Notes and Editorial Reviews

COLLECTIONS is a unique combination of Michael Nyman's work as a composer, filmmaker and photographer. Film 50000 PHOTOS CAN'T BE WRONG A first release combination of film and music. In a single format this film represents Michael's videographic, photographic and musical work. The title originated in a score commissioned by the Great North Run cultural festival in 2007 entitled 50000 Pairs of Feet Can't be Wrong. MUSIC PORTRAIT OF A LABEL Includes bonus track The Coldest Place on Earth. First album release. A compilation of single tracks taken from each of the MN Records albums starting with The Piano Sings in 2005 through to The Glare in 2009. PHOTOGRAPHY CINE OPERA A specially commissioned combination of Michael Nyman's photographic Read more output. Made up of photos taken over the last five years, the book is built around photographs taken in 2010 at the Teatro Cine Opera in Mexico City. The building, built in the 1940s, is now in a state of total disrepair but Michael's obsession with the building and the sense of combined beauty and loss, led him to take the name CINE OPERA and use it as the title for the complete collection of his visual images.
