The Austrian composer and organist Wolfgang Mitterer cannot complain about a lack of success and yet the concept of the anthology »temp tracks« reads like an examination of failure. The title alludes to pieces of music with which film scenes are provisionally accompanied until the »proper« film music arrives. Pure placeholders, then, disposable products of the moving image industry—something like that? Think again. The 37, between half a minute and four and a half minutes long, mostly electronic pieces stand wonderfully on their own as atmospheric vignettes strung together, creating their very own atmospheres instead of merely serving as background music for moving images. Another success, in every respect.
