It was Massive Attack’s stately, cinematic sound – together with Neil’s longstanding affinity with visual mediums, of course – that lent his scoring for film, TV and advertising an air of inevitability. After auteur Luc Besson came to Neil and Robert Del Naja of Massive to commission music for his 2005 martial arts thriller Unleashed (Danny The Dog), a swathe of other, attractively varied coups followed. Among them were score for the films Bullet Boy and Battle In Seattle, advertising campaigns for Jaguar and Adidas, and Neil’s collaboration with Snoop Dogg while scoring music for In Prison My Whole Life, a documentary about US death-row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal.
