2008 : Music from : Faust / Le Paradis

Written & recorded between march and july 2007, finalised as an album in 2008. Created for the movie "Le Paradis" written & realised by videast (& friend) Gilles Lacombrade. The film is experimental but follows a narration based on the Faust myth : a journalist, Silke Speyer, decides to investigate on the mysterious Dr Foster, who seems gifted with eternal youth... The video is also a tribute to the classic silent movie "Faust" by Murnau.

"Pyramide" features a dialogue from the movie, said by Silke Hoeffs and Guillaume Escondeur. Thanks go to them.
"Silke et l'Ange" (Silke and the Angel) is based on a traditional german children's rhyme.

A few words about the movie and its soundtrack :

The soundtrack echoes the strangeness of the images : dialogs are either silent or disturbed. Tracks are full of dissonances and distorsions. Although they may seem very diverse, recurring themes and sonorities are linking the tracks together.
