'Marquees, Matinees and Marionettes'

Description: As the title and production suggests, this composition is an aural gift of nostalgia, and reminiscent of what a child would find entertaining.  An exciting Orchestral palette, with tympani and triangle the puppets almost walk off on their own...

Story Behind the Music: Upon the climactic conclusion of Ravel's Bolero one August afternoon, my daughter immediately began to hum this melody. Ironically, I had always considered it to be unconsciously influenced by the great twentieth century composer, whose work I admire greatly. Originally found in 'Minuet in D,' the engaging descending and ascending motif I found so attractive that I considered using a derivation of it as part of a different composition. Beginning with the temple block, the track takes on an orchestral feel as tympani, vibraslap, triangle and snare texture the production.

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"
