Klangbad es como un Primeravera Sound versión underground

KLANGBAD: AVANT-GARDE IN THE MEADOWS

¿De qué va?
Klangbad: Avant-garde in the meadows nos traslada en vivo y en directo al famoso festival "Klangbad" organizado por Hans Joachim Irmler, uno de los miembros fundadores de la banda "Faust."
¿Quién está detrás?
Los críticos han denominado a Dietmar Post y Lucía Palacios como la respuesta alemana a los directores americanos D. A. Pennebaker y Chris Hegedus. Ellos son los responsables de acercarnos el Festival Klangbad a filmin

The film conveys the homespun brilliance of the festival in straightforward fashion, (...) with unpretentious handheld camerawork, which allows the film makers to roam around the location and soak in the atmosphere.

Dietmar Post and Lucía Palacios´ film reveals the 2005 incarnation of the Klangbad Festival as an orderly place full of disorderly music.
(Ian Harrison, Mojo)

While not exactly a walk in the park despite the setting, the world of this concept is definitely an attractive one if you just let the sound wash around you. Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios have put together another fine project, taking the blueprint of direct cinema and skewing it slightly to create a study of what would otherwise take place completely removed from the pulsebeat.

Ein Film der Neuen Sachlichkeit.

Faust: Live at Klangbad Festival was released in 2010 by Play Loud Productions Berlin, paired up with Klangbad: Avant-garde in the Meadows, a documentary of the Klangbad festival itself. The Faust performance film, featuring the band led by Jochen Irmler and Arnulf Meifert, ranges from structured rock to spaced abstractions, industrial soundscapes to acid drenched fuzz-jazz. Stephen Wray Lobdell's multi-textured guitar talents are literally mind blowing. Both films together make for perhaps the ultimate documentation of the Faust musical experience and the legacy they have engendered within the experimental genre. This 2for1 package may be one of the best "experimental music" productions of the decade.
