dan deacon Rat Film (Original Soundtrack) (CD, £10.50)label: domino
Domino Soundtracks are proud to present their first release, an original soundtrack recording from Dan Deacon of the provocative essay-film ‘Rat Film’. • ‘Rat Film’ marks Deacon’s first full record devoted to modern composition. In between his four ecstatic electronic-pop albums, Deacon has frequently flexed the 21st Century classical muscles he first developed studying at SUNY Purchase’s Conservatory Of Music. • ‘Rat Film’ offers the first recorded document of this parallel career - and both as a self-contained album and a companion piece to an equally potent film, it astounds. • “The aesthetic audacity alone is intriguing; combined with Maureen Jones’s icily robotic narration and Dan Deacon’s eerie electronic score, the effect is somewhere between confounding and mesmerising.” - New York Times • “‘Rat Film’, in other words, is not your typical documentary, and its mesmerising electronica score by Dan Deacon - full of whirring, bleeping and blipping, cacophonous noise, and ominous tonal swells - only enhances its eccentricity.” - The Daily Beast.
