Album Notes
The music featured on this CD is a collaboration between myself and Ego Plum. I was approached by the film director, Ramzi Abed to compose music for his feature film, ‘Black Dahlia Movie’ ( as it was entitled at the time ), it being a surrealistic, tangential take on the legendary ‘Black Dahlia’ murder mystery. When Ego heard about the project, he contacted Ramzi with a view to being involved. Ramzi passed me a copy of Ego’s demo and I have to say that I was enormously impressed by its quality. All lush film noir atmospherics, Rotaesque strings and what sounded like the fever dreams of Raymond Scott. I had a partner in crime!

The music took on a life of it’s own outside of its essential relationship to the film. This was due, in part, to my growing mediumistic obsession with the subject matter which acted as a vortex, pulling me ever further into the abyss of it’s dark glamour. It was indeed, a very scary place and I was glad to have Ego along for the ride. His ability to bounce his own ideas off of my own fevered reverie never failed. We invited other musicians to take part. Strings came courtesy of Joyce Rooks ..o and Tom Vos on viola and violin and it is the latter’s arrangements which grace the proceedings. The inimitable Creekbird played the spectral wheezing organ on ‘Black Dahlia Theme’ which was recorded in a top secret location high in the Hollywood Hills. This track was engineered by John Neff, sometime sound architect and musical collaborator with David Lynch. It features the divine Nora Keyes on vocals.
