‘In the picture’ contains music from three feature films that Sid composed the music for. All films were directed by Saara Cantell.
For ‘The two and only / Ainoat oikeat’ (2013) the band consisted of Verneri Pohjola – trumpet, Pope Puolitaival – sax & flute, Teemu Viinikainen – guitar, Sid Hille – piano, Antti Lötjönen – bass and Teppo Mäkynen – drums.
For ‘Stars above / Tähtitaivas talon yllä’ (2012) the band consisted of Heikki Nikula – bass clarinet & clarinet, Eija Kankaanranta – kantele, Teemu Viinikainen – guitar, Sid Hille – piano, Sampo Lassila – bass and Markus Ketola – drums.
For ‘Heartbeats / Kohtaamisia’ (2010) the band consisted of Teppo Ali-Mattila – violin, Virpi Taskila – violin, Maarit Holkko – viola, Veli-Matti Iljin – cello, Sid Hille – piano and Sami Koskela – percussion.
While ‘The two and only / Ainoat oikeat’ has a swinging jazzy score, the music for ‘Stars above / Tähtitaivas talon yllä’ is beautifully atmospheric.
The somewhat melancholic music for ‘Heartbeats / Kohtaamisia’ was nominated for the Finnish film prize in 2010.
