A dazzling tribute to the great Italian horror films of the 1970s will get a retrofit all of its own at this very special event. Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s neo-giallo sees a man search for his missing wife in the labyrinthine halls of his apartment building, only to become submerged in the strange fantasies of sensuality and bloodshed emanating from the psyches of the place’s other inhabitants.
The initial release of The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears had no original score and instead used music from existing giallo films. Blanck Mass, Death Waltz Originals and East End Film Festival are now proud to present a spectacular new record that reaches beyond regular film soundtracks.
Edinburgh-based musician Ben Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) has devised a stage for experimentation and collaboration with several artists from across the globe. Each was assigned a scene to work with and given complete freedom to score it how they wanted, without any knowledge of what was planned by the other musicians. Contributions came from Stockholm’s Roll The Dice, London’s Helm, Moon Gangs, and Phil Julian, Glasgow’s Konx-Om-Pax, and New York’s C. Spencer Yeh, as well as Blanck Mass himself.
The end result is a fascinating record that enthralls, seduces and terrifies in equal measure. Death Waltz’s double vinyl is housed inside a 425gsm reverse board gatefold sleeve pressed on an exclusive screening event colour ltd to 500 units.
The screening will be followed by a DJ set from Blanck Mass and friends.

Jason Kahn & Phil Julian “Valentines”
(Confront Collectors Series ccs 35)
Recorded at Goldsmiths University of London by John Macedo, 14th February 2012.
“Valentines” documents the first duo meeting between Kahn and Julian, recorded during Kahn’s tour of the UK in 2012.
The initial idea was to meet and hopefully generate audio material that could then be used later as the basis for a composition. It seemed apparent that the three improvised pieces that makes up “Valentines” stood up well on their own merits without the need for further embellishment.
The session was recorded by John Macedo, who also conducted an interview with the pair about their approaches to recording and performing. A link to this is included on a card insert with the release.
