The Cameraman's Revenge (Film Music Volume 4)

by Rashomon

supported by


“The Cameraman´s Revenge” is the 4th release under the Rashomon name, and the first on Cineploit. The music was composed as two long soundtrack pieces to accompany silent movies by Russian filmmaker Ladislaw Starewicz. “The Cameraman´s Revenge” itself is an early Surrealist masterpiece from 1912, in which Starewicz animated the corpses of dead insects to tell a tale of infidelity and revenge. The soundtrack is a carnival-esque tour-de-force of folk-concrete, utilising harmoniums, jawharps, vintage synthesisers, an array of oddball percussion and more.

“The Mascot” (1933) is a bizarre and disturbing film for children, and Rashomon’s soundtrack reflects this darkness with shifting drones, ominously melodic waltzes and minimalist organ fugues over the course of its 25 minute length.

The limited vinyl edition includes a DVD featuring both films, accompanied by Rashomon’s music.
