Described as 'an electronic theater-hopping experience', this instrumental album by Mohave founder Bing Futch is a freewheeling excursion through a sonic landscape of moods, memories and magic. The CD is a partial showcase for five tracks that were written for the soundtrack of a children's attraction called The Castle Of Miracles in Kissimmee, Florida. 'Four Faerie Tales' is a 16th century suite of Renaissance music while 'How To Build A Castle' is a shape-shifting overture that plays like the final moments of a major motion picture. The rest of the album is a progressively entertaining blend of heavy rhythmic synth-pop and new-age textures woven together in unusual arrangements. From the intergalactic cathedral sounds of 'The Long Journey Home: 1994' to the hard-hitting arena groove of 'Marryin' The Music', Futch weaves a dizzying web of musical layers and styles. Having been featured on National Public Radio, '70mm' has been entertaining listeners for over ten years; people who have commented that it's lilting melodies and thick arrangements make for a sound experience that's perfectly suited for driving, relaxing and nocturnal activities.
