Michael Nyman, The Kiss and Other Movements (1985)
My (knowing) introduction to Michael Nyman was the score from The Piano but in finding out the name attached to the music I realised I’d heard his music before; having seen a few Peter Greenaway films – head-fuck that they were to a young teen. And I loved Nyman’s score for The End Of The Affair also. So from there I started collecting up a few things, compilations to start with, the best way to sample the range of soundtrack music. From there it’s been to individual scores and albums. Found this the other day and bought it without knowing anything from it, as far as I was aware. But one play and it’s all familiar, some of this music used for films too, some of it composed for this album. I really love Nyman’s music.
