"Project Nim is the follow up to director James Marsh's Oscar-winning film Man On Wire. Mirroring the principles and techniques of a traditional film biography to the life story of an animal, we watch a baby chimpanzee named Nim lead a most unconventional existence. Bolstering the prime archival footage and contemporary interviews is a newly composed and original score by Tindersticks founding member Dickon Hinchliffe (Winter's Bone, Trouble Every Day), the third release from Light In The Attic Records' Cinewax imprint. Existing somewhere between Air's Virgin Suicides, the Jean-Claude Vannier assisted instrumental backdrop of Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire de Melody Nelson (LITA 040CD), and Michael Nyman's most effective work, Project Nim's evocative soundtrack serves to enhance the gripping tale of animal/human interaction. As Nim's extraordinary life unfolds onscreen, a sonic backdrop comprised of various stringed instruments and sympathetic percussion stir pools of deep feeling and showcase dynamic range."
