Portishead

PNYC


recorded with a full orchestra on a cold rainy day shortly after the release of their second record portishead the project doubled as a live album and the soundtrack for a bbc documentary in addition to being economical and perhaps lucrative the disc demonstrates how sampled and sequenced music can be recreated in concert without losing any of the charm or dynamics of the original recordings all it takes is a 22piece string section some horns and a band whose tightness is exceeded only by its creativity at times the performances on pnyc sound even more breathtaking and cinematic than portishead's original recordings as humming theremin skittery scratching and gliding strings mingle with stealthy guitar lines and sultry vocals for portishead sour times seem like a distant memory
