Tuxedomoon - Vapour Trails (2007)
"Vapour Trails" is a highly experimental futuresound album which plays around with textural and tonal quality whilst featuring enormous detail and meticulous arrangements. This does not mean that it's not melodious and that it doesn't rock because it certainly does. The production values are integral to this as Tuxedomoon create a warm, organ and wide soundstage which creates real cohesion. Tuxedomoon has ultimately created an album which has achieved the great feat of occupying both territories; popular and avant-garde, and as such, "Vapour Trails" is a highly listenable album which will continue to reward the listener way into the future. "Vapour Trails" has been released on the 30th anniversary of Tuxedomoon and as part of the celebrations, a limited edition version of this album will be released whilst the band embark on a 17-date European tour.

Tuxedomoon - Holy Wars (1985)
"Holy Wars": TM's most mature album also happens to be their best-seller, and is released all around the world. Recorded in 1985 while the band are at the peak of their popularity in Europe. Some of the most poignant and moving songs ("Some Guys", "In a Manner of Speaking", "Bonjour Tristesse", "Holy Wars"), and new instrumental colours: Blaine Reininger has left the band, and is replaced by Dutch trumpet and harmonica player Luc van Lieshout. Among other subjects, the lyrics are about wandering in the new European megapolis: Wim Wenders recognizes some of his own obsessions, and uses "Some Guys" in the opening scenes of "The Sky Above Berlin".

Blaine L. Reininger & Mikel Rouse - Colorado Suite & A walk in the woods - Made To Measure Vol. 3&6 (1984)

Colorado Suite is a colaboration with the one and only Blaine Reininger. Rouse met Reininger while living in Belgium in 1983. Rouse was supporting the release of Tirez Tirez's Story of The Year and Broken Consort's Jade Tiger. Rouse and Reininger hit it off and started work on a mini LP for the Crammed Disc label. This led to a UK/European tour with Blaine as front man and violinist and Rouse manning the keyboards. All of this performed to a trusty Roland sequencer, marking Rouse's (but not Reininger's) first use of sequencing in live performance. Rouse would go on to uss e this idea in his large scale multi-media chamber operas.

Steven Brown - Music For Solo Piano (1984)

The Tuxedomoon band was formed in 1977 out of San Francisco, with original members Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger, Peter Principle and Winston Tong establishing a sound and concept that to many listeners was just as much a part of the original Ralph records aesthetic as the much better-known Residents band. Tuxedomoon signed with Ralph and released the albums Half Mute and Desire in 1980 and 1981 respectively, during a period when the label was pumping a fortune into cryptic advertising in the type of mainstream periodicals previously off limits to indie labels. Soon thereafter, Brown and company relocated to Europe in order to focus on purely avant garde concerns, beginning with residencies in Rotterdam and Brussels. The group's subsequent output appeared on a grab-bag of labels, with the ambitious 1982 "Ghost Sonata", described as "an opera without words," remaining an opera withou a release for nearly a decade.

Blaine Reininger and Steven Brown are the creative mainsprings behind cult avant garde band Tuxedomoon. As well as collaborating on several film and stage soundtracks, the pair have also regularly performed live as a piano/sax/violin duo since 1984. This CD captures (with crystal clear sound) one of their best recitals, at the Teatro Sao Luis in Lisbon, Portugal, on 21 November 1989. Highlights include Iberia and Arrivee Dans Le Jour, Ghost Sonata extracts such as The Fall and Licorice Stick Ostinato, and Tuxedomoon classics Volo Vivace and Litebulb Overkill - the first ever song written by Reininger and Brown. Long unavailable, Live In Lisbon has now been digitally remastered with two extra tracks and features extensive sleevenotes, and new artwork.
As well as representing two-thirds of the acclaimed avant garde act Tuxedomoon, Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger have delivered a number of live performances together as a violin and piano duo. The 'Live In Lisbon' CD records the double act in 1989. Beautifully remastered, the studio quality of this recording of modern classical music is a document of the partnership at its peak. The opening 'Iberia' is a mournful piece rivalling Ravel's 'Bolero' for swooning grace, Reininger's solo piano compositions drip with an elegiac quality and 'L'Arrivee Dans Le Jour' is a piece of pastoral loveliness. Brown and Reininger could sometimes be an inconsistent act; often substituting experimentalism in favour of emotion and melody but this is a definite exception to that view.
Reininger would team up with Steven Brown for the 1890-1990: One Hundred Years Of Music live set, recorded in Portugal, and put out in March 1990. Recorded Live in Portugal Teatro Sao~ Luis Nov. 21 1989. Sound: Stefan Kraemer. Music: Reininger - Brown

Music Composed by Hans Zimmer

Director Guy Ritchie used the soundtrack from the film The Dark Knight by Zimmer as temporary music during editing. Zimmer was pleased when Ritchie asked him to do the score but told him to do something completely different. Zimmer described his score to Ritchie as the sound of the Pogues joining a Romanian orchestra. For the musical accompaniment, composer Hans Zimmer used a banjo, cimbalom, squeaky violins, and a "broken pub piano". At first Zimmer had his own piano detuned, but found that it sounded out of tune. He asked his assistant to locate a broken piano. The first piano they located was passed over as it obviously had been cared for, but the second one was the one they used in the production. Zimmer said "We rented 20th Century Fox’s underground car park one Sunday and did hideous things to a piano.
The Irish folk song The Rocky Road to Dublin as sung by The Dubliners is used during the boxing match and when Holmes fights with the Frenchman and in the final credits.
