The Bunny Boy was the 2008 project from the Residents, but it's much more than just an album. The album was inspired by the Bunny Boy Internet series, which also extended into the tour. Here's the supposed story: a friend of the Residents' has had his brother go missing, apparently on the island of Patmos in Greece. This friend ("Bunny") is a (mostly) computer illiterate man who spends most of his time in his "secret room." He's got some clues: postcards from Patmos and the contents of his brother Harvey's computer. From the secret room, he posts video messages (the webisodes) on the Internets hoping that people will help him find his Armageddon-obsessed brother (who went to Patmos because that's where St. John supposedly received the Book of Revelations).
Composer John Adams' album Road Movies contains five pieces that Adams' considers "travel music, (…) passing through harmonic and textural regions as one would pass through on a car trip." Indeed, during Leila Josefowicz's spirited and appropriately brusque reading of the "40% Swing" movement from the title work, one hears what sounds like a passing auto in the left channel. Is it mere coincidence or the album concept channeling onto the master tape?
Music can enrich and enhance the cinematic spectacle of some of movie historys greatest moments, and sometimes the music has a life of its own, beyond the confines of the silver screen. This collection from Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins brings together her most popular tributes to some of the greatest film themes and composers from some of the most popular movies of all time, including her interpretations of Everything I Do (I Do It For You) famous as the theme from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and I Will Always Love You made famous by its use in The Bodyguard.
