Mathieu Serruys - On Germaine Dulac LP 26940
On Germaine Dulac is the debut LP by Belgian musician Mathieu Serruys. B.A.A.D.M. com­missioned Serruys to revisit Germaine Dulac, female pioneer of the early experimental film. Loosely inspired by moods, scenes and scen­eries of La Coquille et le Clergyman (1928), Serruys creates a sound spectrum that reflects the bewildered states of mind that mark her avant-garde masterpiece. Atmospheres range from fierce monumentality to delicate emo­tions, evoked by eroded textures and brittle two-tone melodies. Maltreatments of broken tape recorders, instable sound constructions and instant technical seizures mirror the shaken universe of distorted cinema. On Germaine Dulac is the result of a surprising confrontation between disciplines and collocutors separated in time and space.
