Dream your own movie

This is a collection of mostly modern classical and very cinematic pieces. When mixed together they will, hopefully, give the listener the opportunity to write his own story to the sounds. Preferably best enjoyed with the lights out and the headphones on, to take you to the double climax of Shostakovich’s and Arvo Pärt’s most intense pieces.

The story:
Alfred Schnittke – In Memoriam, Moderato
Alfred Schnittke – In Memorian, Tempo di Valse
Arvo Pärt – Pari Intervalo
Sun o))) & Boris – N.L.T.
Line Renaud – Sexe
Eric Satie – Croquis et agaceries d’un gros bonhomme en bois (Tyrolienne torque)
Eric Satie – Gnossiennes – Lent
Venetian Snares – Colorless
Dmitri Shostakovich – 15e Symphony, Adagio Largo
Alfred Schnittke – In Memoriam, Andante
Arvo Pärt – De Profundis
Sallinen – Winter was hard
