It goes without saying that we’ve got some talented contributors here at The Contrarian. We just received news at HQ that one of our favorite musicians (and regular Contrarian scribe) Neil Cleary is about to make his television soundtrack debut — tomorrow night, no less!
This Monday (Feb. 8th) at 10pm, PBS will broadcast “Blueprint America: Beyond The Motor City,” a documentary about urban infrastructure that features music by Neil. Here’s what he has to say about the flick and its soundtrack:
“[The movie] focuses on the growth, decay and future of Detroit and looks to high-speed rail in Spain and California for inspiration, which gave me the opportunity to have fun with all sorts of Motown, Spanish and futuristic computer-y sounds. It’s the first thing of its kind I’ve done and I actually haven’t even seen a final cut myself, so tune in and see it with me for the first time!”
You don’t have to tell me twice. Here’s a link to the show’s site, which has a trailer and a handful of clips.
It always makes me happy to see our crew making things happen out there in the world. And if you want further confirmation of the talent ’round here, check out Susan Norton‘s post from yesterday.
