“Music for Pictures” by Trey Gunn contains twenty-nine audio tracks culled, tweaked, re-orchestrated and re-manipulated from this King Crimson alumnus’ extensive body of scoring work for film and television. Using his unique instrumentation of 10-string touch guitars and bluesy fretless guitars, Gunn harnesses the power of several of the world’s top drummers to make this masterful work. These recordings originally began with a series of television documentaries and culminated in a film score for Pavel Runimov, heralded as the new Stanley Kubrick of Russia.
“Music For Pictures” is collection of tight, crystal-like compositions ranging from the dramatically gritty, to the clangorous, to the somnambulistic, to the complete disassembling of sound, itself, into the shattered sonic fissures of the final track.
