7/10 Laurie Staff review, 05 August 2015

Not content with the original soundtrack to the 2013 giallo revival film The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears, the East End Film festival/Blanck Mass/the directors(?) have begun this project to completely re-score it, featuring new compositions from Helm, Phil Julian, C Spencer Yeh, Moon Gangs, Roll the Dice, Konx-Om-Pax and the Blanck Mass itself. Apparently the film explores a ’complicated web of lies and murder’, yep, sounds like a film.

I’m not sure if this will thrill or kill the film’s original fans who had to deal with recycled old giallo scores, but this will most likely give the film a little popularity jolt from the world of underground music. Sweet, sweet PR. Are you supposed to play the LPs at the same time as a muted video feed of the original? Who knows. If you’re into the sexy horror thrills of giallo then this’ll fit your taste, the LPs being dark and dingy, with Helm’s clunking machine loops and atmospheric vortices promising nothing but the sharpest malice. Moon Gangs offer downtempo halloween music ranging from rhythmic to cloudy, the same being said for C Spencer Yeh, whose take is a little more freeform, presumably to reflect things changing quickly on camera. Impossible to tell. Blanck Mass contributes low, building drones that end in a couple of epic peaks, while Phil Julian does what he does best - experimental electroacoustic textures as a segue to the climax’s aftermath. Pretty cool stuff, if a little hard to connect with.
