In 1999 the music world immediately fell under the spell of the formation The Cinematic Orchestra. 'An unusual and frankly remarkable project', according to music magazine Mojo. The group, centered around Jason Swinscoe, the former co-worker of the progressive music label Ninja Tune, succeeded in fusing its instruments with samples and turntablism in an original way, thus creating a self-willed mix of jazz and electronics. Swinscoe developed a method by which everything played by the band is sampled and subsequently manipulated again. Their name refers to the movie orchestras of passed times. Therefore The Cinematic Orchestra soon drew the attention of the movie world. The Motion album was so well received that they were invited to perform at the Achievement Award Ceremony for director Stanley Kubrick. After that Swinscoe got the chance to write music for an old Russian movie, as can be heard on the successful album Everyday. Therefore it comes as no surprise that their new piece of work Ma Fleur can be enjoyed as a soundtrack. Once again it's rich in ideas and colors.
