Raymond Scott - Biography 2: Various Artists

   (0 reviews)

Aural Films reached out to audio and video artists from around the world to create their very own tribute to Raymond Scott's legacy and the many great things that were brought to life by Manhattan Research Inc. The response was hugely positive resulting in over 57 artists creating original tracks, and a video by Saul Wes, that pay tribute to Scott.

The Raymond Scott Biography project has the support of Reckless Night LLC, the trust that oversees Scott's library and ongoing legacy. With this, the project's music will be added to the Raymond Scott Library. Stan Warnow, director of the "Deconstructing Dad" (2010) documentary film about his father's life, had this to say about the music produced for this project:

“Listening to these tracks was a succession of aural delights. It's a remarkable collection that is a fitting tribute to my Dad--many tracks clearly directly descended (and sometimes sampled) from his electronic work. The word channeling is often used very loosely but in this case it's totally appropriate for those tracks--as if my father were still alive and revisiting his work from 50 years ago. But others are just as delightful as original stand alone works inspired by Raymond Scott. And knowing so many talented musicians from all over the world were inspired to create these works is a new inspiration for those of us who have been working for many years to ensure and enlarge Raymond Scott's musical legacy. I know my father would have been thrilled to be honored in this way.”
