    Portrait of the artist in three spectrums

    Michael Nyman fans should find themselves in minimalist heaven with this multi-media release from the noted composer. This nifty little box set includes a CD featuring a selection of cuts from Nyman’s record label (including pieces that have appeared in the soundtracks to “The Piano,” “The Draughtsman’s Contract” and “Prospero’s Books”); a DVD of his short film “50000 Photos Can’t Be Wrong,” which artfully blends still and moving images Nyman has taken in recent years accompanied by his music; and a small-format hard-bound book of his photographs from various series that play with concepts of time and space, reality and abstraction, energy and decay. Linking these discrete yet complementary mediums is Nyman’s trademark focus on simplicity and repetition, and his ability to create hypnotic visual echoes of his deceptively complex—and emotionally satisfying—musical constructs.
