The Dorf / Achim Zepezauer - Das Ende Der Kohle [Umland Records 020]

Fresh and forthcoming on Umland Records is this new DVD collaboration between the improvisational ensemble known as The Dorf and artist / musician as well as The Dorf-member  Achim Zepezauer who, conducted and led by composer Jan Klare, created quite a visual trip starting off following an obviously poor and suffering artist - cliche galore! - into his sparse, greyscale and slightly depressing flat and kitchen before taking a surprising turn into stop-motion psychedelia, colourful repetition of previous motifs and tripping visualisms, all accompanied by a non-stop mixture of (Experimental) Jazz, DarkJazz, Funk and intense PostRock with a raw, vintage touch and smokey vibes as well a quite surprising cover version of a well known classic towards the films end. Furthermore we'll find a full recording of the movies live premier with all music performed live by the whole The Dorf ensemble alongside two more live recorded pieces performed at the same occasion - the movie premier on May 14th, 2k15 in Essen. Defo an outstanding release, not only for fans of Jazz / Experimental Jazz but also for followers of arthouse and experimental cinema for sure. Check!
