Music for Stage and Screen features original music composed and constructed by Lee Ranaldo for a film soundtrack as well as for theatre plays produced in Italy and the USA. Most of the material on this CD is based around collaborative recording sessions with Alan Licht, Christian Marclay, William Hooker and Günter Müller. The final tracks came less from real-time playing than from constructions created in the studio, utilizing sometimes brutal and abstract looped pastiches of various recorded guitar material. According to Ranaldo, "During the progress of creating these cues some of these projects overlapped and certain cues were utilized in more than one setting; thematic material shows up in different variants as the projects demanded." The result is a total of nineteen tracks, some lasting barely a minute in length, that can be compared to some of Sonic Youth's recent instrumental EPs. This release runs 56 minutes in length.
