ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Listening to Reg Length magically transports you deep into your imagination and away from the movies. That in itself is a very rare gift. A soundtrack to your very own film. ”

High praise indeed, but often heard when I hear about this composer/multi-instrumentalist/arranger/producer, and upon receiving my copy of Electric Cinema I can see and hear why.

A composer as talented and prolific as Reg Length is not likely to rest on his laurels. He appears at home doing television or motion picture scores, standards, pop, rock, jazz, exotica, contemporary, electronica or just about any genre as this compilation clearly demonstrates. His musical perfection, tasteful arrangements and professionalism shine through. At times you'll think you're listening to a compilation by Bill Conti/Barry Adamson 'Punching High', Henry Mancini 'Fare Thee Well Mayfair', John Barry, Williams 'Dreams For Strings', Roy Budd 'Cold War Baby', Vangelis 'How Insignificant Are You?', Francis Lai 'L'erruer Est Humane', Eno 'Air Angels Ambience', Herrmann 'Wake Up Boring Little World' and many many more, but I assure you, what you're in fact listening to is the original sound of someone who pays the greatest tribute to any artist or composer, by emulating them, and believe me, that's only one fraction of his talent. Listen to 'Heading Nowhere Fast' & 'You And Your Longest Day' and you'll get to hear the originality of a composer who not only creates, but also injects passion and soul into each soundtrack.

Born in South London during the seventies, Reg discovered music at a time when punk burst onto the scene and everyone took notice. Fascinated, he taught himself the three chords needed, was gigging by the time he was fourteen and was already attracting label interest. It wouldn't be until his late teens that this talent was to gain interest from bigger Independent Labels ZTT, Elemental, Nude, Satellite. Gaining more musical knowledge and increasing his instrument ability, Reg got disillusioned with the band format and took to learning music production using technology. He also formed a new duo act Soap Operatic Society with close friend Donna Mack. Currently on hiatus with an album in production, Reg took to the world of film score. Firstly for Sebastien Du Mont (electronic music composer/Rhonnda Radio DJ/ Artist) on a piece called My Pretty Soul then for Gordon Eightball (Photographer/Film Maker/Composer) of Radiation Ranch Films on Cold War Baby & now:zero. Two architectural Brutalist short films shot in Birmingham. After this, the tracks came thick and fast along with the films, and it was suggested an album be put together. “I had an idea to do an album of soundtracks after loads of people I played them too said they imagined being whisked away somewhere else when they heard a specific track......” So here it is. 16 different scenes you can explore using your imagination. Made easier by someone who can get you there simply through music.

“I love soundtracking. You see one vision and you put this accompaniment together to go hand in hand with it. It shouldn't be the last thing to go in. It's obvious how important music is to people, so why anyone would want to just put something in is beyond me. If you can quote the line, describe the scene, you should be able to hum the melody surely?” Reg Length

Reg understands the importance of music. He teaches music specialising in working alongside people with special needs. “It's the ultimate communication tool, especially when there is no recognised form of communication.”

I hope you enjoy these tracks as much as I do. Reg is currently working on more tracks and looking to collaborate with more people, having already gained attention and praise from some of the film industries finest.
