Blanck Mass – Ted K Ltd. (Rød Vinyl)

Ted K. Kaczynski is infamous both for the tragic murder of three people (and the wounding of 23 others) by bombs sent through the mail, and for his numerous writings on the evils of technology while living primitively in the woods of Montana. There is something ironic about director Tony Stone’s choice of renowned electronic artist Blanck Mass to score the film, creating an obvious tension that perfectly suits the controversial and complex subject matter.

Blanck Mass’ first film score was created in 2020 for the soundtrack to Nick Rowland’s acclaimed feature debut, Calm with Horses. This expansion into new areas of melodic composition and textural exploration gained Blanck Mass many new fans. Mark Kermode, the BBC’s acknowledged number one film lover, declared the work the soundtrack of the year. In 2021, Blanck Mass won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Film Score and has firmly established itself at the forefront of the latest wave of experimental soundscape wizards.

Beskrivelse

Ben Power of Blanck Mass had the perfect environment in his Edinburgh, Scotland, studio during lockdown for a piece of music that would capture the isolation central to Kaczynski’s story. Power also worked with a director whose time zone was 10 hours behind Kaczynski’s, so many sessions took place in the middle of the night, adding a special intensity to the composition process. “I wanted it to feel like an epic,” he said of the project, drawing inspiration from legends Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone to illustrate the energy of the struggle between good and evil. The gentle madness of the sounds achieved here is exquisite, slowly increasing in intensity and desperation as the score progresses. Power is able to perfectly capture the complexity, horror and deep emotionality of the film while presenting an often breathtakingly beautiful and always masterful album that stands on its own as a work of art. For fans of Tim Hecker, Oneohtrix Point Never, DJ Shadow, Coil, Arca, Andy Stott, Fuck Buttons.
