Karl Jenkins and Mike Ratledge both have a number of
things in common. Primarily both were members of that
revered British band Soft Machine and both are composers
of note. Karl Jenkins is perhaps best known for his album
Adiemus which was a massive international hit which has
spawned a number of successful follow up albums.
Both musicians have also been involved in the composition and production of what is known as "Library music" for a great many years. This genre of music has been in existence for many years and involves the composition and recording of music for film and television which can then be taken "Off the Shelf" for various film and television programmes. It can also be specially commissioned music for specific projects. Movement was originally recorded for Rouge Music in 1982 and due to the connection to the two musicians this album has been popular with fans of Soft Machine and of course fans of the individual talents of both Mike Ratledge and Karl Jenkins. Tracks include, Breakneck, Clockwork Racer, Pulse No. 3 and Penny Farthing.
