In 1996, the Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF) commissioned Mental Overdrive and Biosphere to compose an original soundtrack for the Russian silent movie ‘Man with a Movie Camera’ by director Dziga Vertov. The duo split the work between them by selecting alternating scenes throughout the film, in order to make the 1 hour and 8 minute soundtrack as varied as possible. The first screening with this new soundtrack performed live took place in Tromsø in January 1996, and then a series of concerts/screenings followed at selected festivals in Norway and France. Biosphere released his pieces of the soundtrack as part the 2001 version of his ‘Substrata’ album, but the Mental Overdrive body of work has not yet been available – until now.
