VINDICATRIX RUIN VALUE OST

Ruin Value is the soundtrack to the film of the same name (AKA Berlin Alexanderplatz: 14 Boxes), composed and produced by Vindicatrix. “…thumping skull-rattling underlay of drums and bass. Monochrome or colour-desaturated European motorways…” the soundtrack is all original content, with cues from Johann Sebastian Bach and field recordings taken from the journey London to Berlin for collection of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz film print.


Pre-orders of the soundtrack (duration: 30 mins) will be taken from 10/06/2014, and ship on 10/07/2014, the day before Vindicatrix’s debut full live band show at Foreign Affairs: Berliner Festspiele.


Edition of 37 on gold (flakin’) cassette, numbered and stamped, with metre-long receipt insert (images and text from the film), presented in a black box.

Bulgaria, Buzludzha

Just got back from Bulgaria this morning.

We flew to Sofia from Berlin then went to Plovdiv by train to hire a car, which we drove down to the Black Sea coast near the border with Turkey and then back to Plovdiv and Sofia via the Buzludzha Monument.

This guy was standing next to a petrol station shortly before the turning for the road up the mountain. On the left of the image in the distance on the horizon you can faintly see the outline of the monument which gives you an idea how of high up you have to drive.

image

You can get in fairly easily through a small hole in the side which looks a bit sketchy at first and probably is.

image

image

It looks a fair bit more damaged than I remember in photos and there were loads of visitors including some guys who somehow managed to climb to the top of the tower on top I have no idea how.

Took alot of pictures of the mosaics round the upper level.

There’s lots of bits missing and in places you can see the artists outlines underneath, rendered in a way that gives the curious impression of vulnerable bodies beneath the cement and stone.

I also took some pictures of the 1300 Years Monument in Sofia.

Did lots of other stuff too apart from taking pictures of dilapidated communist monuments but I’m not really into holiday snaps…
