Film composer and musical arranger Craig Armstrong has had an eclectic career in pop, jazz, electronic, and experimental music fields. This compilation of selected highlights from a decade and a half of his film scores showcases his musical imagination in pieces from movies as disparate as THE QUIET AMERICAN and ROMEO AND JULIET. The composer flirts with sentimentality on Nicole Kidman's "One Day I'll Fly Away," and Ewan MacGregor and David Bowie's "Nature Boy," both from Baz Luhrmann's lavish production of MOULIN ROUGE, while AMERICAN's blend of acoustic piano and electronica displays a spare melancholy that impeccably matches that film's dark mood. By turns majestic and minimalist, FILM WORKS is an impeccably assembled collection from a master craftsman.
