KUBIN UND DAS MINERALORCHESTER, FELIX - MUSIC FOR THEATRE AND RADIOPLAY (CD)


"Right from the start Felix Kubin has written and recorded Music for Films and continues the German tradition of "Hörspiel" (Radio Play). Some of Kubin's most gorgeous and adventurous works are his contributions to "The Raft" (a Radio Play by the mysterious Xentos Bentos of The Homosexuals) and his soundtracks for theatre plays by Branko Simic and Schorsch Kamerun. The latter (of Goldene Zitronen) directed "Hollywood Elegien" based on a song cycle by Bert Brecht and Hanns Eisler. Now the best parts of these works are for the first time available on Lp/Cd. Hauntingly ethereal tracks sounding like a narcoleptic John Carpenter playing Angelo Badalamenti Arrangements; contorted Big Band music, pre-war Schlager and Vaudeville sent through a malfunctioning pre-digital time machine; Ennio Morricone Cloned As A Russian Male Choir; Instrumental Workers' Songs Hanns Eisler Might Have Imagined In A Feverish Nightmare."
