With their dark electro-acoustic sound, Wanderwelle will bring a contemporary, haunting soundtrack to the film Häxan (1922). Expect a brutal stream of guitar drones and terrifying noise combined with delicate soundscapes and layered melodies.   

The collective Wanderwelle, consisting of Alexander Bartels (1993) and Phil van Dulm (1993), works with sound and imagery. Their music resides in the twilight zone of ominous ambient and experimental music which they perform with a vast arsenal of electronic, acoustic and self-made instruments. In a brief period, they became known for their vinyl albums and live performances ranging from art galleries to Koninklijk Theater Carré. Currently, their climate crisis-inspired album trilogy is being released on the prestigious, American label Important Records. This summer, the Eye Filmmuseum is screening their debut film, The Four Nightmares, and an accompanying video installation. 

About Häxan (1922):
Grave robbing, torture, possessed nuns, and a satanic Sabbath: Benjamin Christensen’s legendary silent film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to explore the scientific hypothesis that the witches of the Middle Ages and early modern era suffered from the same ills as psychiatric patients diagnosed with hysteria in the film’s own time. Far from a dry dissertation on the topic, the film itself is a witches’ brew of the scary, the gross, and the darkly humorous. Christensen’s mix-and-match approach to genre anticipates gothic horror, documentary re-creation, and the essay film, making for an experience unlike anything else in the history of cinema.

This film will also be screened in LAB111 (without live score). Check out tickets and time slots in LAB111 here.
