Based on a sample discovered during the process of studying the representation of cities via the media of film, 'The Plot (Thickens)' is an edit of a piece by James Newton Howard taken from the soundtrack of the 1992 David Mamet film, 'Glengarry Glen Ross'.
Dark intensity pervades the film and is translated in the pulsating house track via the sonic reflection of an unforgiving urban landscape. Rain hitting steel train tracks. Neon lights oscillating with attraction. The knock on the door of the desperate salesman cashing in on someone's dreams. The pulse of the city emanates though in a noir filter while the forlorn sax calls out from the street, originally performed by Wayne Shorter. Strings swirling through the soundscape like the undercurrent of the hopeless city. The story of the city is always there, and this one just adds some context and perspective.
