One Way Static Records presents: Jörg Buttgereit’s Der Todesking (Original 1989 Expanded Motion Picture Soundtrack by DAKTARI LORENZ, HERMANN KOPP & JOHN BOY WALTON. Jörg Buttgereit is a Berlin based writer and director known for his controversial movies. The film that got the most attention and started of his career was no doubt Nekromantik from 1987. Nekromantik became an international cult film that was banned in several countries. Two years later, in 1989 Jörg directed Der Todesking (The Death King). This experimental style movie, which does not use central characters, explores the topic of suicide and violent death in the form of seven episodes, each one attributed to one day of the week. These episodes are enframed by the vision of a human body, slowly rotting during the course of the movie. Daktari Lorenz, Hermann Kopp & John Boy Walton make up the holy trio of composers called upon by film maker Jörg Buttgereit. Between the three of them they produced some of the most haunting and beautiful tracks to be paired up with Buttgereit’s controversial on-screen works of art. The Lo-Fi synthesizer music in the movie is dark and quirky and contributes an essential part of the movie’s atmosphere, and is something you would very, very rarely hear otherwise. The score for displays the dynamic ability and range of the composers. It strikes a perfect balance of beauty, horror, joy and dissonance. The score is both minimalistic and hauntingly atmospheric at the core, and yet remarkably complex at the same time. A wide variety of instruments and sound effects are utilized throughout it’s making.
