of moods, memories and magic. The CD is a partial showcase for five tracks that were written for the soundtrack of a children's attraction called The Castle Of Miracles at Give Kids The World Village in Kissimmee, Florida. "Four Faerie Tales" is a 16th century suite of Renaissance music while "How To Build A Castle" is a shape-shifting overture that plays like the final moments of a major motion picture.
The rest of the album is a progressively entertaining blend of heavy rhythmic synth-pop and new-age textures woven together in unusual arrangements. From the intergalactic cathedral sounds of "The Long Journey Home: 1994" to the hard-hitting arena groove of "Marryin' The Music", Futch weaves a dizzying web of musical layers and styles.
