This three disc collection presents three very different modes of collaboration that Michael Nyman has been involved with in recent years. Acoustic Accordions [2009] The collaboration with the Motion Trio simply involved the accordionists 'translating' familiar Nyman music into their personal sound world.

“Nyman’s music is so wonderful it even sounds good on the accordion.” (Janusz Wojtarowicz, the Motion Trio) The Glare [2009] With 'The Glare’, the soul singer David McAlmont was encouraged to write his own vocal lines and lyrics to an agreed selection of Nyman’s pre-existing music. “once heard, you’ll want never want to live without it” (Independent on Sunday about The Glare,) Sangam [2012] 'Sangam' presents two compositions that Nyman jointly wrote with musicians from the Indian classical tradition: Khyal singers, Rajan and Sajan Misra and electric mandolinist, U. Shrinivas.
