Karneval: Movies

CD You can only buy it here ->

The group Karneval sends you their cd in a movie slip. Clever. For many, like me, you may pop in the DVD player to see if it has video. It doesn’t – but it plays! And, yes, now the DVD player rocks daily…

The group, based out of Serbia, has created a musical inspiration to a film they enjoy; hence the name of the CD. And they have the vocals in each in the language of the film; German, English, Serbian Spanish and Italian. Frankly, the works flow in an out of genius. But, I would say they all have a chance at scoring films if the group does not pan out.

The first track, Fitzcarraldo (film by Director Werner Herzog), introduces us to vocalist Milica Krstic. She has a wide range and you are drawn in. Remarkably different and alluring, while still being strong and clear; talent. The instruments are accompanied by some well-aimed sampling and beats that swish together to make a heady stir of things.

The second track, Wild at Heart (film by director David Lynch), again has Krstic’s vocals, but this time they bring you into a post apocalyptic Goth club somewhere in an out-zone. The music is very visual. Turn it up for the best effect.

Track three, Dvoje (film by director Aleksandar Petrovic), takes another turn. Celtic influences blend with an almost operatic Krstic. Piano keys tickles, flutes whispers enchanting notes and other instruments (including a military-esque drum riff) crescendo to meet in the middle of some samplings. It makes you want to hunt down the film.

Then in their fourth piece, Vuk Samotnjak, you’ll be served up delightfully ethereal samplings and a drum rythym as Krstic’s voice joins in. The production notes advise the film is about an abandoned dog, so that’s why there’s barking looped within I suppose. But, even not having seen the film, you’ll understand a war came, and a dog is not happy.

Karneval’s interpretation of Destino (the animated collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali), track five, has definately been over sampled. I want to re-record it with them, slapping the hand reaching for that sampling sound effect button! But, beneath the artistic hubalu there’s a great song fighting to get out. The talent behind the music is obvious and the instruments voice their player’s commands nicely; just a tad all-at-once a couple times.

The final offering is based on and titled, Le Notte Bianche (film by director Luchino Visconti). Karneval serves up a nice bit of melodrama musically within. There’s just all that sampling again. I am not a huge fan of the constant sampling – so it’s harder for me to be fair. Then out of the blue a piano section reminds you of the actual rich talent and artistic ability of the group, and you’re smiling again.

The cd comes complete with “movie” posters for each song in the insert. They tell you who plays what – though in different languages; some are tough to decipher. If you are into discovering different music being made around the world, get this compelling, often grand, often heady, six-pack of musical adventures. This is a talented group that needs a producer to rein them in – but not change their remarkable freshness and unique touches.

You can only Karneval’s Movies CD here ->

They’ll send it from far away for your audio pleasure:)

Karneval: Movies

Sound and inner sight come together in a very interesting way on Karneval’s
latest album, entitled Movies. The six songs featured are all inspired by particular movies, and are formatted accordingly. Karneval didn’t just claim that their songs are influenced by films, they worked their particular brand of European electro-pop magic around the films, engulfing what makes each film so distinctive, without losing their alluring sound in the process. Even without knowing what the particular movie is that Karneval may be referencing, you can get a very strong feeling of the atmospheres of each.The song Wild At Heart, inspired by the David Lynch directed film of the same name, incorporates elements of 50s rock and roll and 80s power ballads that match the rebel-with-a-cause mentality on display in the movie, while Fitzcarraldo’s gothic overtones reflect the growing madness that permeates the main character’s psyche. Even if you’re not familiar with the films that Karneval is referencing, they give each song a clear beginning, middle, and end, fully embodying the classical storytelling of old Hollywood, creating a mental audiovisual cinema of its own. If you are looking for truly unique notes, chords, and moans that evoke cinema, but don’t require you to surrender your butt to a seat for an hour and twenty minutes, look no further than Karneval’s Movies.
