Blanck Mass Presents... TSCOYBT

    Death Waltz Originals are proud to present a spectacular new record curated by Blanck Mass & commissioned exclusively by the East End Film Festival, an alternative score to the 2013 film THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS, directed by Bruno Foranzi and Helene Cattet. A full-on homage to the Italian giallo films from Mario Bava and Dario Argento, the original release of the film had no original score and instead used music from existing giallo films.

    Edinburgh musician Ben Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) devised to use this as a stage for experimentation and collaboration with several artists from across the globe. Each artist was given a scene to work with and was given complete free reign to score the scene how they wanted to, without any knowledge of what was planned for the film by the other musicians. Contributions came from Stockholm’s Roll The Dice, London’s Helm, Moon Gangs, and Phil Julian, Glasgow’s Konx-Om-Pax, and New York’s C. Spencer Yeh, as well as Blanck Mass. The end result is a fascinating score that enthrals, seduces, and terrifies in equal measure. Due to be performed live later in 2015, THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS re-score is a testament to the quality of alternative artists working today, as well as evidence of the ongoing inspiration that Italian horror continues to supply to contemporary art.

    Dust Witch


      Debut release from Dust Witch. A 5-piece synth outfit that recall the heyday of 70's prog rock. Their sound is tight, complex and densely layered - recalling Goblin at their most fluid, and Yes during their most wigged out moments. What sets them apart from their current synth wave contemporaries is not only their exceptional song writing skills but the addition of live drums & guitar which gives their dense sound an extra kick, and a very human element missing from most current synth acts operating today. This 7-Inch single, pressed on 140g vinyl features artwork by Daniel Danger.

      Full length three track solo album from Timothy Fife recommended for fans of Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and early Brian Eno.

      "Sydney At Night" is a brooding dark synth monster as eerie as it is unsettling, "Low Plain Landscape" is a hauntingly beautiful 13 minute ambient workout and rounding out the LP is "Black Carbon" itself, an intense hard edged synth track that bubbles with intensity and heavily processed voices that sounds like an alien radio broadcast.

      Limited to 250 copies UK. LP comes with a download code for full LP plus an exclusive digital bonus track ‘Alebedesque’.

      It's never a dull week when a new Pye Corner hits my desk, and this week is no exception. The Spiral is a shiny new suite of soundtracky churners, not entirely dissimilar to Mr Jenkins' early work for the Black Mill Tapes ; deeply powerful cinematic synthesis but stepped up a few BPM to be more in line with the most recent Ghost Box output. 

      We kick things off with the throbbing dystopian chase-music of 'Do You Hear Them' titled perfectly, bringing to mind the onset of adrenalised panic upon sensing impending danger. Quickly pushing towards the 'Flight' side of the phisiological response spectrum, shunning agression for quick-footed arpeggios and snappy toms, settling into a more relaxed but still emotionally charged close. As we move into 'Wake Up', the true majesty of this futuristic polarised wasteland comes into full panoramic view. Bassy churns are ridden with a saturated lead line, majestic and powerfully cinematic, before continuing into 'It May Not Be Real' which continues this theme but cleverly takes things in an altogether more sinister direction. The lead line becomes fractured and terse while the ambient churns form into menacing subby throbs and beatless rhythm. 

      Flip over and 'The Spiral' is by far the most direct offering on this visceral cinematic masterpiece, with soaring skittering melodies chirping around in the background while bit-crushed lead lines soar around the skittering percussion and heavily reverbed snare stabs. As it draws to a close, we segue into the concise closing duo of 'Descent and 'It Is Real', Brilliantly summarising this futuristic construction with optimistic but melancholic synthplay perfectly offset with graceful ambient restraint and simmering saturation. 


      Barry says: Pye Corner Audio continues his foray into the realms of pseudo-soundtrackery, but this time opting for a near-beatless representation of the futuristic worlds he is so adept at constructing. Punctuated with ambient interludes, 'The Spiral' takes its time to portray the dystopian crumbling society. One of the true masters of cinematic synthesis, and still at the top of his game. IT IS REAL.
