Runtime: 67'59''

«Nuno Meneses, under his Pitch Boys moniker, brings us a new work, thought and worked out as a soundtrack to a non-existant film. The task of writing the script is left to us to complete. Or we can sit back and choose to let Nuno help with that.
Movie starts. Soundtrack comes up. Voiceovers, and sampled dialogues from films, kick in at some places throughout the narrative, linking possible scenes of the picture between each other, guiding the listener seamlessly until the end of the first take, a hefty hour long one. The opening credits and the story are in this one. There aren't subtitles, but we can understand what kind of story is being told. There are action scenes, love moments, sad stories. All wrapped up in intelligently made breakbeats, dub flavored basslines, detroit techno moves, tension harmonics and danceable rhythms. Plus some ambient and soothing parts, which aren't usual in Pitch Boys's style.
Track 2 could be director's cut material of any kind. Something that was censored, an explicit sex scene, or a violent murder. The listener is free to make its own and very personal reading, and that is the most enjoyable thing while listening to conceptual music: you can be in control, if you wish. You are the projector guy.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«I have the pleasure to listen to another Pitch Boys release, and just as expected, it is once again filled with precious electronic gems only forged by musicians that want to push the boundaries of electronica. Nuno Meneses drags you to his environment and lets you create your own vision, enjoying a fantastic voyage through a spectrum of sounds, taking you for a hell of a ride that you'll always be looking forward to repeat.»

«Pitch Boys - O.S.T. (Nuno Meneses / Test Tube) : Nouvelle réalisation délicate du label portugais Test Tube. O.S.T. est un album, une nouvelle fois, très visuel, rythmique et ambiant, mêlant différents univers avec une parcimonie assez étonnante. Track 01, morceau de plus d'une heure est découpé en plusieurs séquences très explicites. L'idée du projet est une bande son d'un film imaginaire. On comprend dès lors mieux la signification de l'ensemble, à la tonalité vaguement orientale. Inévitablement, on pense à certains moments à des B.O. de Vangelis, meilleure période (Blade Runner), d'Angelo Badalamenti ou encore de films suspens-sex italiens des années 70. Drôle de mélange...
Track 02, beaucoup plus court (tout de même 5 minutes), a un traitement plus expérimental que son prédécesseur, jouant sur des ondes et une rythmique assez curieuse. Très mélodique cependant. (...)»

«Caro Sr.Nuno Meneses/Pitch Boys : fiz o download do seu EP "O.S.T." e agora tomo a sua música em vez de "Prozac"; de facto penso que os seus temas/viagens são bastante compensadores em termos de sanidade mental para quem tem um horário das 9 às 5h.Tenho ouvido repetidamente o seu disco e continuo a gostar. Parabéns!!!»

«Subject: Journey Through Varied Soundscapes.
The first track on this excellent release kept my attention for the full 60+ minutes - an hour long journey through an amazing variety of sonic soundscapes. An almost surreal collage of sampled sounds, sparkling electronics, danceable rhythms with catchy bass lines, hints of ethnic (eg. eastern) melodies, stretches of wild, abstract beats, and interludes of orchestral-like ambience.
Track 2 is dark sounding composition full of sad melodies and brooding beats.»

«The Test Tube netlabel brings us the sound track to a film that doesn't exist. Track 01 is a 60 minute audio-cinema experience. Put it on, close your eyes and enjoy the show!»
