Zaboitzeff, Thierry - The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari DVD
"After playing live music from 1989 to 1996 with his band Art Zoyd for the films Nosferatu (Murnau), Faust (Murnau) and Hâxan (Christensen), fifteen years later Thierry Zaboitzeff once again sets off to tackle a new project.
This time he is alone on the stage, surrounded by a complete arsenal of high-tech equipment, yet including his favourite instruments: cello, bass, percussion, guitar and his voice.
In the midst of this forest of instruments, cables and electronics, Zaboitzeff sees himself not only as a puppet master, sound artist and creator of soothing sound spaces, but as a composer in the more traditional manner, who understands how to deliver to us reference points and recognizable themes out of a film and sound delirium.
His music unfurls like an opera score, in a precise, complex-free poetry and joins together in a completely natural way with the electronic rock sound which Thierry Zaboitzeff has been developing for years.
At times the actors seem to step out of the screen and mingle with the live musician, to tell us their story, to tell us stories … because this music pierces through many layers and so leads us into Dr. Caligari’s cabinet, the inevitable benchmark of German Expressionist cinema."
