WUNDER DER SCHÖPFUNG
In 2016 Herschel 36 were commissioned by The Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema to create new music to accompany the 1925 Silent Film “Wunder Der Schöpfung”.
“Their score was one of the best musical accompaniments I've heard. Their supremely conﬁdent but loose score ﬁtted the ﬁlm beautifully, helping to create the right sense of scale and forward motion.”
BFI Sight and Sound magazine
“Thrilling. A bold but beautifully judged reappraisal of a ground-breaking movie.” The Scotsman *****
“Just stunning… And the electronic score by duo Herschel 36 was superb.” Silent Film Calendar
The album ASTROPHYSIK is edited from live recordings of improvisations and tracks from the tour that year. ASTROPHYSIK is available from bandcamp and limited edition CDs are available at the band’s performances.
