Molforts - Les Musiques Per A Albert Serra 4xLP
Label: Urpa I Musell
Edition of 347.
Urpa I Musell feels very fortunate to announce its third release after a long period of fertile collaboration with the film production company Andergraun Films: the 4-LP Box Set Les Musiques per a Albert Serra by the inscrutable band Molforts.
The box set puts together the main musical works that the band created between 2006 and 2018 for the Catalan film director Albert Serra. It includes the soundtracks for three films, Honor de cavalleria / Honour of the Knights (2006), Historia de la meva mort / Story of My Death (2013) and La mort de Louis XIV / Last Days of Louis XIV (2016); two art pieces, Cubalibre (2012, Documenta, Kassel) and Singularity (2015, Biennale di Venezia); and the recent play Liberte (2018, Volksbühne, Berlin).
Albert Serra is considered one of the most singular, radical and also controversial filmmakers working today. Tirelessly seeking never-before-seen images, his films and other works are characterised by an improbable balance between wild freedom and exquisite sophistication.
The band Molforts are the creators of all the music in his works and integral members of the creative milieu around Andergraun Films. Their work links intimately with the pieces it is made for. The relationship between music and image is deeply eloquent, not obvious, resulting in unique, suggestive soundscapes.
For the first time we can enjoy the music of Molforts in its own right. The recontextualization of the recordings, without the images that they deeply evoke, offers us the opportunity to listen to them in a fascinating, new way that is not to be missed!
