about

Astrophysik, Music for The Film "Wunder Der Schöpfung"

Astrophysik is the debut album by experimental electronic duo, Herschel 36, and features music from their critically acclaimed soundtrack to the extraordinary 1925 German silent film, Wunder Der Schöpfung (‘Wonder of Creation’), originally commissioned by the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival (a.k.a. HippFest) in 2016 and supported by Film Hub Scotland (part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network) and funded by Screen Scotland and Lottery funding from the BFI.

The film combines fact and fantasy and is an extraordinary document of human knowledge about the universe in the 1920s. Fifteen special effects experts and nine cameramen were involved in the production and some visual elements are even said to have in- spired scenes in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. This relatively obscure film has been given an entirely new lease of life by Herschel 36’s innovative soundtrack which combines dark, improvised electronic soundscapes, live drumming, soaring synth melodies, and intense musical spontaneity. Astrophysik is a snapshot of four live performances of the score, recorded during the band’s 2016 UK tour and later edited and rearranged by the band in to this 10 track album.
