Franz Zwartjes – Zwartjes. Tapes 1 LP
Essential collection of Zwartjes works.
“This LP represents the first ever sound recordings from the archive of cult Dutch arthouse film director Frans Zwartjes. The sound is unlike anything you may have heard – dream-like, disjointed, peculiar, unexpected and totally unique.
Frans Zwartjes is a unique talent, Zwartjes produced, directed and edited his own films (his last work was in 1991), but more importantly he created and improvised the soundtracks too.
The music, sound and speech have been put together as two long, seamless sequences; they are dreamlike, peculiar, plugged-in, prescient and unlike any other soundtrack we have heard. Tapes 2 will follow in due course.”
