An earlier work from Rodrigo Leão.

Rodrigo Leão is a Portuguese musician and composer. He was born in Lisbon in 1964. He became known for his musical compositions and participation in Portuguese bands such as Madredeus and Sétima Legião.

Rodrigo was in 1982 one of the founding members of Sétima Legião, one of the most influential rock bands in Portugal's mid-1980s indie scene thanks to their judicious use of Celtic influences. In 1986, he started Madredeus with Pedro Ayres Magalhães and Sétima Legião's Gabriel Gomes as a sideline acoustic project – one that gained a life of its own and snowballed into international success. In 1993, Rodrigo showed yet another side of his creativity by releasing a mostly instrumental solo album in a neo-classical, minimalist mode, titled “Ave Mundi Luminar”. With Sétima Legião on a long break, in 1994 he left Madredeus to devote himself fully to his solo career; in it he explored the edges of modern classical music and contemporary pop, marrying electronics to string and horn sections, using a separate project, Os Poetas, to set to music words from some of Portugal's greatest poets.

But throughout all these roles two things kept reappearing in his work: film and songs. Madredeus had written the music for a Wim Wenders movie and many of his own instrumental pieces seemed like soundtrack music in search of a film; Rodrigo's 2004 album was called “Cinema”, and from then on his backing group became the Cinema Ensemble. And, as he moved further in his explorations of instrumental textures, he felt the need to return to the simplicity of the pop song.

Cinema was the sixth labor and fourth studio album by Rodrigo Leão, produced in 2004 and considered one of the best albums of that year by the editor of the American magazine Billboard.

Despite what the title might imply, this work of Rodrigo Leão isn`t composed of written material for movies or inspired by cinema (though many tracks withdraw his title of existing films like A Simple Story of David Lynch, or Happiness of Todd Solondz).
Here, away from its previous direction of mostly instrumental music and going to exploit the format of the song left in his solo career, the musician of the Sétima Legião proposes a hybrid of melodic instrumental involving names like Ryuichi Sakamoto and Pedro Jewelry and dramatic or light pop songs vocalized by Beth Gibbons (of Portishead), Rosa Passos, Helena Noguerra and Sonia Tavares (from the Gift). Always with a cinematic quality that justifies perfectly the title chosen for the disc - La Fête, Uma História Simples or Deep Blue could well be part of any soundtrack. Thus, we can build our own movie around this Cinema ...
