Lubos Fiser Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Back in 2006 Finders Keepers released the score for Jaromil Jires’ 1970 film Valerie A Týden Divů (translation: Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders). Now, more than a decade on, they’re doing it all again. The film is one of the last and best works of the Czech New Wave, and Lubos Fiser’s eerie music plays a crucial part in conjuring an atmosphere of surreal, folkish horror. His soundtrack is pitched somewhere between Bela Bartok, Bernard Herrmann and mid-century library music.
Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders is a wonderful and strange film from the Czech New Wave period. It’s truly dreamlike psychedelic atmosphere is perfectly matched by Lubos Fiser’s orchestral soundtrack, which went on to influence Broadcast. This 7” EP adds to the original Finders Keepers release with unreleased versions and themes taken from the master tapes.
