Album Review

Pateras, Anthony – “Errors of The Human Body” – [Editions Mego]

mickeyslim   5/9/2012   12-inch, Soundtrack

Anthony Pateras, alongside a small string and wind section, set out to create the soundtrack to Eron Sheean’s Errors of the Human Body, a still unreleased movie about what appears to be genetics gone wrong. The images from the movie look quite disturbing, and the online trailer is even creepier. Pateras won Best Soundtrack for Sheean’s Bing at the Dresden Film Festival. Pateras said he tried to bring out the cold musical themes to reflect to clinical atmosphere of the Institute in the film, which is very apparent in the music. This double LP has me wanting to see this movie bad.

Most tracks start will a bell or slowly building dreamy drone.??The beginning of the album has a sense of immediacy in the layered strings, and the songs get louder as they progress. A4 sounds like a scrappy junkyard becoming a lucid dream, A6 is doomy and slow with fast strings creates this fuckfest till it slows down to a sawlike drone leaving you wanting more.B1 is a slowly growing sleeper wave with squeaky chair noise. B4 starts with shaker and percussion and sounds like a party scene, then maybe some mutation or running. C2 is an escaping helicopter and the D-side is the intense ending and resolution.

Great soundtrack, cool weird sounds, and looks like a must see once the movie comes out!
