The soundtrack to a 15 minute stop motion film of the same name, Canis. To add to the eerie, dark atmosphere of the film, Alex Pitarch created 15 minutes of drone and dense industrial sound.
A 10” in coloured grey and white swirl vinyl, hand numbered, liner notes from Robert Nevitt of the Celluloid Screams film festival, Sheffield, comes with download card. Limited to 250 copies.
6/10 Jim Staff review, 29 August 2015
Here’s an extremely limited 10” from Blackest Rainbow featuring the soundtrack to a disturbing, stop motion animation film, Canis. Apparently it’s about two men trapped in a house that’s under siege from a pack of wild dogs. There’s no dialogue in the film, just the sounds of dogs and vaguely human noises, and of course this.
The music here is a stark and unforgiving series of droning ambiences, each one varying the level of density and distortion, providing a veritable smorgasbord of claustrophobic atmospheres ranging from generalised unease all they way through to full-on, ‘I’m being savaged alive’ horror. The tracks are monolithic with little distinguishing details beyond their overall level of intensity, with occasional details hidden in the depths of static- like the baby crying that I swear I heard in there at one point.
So, one to check out if you’re a fan of the industrial soundtracks of weird cultish films like Eraserhead or Tetsuo.
