With The Island Come True, his fourth L. Pierre release and the first since 2007's Dip, Moffat has found a spiritual kinship with fellow Scot and author J.M. Barrie, most famous for his Peter Pan stories. Moffat was keen to toy around with his collages, adding his own electronic flourishes to help round things out. But on The Island Come True, he's done away with any sort of tinkering, leaving his combinations of these existing pieces to speak for themselves.

Using crackling piano suites, field recordings, found loops and swelling bits of dusty classical pieces, Moffat has crafted something similarly antique and unexpectedly dark, a moving if not fractured album that feels congruent with Barrie's mix of the fantastic and the fearful. At one moment, you're floating a gondola down the Styx as a hair-raising concertina plays on in the background ("Harmonic Avenger"), and the very next you're being treated to a minute and a half of rusty, tumbling drums ("Drums")

About "Destino" (2003) - its production originally began in 1945, 58 years before its eventual completion.

The six-minute short follows the love story of Chronos and the ill-fated love he has for a mortal woman. The story continues as the woman dances through surreal scenery inspired by Dalí's paintings. There is no dialogue, but the soundtrack includes music by the Mexican composer Armando Dominguez. The 17 second original footage that is included in the finished product is the segment with the two tortoises (this original footage is referred to in Bette Midler's host sequence for The Steadfast Tin Soldier in Fantasia 2000, as an "idea that featured baseball as a metaphor for life").
