Soundtracks For No Film Vol.1 is a perfect example of Acido's MO. It's a mini-compilation made of what feel like sketches rather than full-blown tracks, a bit like what you get on Actress's RIP. Madteo, SVN (an Acido regular) and Dreesvn (his duo with Dynamo Dreesen) all deliver extremely subtle ambient pieces. SVN's "Low," for example, is nothing but slow waves of low frequencies, and "Moonwalk" is barely a minute long. 291out, an artist who appears to make his debut on this release, delivers the best track here with "Urania (Titoli Di Coda)," a twinkling bit of krauty deep house (and the record's only 4/4 beat).
Soundtracks For No Film Vol.1 plays at 45 RPM, so the four A-side tracks fly by pretty quickly. Meanwhile, the entire B-side is devoted to one long piece: "Modul 32," a shimmering expanse of beatless synths from Norwegian producer Doc L Junior. Like the best Acido releases, it's as pretty as it is strange.
