Silent Soundtracks
Compiled by the team at Groovescooter Records this CD features some of Australia's most significant creative talents.

Coupling works from well known Australian screen composers, with tracks by some of the country's emerging soundtrackers and those whose music is particularly cinematic in nature, 'Silent Soundtracks' is a unique album that showcases some extraordinary talent. Far from the incoherent '20 Great Movie Themes' type compilations of the past, this carefully selected collection of atmospheric tracks represents all that is great in original soundtracking, acknowledging the important part music plays in augmenting the mood, power and effect of on-screen images.

What the media have to say...

"Released alongside Sydney's 49th Film Festival, Silent Soundtracks pays tribute to those 'silent' and often forgotten musical backdrops that have accompanied some of this country's greatest film achievements. As well as this, it also recognises the impact that soundtrack music has had. The result is 16 gorgeously cinematic tracks that are often bleak and minimal, yet deeply emotive. Forget the theme to Spider-man, or the great Titanic ballads, this is music by musicians for films loved by the buffs. Margaret and David would be proud."
(4 Star Review, 3D World)
 
"Looking for a composer to score your film? Then you've come to the right place."
(DVD Now Magazine)
 
"Like most exciting projects, Silent Soundtracks is a ricky gamble that pays off. It's a bold move, but Silent Soundtracks plays seamlessly, with the tracks gliding into each other to create one long mood piece that fits together perfectly. An admirable and daring success story."
(4 Star Review, Filmink Magazine)
 
"A showcase rather than a straightforward compilation. Buy it and you'll have the privilege of being the first to encounter Australia's next generation of film composers."
(4 star review, Empire Magazine)
 
"As well as existing scores, it contains some really incredible music from a wide range of Australian artists that should be scoring films - and undoubtedly would be if the Australian government would give more money to film makers and less to the freaking Opera for God's sake. At first I was thinking this would be the kind of album I'd listen to a couple of times and that's it, but on first listen I knew otherwise. I reckon anyone lookin' to impress their cool taste can finally chuck out those tired jazz compilations that came with the cook books and your battered copy of The Rebirth of Cool Phive. Because this is the real deal. Or of course you could just buy it because you like good music - or good film. Either way you can't lose!"
(Beat Magazine)
 
"The beauty of an album like this is that, since it is not tied to a genre, it dosen't date in the same way. What you get is just over 75 minutes of soundscapes, some more ambient than others, but all capable of creating the most extraordinary images in your mind if you're willing to take the trip. The tracking has been superbly handled. So exlectic a mix says as much for the incredible broadening of what was once considered appropriate for film as it does the versatility of the musicians concerned."
(Michael Smith, Drum Media)
