Editor's Info:
numerous films, Nils Petter Molvar wanted to take the opportunity to present some of this work "outside the box".

In re-vision, we are presented with a selection of what Molvar feels represents his work for film at its most independently listenable, and yet most integrated with the films they are part of. "Listening to these tracks on the album and listening to them in the film contexts are very different experiences."

We often forget it's there. We watch events, joyful, sorrowful, peaceful and violent, and we are almost unaware of its presence. The movie soundtrack, or - more properly - score, is a key ingredient of any film. Yet much of the time, its main purpose it to have an effect, but remain invisible.

Could a component survive outside the engine? NPM realised that it should, because his compositional techniques meant that something more instinctive was at work.

"I always try to keep the music personal. The directors, who have asked me so far, do it because they like the feeling in my music, and they use songs from my albums as "directions" for what they want. However, the movie is the "soloist", so I'm trying to create musical atmospheres, and effects: interesting, sad, angry, or feel good ... or bad. It depends on the script, and the mood or feeling the director (and sometimes the producer) is after. Personally, I prefer to communicate with the director."
As a lover of the medium, Molvar is very aware of the highs and lows of scoring for film. "There is a large overspill when you write film music. Sometimes there can be 40-50 ideas, and only 4 or 5 get through." He smiles: "I keep most of the ideas on file, though."

The album, re-vision, draws from three different films: Frozen Heart (Dir. Stig Andersen); EDY (dir. Stéphan Guérin-Tillié); Hoppet (Dir. Petter Nass). The moods on the tracks from these three films vary greatly, yet they form a unified vision.

re-vision is quite different from Molvar's studio or live material, and it sits in stark contrast to the two previous "Re-" albums, Recoloured and Remakes: it is fluid and atmospheric, moving through textural changes, reloading itself with new emotional energies as it progresses, and yet sustains a unity and coherence, becoming something uniquely "Molvar". It stands as a complete Molvar album, expressing the unique musical vision that has informed his albums from "Khmer" to "ER".

The feeling that this album is music for a personal inner film is unshakable, and it makes the listener curious as to future directions in Molvar's music as well as arousing curiosity in relation to the films he has already scored, and films that are yet to come.

The re-vision CD artwork is by highly acclaimed British artist, Russell Mills. The images complement the music perfectly, reminding us of the visual origins of much of the music without putting a strictly recognisable dogma in place: the images are as fluid as the music itself, warm, amorphous, and evocative.

Molvar has a number of future film scores lined-up. At the moment, he is working on a score for a German film, Hannah's Words. This film requires a slight twist in scoring mechanics in that some of the score is required before shooting. It is challenges such as this that have kept Molvar coming back to film regularly over the past 10 years.
When asked about his film preferences for scoring, he replies: "Dramas, Sci-Fi, and Thrillers, most probably. I particularly enjoy darkly comic movies, though." He laughs again: "I guess, though, I won't be at the top of any director's list to score a romantic comedy!"
