"Ravi Shankar has during his career composed and arranged soundtracks for serveral films, Chappaqua and a verision of Alice in Wonderland for example. This albumn consists of a soundtrack he arranged for a British art film called Viola. I cannot comment on the film as I have not seen it, it's plot consists of a man's growing beleif that his dead wife has returned as a cat to torment him, sounds very much like an Edgar Allen Poe type of tale.The titles and growing intensity of each track represent the varying stages of the characters madness. Listening to the albumn as a whole with out the film, gives you a window into the delerious and surrealistic world that Shankar has manifested in music so well. The rising drums and feverish sitar playing make for an absolutely brilliant soundscape that very few, if any, musicians could acheive.Ravi Shankar's genius is throughout this music and this CD perfectly complements any collection of his more traditional works."
