Given his long-standing obsession with film soundtracks, it's little surprise to see Cinematic Orchestra chief J Swinscoe delivering another project with strong audio-visual credentials. In Motion No. 1 is the first in a series of "re-imaginings" of soundtracks to short avant garde films from Swinscoe and friends. While there's a danger that such high concept work could be either pretentious or dull, for the most part In Motion succeeds. That's due in no small part to the talents of the producers and composers involved. There's a fragile beauty to the offering of Grey Reverend, while the two collaborations between Dorian Concept and Tom Chant (particularly "Dream Work", which sounds like the Orb with a string quartet) are simply magical.
