The Belly of An Architect

Where Peter Greenaway's movies usually are accompied by compositions from Michael Nyman, "The Belly of an Architect"(1987) forms a remarkable exception. The score was mainly provided by Wim Mertens, containing three pieces which were personally selected by Greenaway out of Mertens' earlier work -4 Mains, Struggle for Pleasure and Close Cover- and four other compositions Mertens created for the film. Additional music was delivered by American avant-gardist composer Glenn Branca, providing some kind of obscure piece of mind to the listener.

Franstalige pop, alhoewel, 't lijkt me iets te experimenteel om onder die noemer te vallen... "Pop" doet me trouwens veeleer aan wibra en goldprince denken dan aan muziek en zang zoals op le fil (de rode draad is de toon die doorheen het hele album kronkelt).
'Le sac de filles' loont ook de moeite. Video's enzo vind je op le sac des fans. Nouvelle Vague is een project met een aantal andere zangeressen, waarbij ze (oude) new-age versnijden tot de puurste bossa nova. Sesam wordt geopend met het woord "melting".
