Manuel Göttsching: Old Boy meets Young Girl at the Movies

img  Tobias

Shim Hyun-jung’s pieces have underpinned visually stunning work such as Park Chan-wook’s “Old Boy” as well as productions which have garnered considerable fame in ther Asian region and the European arthouse scene (such as “Sa-Kwa” from 2006). The two met at the Jecheon Film-Music Festival last year, where Göttsching performed his personal soundtrack to the classic “Schloss Vogelöd” – a dreamy, chambermusically elegant, regal and sometimes surreal work, which met with enthusiastic reactions – next to presenting “The Sound of Silents” (also by Ilona Ziok), which he produced. 

The event at the Ufa Fabrik will consist of a screening of “Old Boy” and an introduction and conversation between Göttsching and Shim Hyun-jung about “films, composing and life in music”. If you’re around, make sure to be there before 8pm on July29th!

In other news, Manuel Göttsching is set to reunite with his friends of Ashra for a special performance at the Metamorphose Festival in Japan. Scheduled exactly 30 years after the first album with this classic lineup, “Correlations”, (one of the group’s firm favourites with yours truly!) the program will be a treat to all who have followed this ensemble’s progress over the years. On the occasion of the anniversary, a special 5CD box will be released with as yet unspecified material. More information on this is, however, expected soon.
