true to form, ellis' locomotive soundtrack is utterly compelling, as it uses chugging train samples to inform its percussion & stunning synths that brilliantly capture that certain dreamy wooziness that comes with watching the world blur past your eyes.

My idea was to record, collate & produce the music on trains, in the spirit of the women in this documentary. Brian was so encouraging with this approach & told me about a train journey he had taken in the 80’s with no fixed destination. Over the next month I sat with my computer, loops, iPhone, Reface DX synthesiser & forgotten ideas & composed the music on the Metro & Eurostar & in various hotels while working on Ghosteen. I would send the pieces to Arno from the train, or wherever I was located, & he edited them into the film.” - Warren Ellis.
