Steve Potts

Musique pour le film d’un ami
SouffleContinue Records ffl062

More than a trifle, but less than a major statement, Musique pour le film d’un ami is an attractive curiosity and the one time American-in-Paris Steve Potts composed the soundtrack for a film. The year was 1975, director Joaquín Lledó was a friend, and the now largely forgotten film was Sujet ou Le secrétaire aux 1001 Tiroirs, about a Spanish director trying to make a film in France. Dealing with soundtrack demands with themes ranging from one to a little more than six minutes, the 11 selections are by necessity a pastiche. MORE
