Prog Reviewer
3 stars "Connecting Images" is a rather unusual CD. The Hungarian composer Julius DOBOS wrote the music in 1998, at the request of Nokia Ltd. The CD was distributed with mobile phones and it reached 60.000 people in Hungary alone. Through the music, Julius is trying to explain the difference among the various models of Nokia's mobile phones. Of course you can always question the artistic freedom and integrity with such commercial projects, but the music is however very atmospheric, sometimes quiet and beautiful and sometimes bombastic, although I can't say whether Julius succeeded in picturing the different Nokia models. The music is very varied, so obviously there are many differences between the models. Julius plays the main part, but there are also some additional musicians, such as the Grammy Award winner Márta Sebestyén who sings traditional Hungarian vocal, as well as The Budapest Monteverdi Choir. The album was mixed on 92 channels, so you can imagine the musical richness. Sometimes the music is reminiscent to the Hungarian composer Attila HÉGER, aka under the pseudonym Al NORDER and LAREN D'OR. "Connecting Images" is like a soundtrack for Nokia. The CD-booklet is like a product catalogue for Nokia but without images. Instead the music does the talking.
