Published Feb 12, 2015Hot on the heels of last year's It Is Time for You to Return, Dutch lute player Jozef Van Wissem is digging into the vaults to release a film score from 2012. His Partir to Live: Original Soundtrack Recording will be released on LP and DVD through Sacred Bones on March 31.
This Chilean film was directed by Domingo Garcia-Huidobro (of Föllakzoid), and most screenings have featured a live soundtrack perform by Van Wissem and the director. According to a press release, the "score for the film consists of appropriated 12-string electric guitar drone, black baroque lute mirror images, and minimal electronics."
For a taste of this, hear the tracks "Eiditic Reduction" and "Ex Cathedra" in the player embedded below. Both of them are icy, abstract and unsettling.
Also below, see a trailer for the film. The flick is described as "a non-narrative experience into sensations, into ethical confusion and into physical and psychic contusions."
Partir to Live: Original Soundtrack Recording will include both the score on vinyl and the film on DVD. It's being pressed in a limited run of 1,000 copies.
Speaking of Föllakzoid, their album III will be out on Sacred Bones on March 31.
