Blaudzun - 'Musik ungeklärter Herkunft’ - Out Now!

posted at 12/12/2019

Today Blaudzun releases his new soundtrack album 'Musik ungeklärter Herkunft'. The album is part of a Cobra Museum exhibition of expressive artist Sigmar Polke (1941 – 2010, Germany) starting from December 14th. The exhibition shows the 40-piece series of ‘Music from an Unknown Source’. Blaudzun selected nine favorite works from this Polke collection to compose nine pieces of music. The soundtrack will be played on a 3D audio system with different speaker-sources and contributes to an overall-experience of image, sound and space.

Blaudzun immediately was fascinated after seeing this Polke collection and speaking to the curator of Cobra Museum: “It felt very special to me. Not only because of the title – ‘music from an unknown source’, but also to find a way to create a soundtrack for nine paintings, which requires a different approach than composing music for film, for instance. I decided that I needed to write music for an audio surround installation.”

This 3D audio installation, so called 11.1 immersive audio, is often applied in cinemas and allows the visitors to experience the music as if you're in the centre of it. The combination of nine paintings and nine compositions creates an unique dialogue between Blaudzun and Sigmar Polke: “Based on first impressions, I started working on the compositions. Only after I saw the complete works at an exhibition in Zagreb I could arrange the songs and start recording. I decided to make big prints of paintings. Attached to the studio walls it provided for contant inspiration and an ongoing dialogue during the process.”

Blaudzun wrote and produced this soundtrack in various studios in The Netherlands and Germany. In New York he collaborated with Grammy-nominated mix engineer Ronald Prent, who created the immersive audio mix at Valhalla Studios.
