Accompanying his album Film Works, Piano Works (2004, Sanctuary Music / Universal) is a more personal endeavour, seeing Craig Armstrong return to the simplicity of the piano to create stripped-down versions of themes for films such as the BAFTA award-winning Moulin Rouge!
Also included are new works, where Armstrong brings in Berlin electronic artist AGF to elicit a sound that rests firmly in the modern age. Armstrong says of the album: ‘The piano has always been a very personal form of musical expression for me. It was important for me to involve an electronic element within the album to place the record in the 21st century, not as a reverie in the past but a piece of work that looks forward.’
