Michael Nyman has now completed scores for the three major films that the pioneering Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov made in the late 1920s. To 'Man with a Movie Camera' he has added 'The Eleventh Year' and 'A Sixth Part of the World' and as a unique experiment for MN Records he has created a new Michael Nyman Band work by making a montage of material from both of the soundtracks into a single, continuous piece which runs for 77 minutes.
Vertov Sounds is the fourth release on MN Records as part of the Composer's Cut series.
"The Michael Nyman Band has never played better than they do here, and the sound quality is excellent. If you only buy one Nyman disc, this is the one to get." - Haskins (American Records Guide)
