julian lynch Music for How Mata Hari Lost Her Head and Found Her Body (7", £8.95)label: Soft Abuse
Includes free download. Film maker Amy Ruhl was about to begin work on her first film, an allegorical biography of the courtesan, dancer and spy Mata Hari. Spurred from talks about using a gamelan to score the film, Ruhl asked Julian Lynch to contribute songs to the film and he delivered five new instrumentals. Drawing on both Indonesian music and his own bedroom psychedelia proclivities, and casually evoking 1970s Pharaoh Sanders, Lynch's songs came to anchor key scenes in the film.
