Jeff Mills once again indulges his passion for classic sci-fi with this 2CD re-imagining of the score to Harry Kleiner s titular 66 flick. It follows his -Cyborg 2087- recreation and imaginary soundtracks for -The Power- and -The Occurence- with a deep voyage of discovery. But unlike the aforementioned. the original film plot - about a team of scientists who re miniaturized and dispatched inside a human body to fix a blood clot - thematic scales are inversed and we re drawn to Mills inner. as opposed to outer. space-scapes. The action unfolds across 22 tracks and 2 CDs. from bleepin. womb-like viscera and hazardous noise bursts through archetypal rhythm arrangements and fluid programming reflecting the man/machine. organic/synthesized themes of the film and his own alien/human aesthetic. It s wonderful to witness Mills maturing as a composer and refining his art to something beyond a soundtrack for dancefloor rituals. but without ever losing his original blueprint. and showing that the line between cinematic imagination and dancefloor functions can be a very fine one.
