Michael Nyman followed a traditional music education at the Royal Academy of Music and King's College London. Apparently turning his back on Classical Music traditions, he spent some time collecting examples of Romanian Folk Music before moving behind the scenes to work as a musicologist and critic. Though Nyman was to score several soundtracks for Greenaway, it was for a different director, Jane Campion, that Nyman's best known work was produced. The soundtrack to The Piano clearly illustrates his minimalist style, and yet demonstrates that it is both approachable and effective in this medium. Nuremberg - TV Mini-Series.

Taking a Walk Lyrics: Scott Storch, Ooh, so they think I wanna die, yeah, 'Cause my doors are suicide, yeah, Bet my coffin would be nice, yeah, Stud that bitch up with some ice, yeah, These people. Trippie Redd takes a juxtapositional approach on Taking A Walk, the title coupled with the airy instrumental create a light-hearted and happy ambiance. Despite this, Trippie is actually referencing death which contrasts with the happy sounding beat. While he initially posted a snippet of this song in December of 2017, it was deleted and re-uploaded in early March 2018. Trippie released the song on August 6, 2018, as part of the pre-release for his first studio album, LIFE’S A TRIP, which was later released on August 10 of the same year. Taking a Walk" Track Info.

This is a very confusingly presented release.

The front cover and booklet give the artist as "The Zoo II" but the back cover states "The Zoo Duet", while the spine and hub do not give the artist at all but only list Michael Nyman.

The back cover and inside booklet also give the title as being "Music For Two Pianos".

Recorded february - march 1994 at the floating earth piano suite
