PAN/SCAN - "Cinematic Lies" Digi CD (Cine 17)
"Pan/Scan: a method of adjusting widescreen film images so that they can be shown within the proportions of a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio television screen, often cropping off the sides of the original widescreen image to focus on the composition's most important aspects." (Wikipedia)
Welcome to the sound of PAN/SCAN!
Part movie score, part library music, part accoustic sculptures: the debut album "Cinematic Lies" from PAN/SCAN is a trip into the wide world of soundtrack music, evoking many different scenes and set pieces. From furious action to nightmarish horror, from zombiesque soundscapes to the opening credits of a fictional serial, there're all varieties of cinematic music represented, most of them with a delightful touch of the 80s. Hardly a reminiscence you can't find on this longplayer. PAN/SCAN took a deep musical bow to many iconic composers like John Carpenter, Christopher Young, Tangerine Dream, Goblin or Fabio Frizzi.
