Harmonia Mundi has announced the release of a new album titled Wind by groundbreaking jazz trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf. Asked by the French national film library to compose music for a film of his choosing from among the silent movies in the Albatros catalog, Maalouf selected Ren√© Clair’s 1927 film La Proie du vent (The Prey of the Wind).

The project allowed Maalouf to fulfill two wishes – first to compose for a film, and second to compose a piece that could be very much inspired by Miles Davis’ music for Louis Malle’s Ascenseur pour l’√©chafaud, but using a quarter-tone trumpet.

I wanted to reproduce that mysteriously melancholic atmosphere, dripping with suspense, contributing a discreet yet powerful Arabic hue, blended into the typical jazz quintet played for many years by Miles,” says Maalouf of the album’s theme.
